Our scientifically documented soy-based specialty ingredients improve health, welfare and performance of young animals. That is how we deliver a strong return on investment to producers around the world.
A healthy business starts with healthy animals
Ever since Hamlet Protein was founded in 1989, our core belief has been that providing the right nutrition in the very first life stage determines the health and welfare of the young animal and thus, the performance of farm animals in general. That is why we care about young animal nutrition.
The consistent performance of our clean products, based on extensive scientific research and close relationships with our customers, has made Hamlet Protein the supplier of choice when it comes to soy based specialty ingredients.
Today we partner with feed mills, integrators, home mixers and farmers all over the world. Our local experts provide solutions for today’s and tomorrow’s challenges. That is how we build longstanding value and contribute to sustainable businesses and products.
