Biorigin is proud to announce that its 3 Brazilian production units are now ISO 14001/2015.
The company reinforces its commitment to sustainability and achieves ISO 14001/2015 for its Quatá, Lençóis Paulista and Macatuba units in Brazil
Between 7th and 10th October 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', says 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', adding Steinmetz.
Biorigin is dedicated to the art of creating and producing innovative natural ingredients for the health and well-being of people and animals. Committed to adding value to its customers' products, it ensures traceability, sustainability, and quality throughout the production process, from the raw material sugarcane to the finished products.
It is the first company to obtain the Bonsucro Chain of Custody certification for yeast extracts and derivatives produced from fermentable sugar and sugarcane yeast cream, demonstrating iorigin's commitment to social, environmental, and economic practices through sustainable sourcing.
