Nourishing a Sustainable Future

With the world population projected to reach 9.8 billion by 2050 and with sub-Saharan Africa’s population expected to grow the fastest, overcoming the challenges facing 21st century agriculture is not an easy feat. The industry and markets must continuously readjust and reorganise to produce more food for a growing population with a smaller rural labour force, adopting more efficient and sustainable production methods to adapt to climate change.

At Protea Chemicals we believe in partnering with our customers and suppliers to find innovative ways of overcoming these challenges. Through our value-added services and smart solutions, we are committed to ensuring a sustainable future for your business.

The growing interest from consumers in the food supply chain goes beyond the farm.  It starts with the manufacturer. As a responsible leader in the agricultural sector, quality is our number one priority. We supply only the highest standard of raw ingredients sourced from reliable, sustainable partners. Our ingredients aim to support the health care, growth and efficiency of various animal and crop species.
