According to demographic developments, the food and feed industry will have to double their production, while taking care of sustainability – i.e. the ecological, social and economic impact. BENEO actively approaches these challenges by constantly improving sustainability along the entire value chain.
Not only do we make sure that our natural sources are farmed in a sustainable manner, we also optimise our production processes continuously. With investments in forward-looking technologies, foresighted planning of production sites and careful maintenance, BENEO has managed to continuously improve energy efficiency, for example.
We constantly invest in sustainable solutions, like energy recovery from biomass. Hence we can meet the needs of today while keeping in mind tomorrow’s generations.
