Empowering a gift of nature
Silvafeed® extracts including chestnut and quebracho tannins, saponins, polyphenols and pectins are obtained from natural raw materials, following a sourcing and production process based on the following pillars:
- Environmental stewardship: promoting good forest management practices and preventing deforestation for agricultural exploitation;
- Full traceability: 100% safe and reliable supply chain, abiding to local forestry regulations for each of the Company locations and botanical species involved;
- Sustainable production: extraction using only hot water and giving value to the by-products within the production of energy and other applications driven by circular economy principles.
Concerned for almost 170 year with the conservation of the environment, Silvateam has among its priority policies the sustainable management of forests. The practices promoted by the Company do not foresee the transformation of primary forests into mono-species plantations, they seek to strengthen them as primary forests with high productivity, maintaining biodiversity and a native ecosystem.
Silvafeed® tannins are certified organic according to Regulation EC N. 834/07 and EC N. 889/08. Moreover, the Company's production chain of chestnut and quebracho tannin extracts has been certified PEFC, a globally recognised achievement which gives credit to all the effort put in terms of ecosystem protection.
