Adopting a circular economy across the 3F Plus chain

The advantages of the 3F Plus (FEED – FARM – FOOD) chain and technological advancements have enabled GREENFEED to gradually approach and promote application of the circular economy model into production activities at its factories and farms.

Many sustainability initiatives have been implemented and offered promising results such as wastewater treatment, waste management, renewable energy. In particular, livestock waste is processed through a treatment system. Specifically, the wastewater in livestock production is treated through the biogas recovery system, producing energy to run a generator. Solid waste is being used for composting fertilizer and producing earthworms, with vermicompost as an end-product to provide nutrients that all plants can benefit from. Vermicompost is then provided to farmers for cultivation or GREENFEED farms to grow green areas around. This process not only helps GREENFEED effectively manage livestock waste but also create value-added products for consumers and local communities.

Shifting to renewable energy and promoting resource efficiency

It contributes to a rise in renewable energy utilization and a decrease in greenhouse gas emissions. Additionally, GREENFEED also takes steps to reduce the usage of plastic packaging through distributing bulk feed via silo systems.
