Prime Molasses Creates New Organic Company

Prime Molasses, the UK molasses arm of Peter Cremer Gmbh, has underlined its commitment to the organic feed market by setting up a subsidiary company, Prime Organic Ltd. The business has simultaneously acquired the assets of an organic soyabean crushing facility in North Killingholme, North Lincolnshire.

The business will be headed up by Greg Dunn, who has been appointed General Manager.

Prime Molasses managing director John Hughes believes the start up gives the company an ideal opportunity to grow and diversify within the animal feed sector, without competing with its core customer base. "This development allows us to grow in a sector that we already have experience in, following the start up of our organic molasses operation last year," says Mr Hughes.

"Prime Organic is uniquely positioned to supply quality organic products that have been processed in the UK to the highest possible standards. This should give organic producers some welcome assurance at a time when certain imported raw materials have given buyers some genuine causes for concern," he added.

"The expeller crush facility in North Killingholme processes whole organic soyabeans, producing 42% protein/8% oil organic soyabean cake and organic soyabean oil, and both products are available in both bulk and tote bags/IBCs," said Mr Dunn.

"The recent melamine issue has obviously heightened organic home-mixers' concerns about food safety and organic provenance, and as Prime Organic is the only producer of organic expeller soya meal in the UK (please note that organic full fat soya is a totally different product), we are well placed to meet increased demand," he concluded.
