European animal feed supplier focuses on sustainable production

Animine's Eco-Label lets customers know its products are sustainably produced

European animal feed industry supplier Animine says it is taking an active role to educate its customers about sustainable practices.

Part of its initiative involves printing company and product documentation on recycled, EcoLabel-certified paper. This can be identified by the European EcoLabel flower, which Animine says represents the low environmental impacts throughout a product’s life cycle, from manufacturing to disposal. EcoLabel production initiatives include reduced air and greenhouse gas emissions, decreased water pollution, reduced energy consumption, reduced risks to human health and use of recycled fibers or virgin fibers from sustainably managed forests.

“We believe that our customers, in the western world and in emerging countries, will feel more and more responsible on the environmental consequences of their activities,” the company said. “With paper documents or with many other examples, Animine will take the lead to show eco-friendly initiatives to the feed industry”.
