LIQUID PRODUCTS

Molasses, feed and liquid products

We know the science behind molasses; we’ve used it to create pioneering animal feeds and industrial products for over 80 years.

  • To create the perfect product for farmers’ needs we blend feeds with proteins, amino acids, vitamins and minerals.
  • We have liquid storage facilities all over the world plus a network of tankers, barges, rail cars and road trucks, so we can get our products to you, wherever you are and whenever you need it.
  • We source four million tonnes of molasses from more than 50 countries each year and use over one million tonnes of liquid co-products from the food and agricultural industries. 
  • For farm customers we offer a range of extra services and provide on-farm storage tanks and feed-distributing equipment.
  • For industrial companies we’ve developed pioneering ways to use molasses in fertilisers, fermentation, construction, renewable energy and to treat waste.

 

Animal feed

We tailor our products to suit each farmer’s herd and create feed supplements by formulating molasses with proteins, amino acids, vitamins and minerals.

As a beef, dairy, pork or sheep farmer, you need healthy livestock – the right feed can improve your animals’ health and growth, increase meat and milk yields and improve fertility and breeding results.

As well as getting the right nutrition your practical needs are important too, so we have products to reduce build-up on feed-mixing equipment and that will handle well in cold weather.

Plus, if you need on-farm storage and feed-distributing equipment, we’ll help you with that too – from 30-tonne storage tanks to smaller plastic containers, and fixed and portable feeders.

Industrial uses for molasses

Fermentation 
We offer molasses to produce monosodium glutamate, rum, industrial-grade alcohol, citric acid and yeast.

Fertilisers  
We blend molasses products with minerals and trace elements to stimulate plant-growth, improve soil quality and create high performance, cost-effective fertilisers.

Agglomeration  
Molasses is an excellent binder: viscose, safe to use and environmentally friendly, you can use it to bind a range of materials, including steel, glass and carbon.

Bioenergy  
We supply molasses and vegetable oils to the European bio-energy and biofuel markets as a source of renewable energy. 

Bioremediation
 
You can use molasses as a biological way to break down soil, treat wastewater and remove pollutants from contaminated materials (bioremediation). Molasses encourages microbes to grow and speeds up the process in an environmentally sustainable way.

Building 
The construction industry uses molasses to improve the quality of, and delay the setting of, concrete.

Fish oil  

Fish oil is an important feed ingredient for our aquaculture customers, and research has confirmed its health benefits. It’s also used to make Omega 3 for human food supplements and is increasingly used in pharmaceutical products.

Fishmeal 

Fishmeal is a vital animal and aquaculture feed ingredient. We market fishmeal as an additional service for our fish oil suppliers and customers.

Glycerin 
Glycerin is a co-product from bio-diesel manufacturing that makes a good additive for animal feed.
