In addition to satisfying current Norwegian Food Safety Authorities standards for food, additional internationally recognised certifications include FSSC 22000, GMP+, Halal, Kosher, Debio and EU-organic. Vestkorn was the first one of its kind to hold an ISO 22000 – certificate in Europe. From January 2020 Vestkorn also became FSSC 22000-approved. No one in Europe extracting protein based on dry method processing like Vestkorn was FSSC 22000-certified earlier than us!


Vestkorn is a privately owned company and a leading producer in Europe of natural concentrates from dry fractionation of pulses. Vestkorn is the biggest and most experienced of its kind in Europe. Further we are also the first in the world to have a purpose-built texturising line for pea- and faba protein fully integrated with the protein extraction. This improves both sustainability, transparency and quality.

The history of the company starts in 1855. We are running a mill being in operation in more than 160 years, going through good and bad periods, sun and rain, big changes in the society and two world wars. The mill has survived because of the customer focus, the will and capability to change and the focus on process leadership. We are a part of this history and we are quite proud of it!
