Develop a sustainable development journey inspired by our customers’ expectations
Strengthen sustainability in our innovation processes
With one existing plant in Vic-sur-Aisne (France) and another one being built in Portage la Prairie (Canada), Roquette will soon become a buyer of more than 250,000 tons of yellow pea to better serve its customers all around the world with high quality plant products.
To better meet the expectations of Food, Nutrition and Health markets, we are adapting our sourcing strategy by favoring a pea of unique quality that respects the environment. The creation of a sustainable sector is a priority for Roquette and the basis of our procurement strategy. Pea is a legume and its virtues are numerous.
In collaboration with our pea suppliers, we have defined an innovative agronomic practices, based on varietal selection, optimized farming practices, controlled management of plant protection products, traceability from seeds to the Roquette production sites and dedicated logistics.
Following the successful launch of this initiative at small scale, a global deployment is underway. We support an approach of progressing towards responsible agronomic specifications, the adoption of modern technologies and digitization for the intelligent monitoring of crops.
