Quality and environment

Quality is our top priority. It does not matter whether it is raw material or end product. For this reason, we carry out regular internal and external quality controls, which can give us and our customers a good feeling of security.
The conscientiousness of our daily work is attested to by the most important certificates for food, quality and safety standards in all product and production areas. We have been receiving the certificate in accordance with VO 834/2007 (organic regulation) annually since 2016. Since 2018, we have been successfully certified according to IFS Brocker and IFS Global Markets and since 2020 we have switched to the IFS Food category. The initial certification according to IFS 6.1 was successful right away with the result "higher level".

Environmental awareness

Prolupin manufactures clean vegetarian food ingredients from lupine seeds. We implement our guiding principle to produce and to market high quality food ingredients parallel in the field of environmental protection.

We exclusively use protein resources from regional markets. Our contracts with the farmers include supervision of the whole farming process. Thus, we also avoid environmental impacts known from other protein sources such as soybean. It is not necessary to cut clear tropical rainforest for soybean production when using native lupines. In addition, the transportation distances from field to manufacturing process are short. We therefore mitigate CO2 emissions compared to other protein sources.

Lupines fix respectable amounts of nitrogen to the soil. Nitrogen fixation improves soil quality for agricultural processes. When used lupine as a pre- or intermediate crop lupine may support a sustainable mode of farming.

The Lupine Protein Isolates (LPI) produced in our plant is free from solvents such as hexane. The oil separation from the lupine seeds is CO2 neutral. We store the product in recyclable synthetic containers to avoid waste from packaging.

We use solar energy to fuel our process produced at our production site.

Environmental protection is part of our mission and daily business.
