The head-office and production are located in Tau, on the south-west coast of Norway, while sales office is centrally located in Holstebro, Denmark. At the same location Vestkorn also has a warehouse. Vestkorn is the most experienced producer of pea- and faba protein concentrates in Europe and the first and only to offer a narrow +/-1% difference on its pea protein. The unique stability and quality of our protein- and starch concentrates make an important difference for many customers.
CERTIFIED TO INTERNATIONALLY RECOGNISED STANDARDS
Vestkorn is certified to internationally recognised standards that demonstrate our commitment meeting the quality, food safety and lifestyle standards of customers in the 21st Century.
In addition to satisfying current Norwegian Food Safety Authorities standards for food, additional internationally recognised certification includes ISO 22000, GMP, Halal, Kosher, Debio and EU-organic. Vestkorn was the first one of its kind to hold an ISO 22000 – certificate in Europe. The audit for FSSC 22000-approval has recently been done and approval is expected within short.
COMPANY STARTS IN 1855
Vestkorn is a privately owned company and a leading producer in Europe of natural concentrates from dry fractionation of pulses. Vestkorn is also the first in the world to have a texturising line for pea- and faba protein fully integrated with protein extraction. This improves sustainability 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!
ONLY VESTKORN IS VESTKORN
Recently a former distributor has started his own production, but avoids telling the customers that he do not represent Vestkorn anymore. If you want the Vestkorn-quality, ask for it!
