Pet Protein

Pet Protein

PetProtein, our oldest processing plant in Sesvetski Kraljevec, processes Category 3 animal by-products. These by-products, such as slaughterhouse by-products and waste, bones, poultry parts, etc., are not hazardous to animal health and can be used in production of pet food and in aquaculture nutrition.

PetProtein has three product lines. One line for the poultry soft part, the other for the poultry feathers and the third for the other, mixed material. By-products are processed according to the method prescribed by the EU. At PetProtein we produce poultry flour, animal protein and animal fat, which are used mainly as an ingredient in pet food. Our main clients are the meat processing industry, slaughterhouses, farms, general food processing industry, chain stores, etc. As part of this facility, but separated from the Category 3 production lines, are premises in which waste cooking oil is collected, treated and later used as a biodiesel component.

Animal by-products are a valuable raw material. As Category 3 by-products are not hazardous to animal health, they are mainly used in the pet food industry but can be used in the chemical industry as well. According to the principle of circular waste management, as well as the principle of by-products; each product should first be repurposed, i.e. we should try to develop a new product.  We transform our valuable raw material into new raw material for various industries. In this way, we uphold the principle of circular economy and contribute to the protection of health and environment.
