Acatris and Schouten Products have opened a new factory for the production of SoyLife (natural soy germ isoflavone concentrates) in Poederooijen, the Netherlands.
The new factory expands the existing facilities, and guarantees the continuity of the supply of Identity Preserved, non-GMO SoyLife. Both Acatris and Schouten Products are full divisions of the Royal Schouten Group of the Netherlands.
Bert Piest, CEO of the Royal Schouten Group, opened the new factory. SoyLife is produced by Schouten Products, while the worldwide marketing and distribution is in the hands of Acatris. The new facility allows Schouten Products and Acatris to maintain and further expand their position in the market for natural isoflavone concentrates, a market that is currently characterised by an increasing demand.
SoyLife is a soy germ ingredient that provides all the isoflavones, proteins, oligosaccharides, vitamin K, folic acid, essential fatty acids and other nutrients naturally found in soy germ.
To secure the natural matrix of nutrients, SoyLife is produced through a mechanical process, without the use of solvents.
