Biorigin is proud to announce that its three Brazilian production units are now ISO 14001/2015.
Between October 7-10, 2019, a team of auditors from the ABS-QE certifier analyzed the company's environmental management practices. The audit was ended without records of non-compliance and Biorigin received the recommendation which recognizes the sustainable actions and goals promoted by the company and which contributes to the search for increasingly demanding customers and markets.
Biorigin is always following the most important demands and market trends in order to work on the art of creating natural and sustainable solutions which promote people and animals ́ health and well-being.
“Consumers seek healthy, natural alternatives that bring appeals for sustainability. In addition, they require transparency from the food and pet food industries and from the animal protein chain, checking product labels and animal production condition and their impact on environment,” said Mario Steinmetz, Biorigin General Manager.
ISO 14001 is the international standard that specifies requirements for an effective environmental management system (EMS). It provides a framework that an organization can follow, rather than establishing environmental performance requirements.
“We have built a solid path to demonstrate to our stakeholders that our ingredients, in addition to their natural origin, quality and technology, have important environmental added value to food and feed industries worldwide,” added Steinmetz.
Still in its infancy, cell-cultured meat is being looked at for its possibilities, but environmental challenges exist, as well.
