Foster livestock, Feed sustainably

Our four priorities


Icon enable people Icon foster young animals Icoon source responsibly icon reduce footprint

As a family-owned business, sustainability is in our DNA. We are committed to a sustainable and responsible food system and making a positive impact on people, animals and the planet.

As an innovative producer of high-quality feed for young animals and veal calves, Denkavit wants to contribute to sustainable food production. We believe that animals are crucial for our food ecosystem. By upgrading by-products from human food production into high-value products, we contribute to a circular economy and circular agriculture.

Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) is deeply embedded in our way of doing business. Together with people from all parts of Denkavit we developed a new sustainability program: DenkaGreen.
