Denmark based Hamlet Protein producer of specialty soy ingredients for young animals, is taking steps to secure product supply to customers and guaranteeing feed safety whilst minimizing the risk for employees, suppliers and customers.
Hamlet Protein produces soy-based protein ingredients for young piglet, poultry and cattle feed at two production plants in Denmark and the US. Hamlet Protein services customers around the world through a network of own sales offices and distributors. Since half March the Danish borders have been closed and schools and public offices have shut down. “We are taking the necessary steps to minimize the risk of the virus affecting employees and business partners”, says Erik Visser, Hamlet Protein CEO.
“At the same time, we have commitments to customers around the world that rely on us to feed their animals. That means we are planning our activities in a smart way to make sure our production and supply chain continues to operate normally. Even though borders are closed in several European countries, the free movement of goods remains.”
Hamlet Protein products have been steam heat treated at a minimum temperature of 96°C for a minimum duration of 6 minutes and are being produced in a closed system. Hamlet Protein manages clearly defined and strict hygiene guidelines for employees and contractors. Until further notice, external visitors are not allowed to enter the production facilities at the Hamlet Protein plant. “We continue to be available for our customers to answer any questions or concerns they might have,” states Visser.
