Develop a sustainable development journey inspired by our customers’ expectations
Strengthen sustainability in our innovation processes
We continue advancing towards excellence. In Vic-sur-Aisne (France), almost 100% of the peas we use are already compliant with the pea chain specifications that Roquette has developed to meet very high requirements in terms of quality, traceability and durability of finished products. And already nearly 60% of peas are sustainable, a percentage that keeps growing.
The Roquette French sustainable pea chain was created more than two years ago and is based on a relationship of trust with cooperatives and their farmers.
This success results from rigorous control of the good practices from the fields until the arrival to our site. We can meet our customers’ requirements for plant-based proteins because of selecting varieties with our suppliers, monitoring the agricultural technical route with the limited use of plant health products, and optimizing logistics.
Beyond offering high quality ingredients, this collaboration allows us to develop a close relationship with cooperatives and farmers, while limiting our environmental impacts.
