Procurement and Sustainability
AgroHorizon sources raw materials (Lecithins, vegetable oils and auxiliary substances) in Europe. We avoid importing Lecithins from other continents. We buy other ingredients from producers ideally closest to our production sites. Packaging materials are supplied by local manufacturers. Longer transport distances are bridged by intermodal haulage to reduce road transport to a minimum.
AgroHorizon can use Non-GMO soy Lecithins from European origins in its formulations. This ensures the traceability of the lecithin down to the soil. The manufacturing processes are easy to be audited. Cross-contamination with GMOs can be much better prevented than on long and intercontinental supply chains.
Together with European oil millers AgroHorizon develops their Lecithins. For those Non-GM soy Lecithins, the Non-GM soybeans are grown within a short radius around the oil mills.
