Pet Food PRO - October 2022: Plant-based proteins for more sustainable pet food
Inside the third number of Pet Food Pro magazine, published in October 2022, you can find our article on the use of plant-based proteins to obtain a more environmental-friendly pet food.
Pet food industry is constantly growing, but so it its impact on the environment!
Just to produce dry pet food, every year around 41-48 million hectares of land are used and 106 million tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalents are emitted.
The main cause of this is the high amount of meat included in pet food, therefore it is fundamental to find sustainable alternatives to it. An example? Plant based proteins! Their potential in pet food industry is huge, as the market demand for trends like natural, organic, vegetarian/vegan is growing.
To answer this interest, Sevecom offers both traditional and innovative plant-based proteins. Starting from corn gluten meal and soy protein, to rice, pea and potato protein up until the very innovative sunflower protein, Lemna and single cell protein.
