Description
Since 1996 Prorec has joined forces with food manufacturers to repurpose food waste into nutritional animal feeds.

Prorec is specialized in valorization of food waste and byproducts for animal feed. Leader in Eastern Canada, Prorec offers an environmentally responsible and cost effective way of recycling food waste. Prorec also offers a wide range of innovative agricultural products. Recovering and reusing food waste is critical because it leads to a drastic reduction in the consumption of prime material and consumable resources. That is why Prorec is a major player in sustainable development and for the green economy of Quebec! By giving a second life to materials otherwise intended to landfill, we contribute to reduce the environmental impact of animal husbandry each and every day. Putrescible organic material is particularly responsible for the acidification of soils and methane leakage when buried into landfill. If a part of the methane generated in the landfill is collected, fugitive emissions still remain very important. Therefore, diverting organic matter from landfills is set as a priority. Today, thanks to this effort, more than 100,000 metric tons of organic residues are now re-used in animal feeding on an annual basis and in full compliance with animal feed standards. Prorec contributes to sustainable development! Our impact each year is the equivalent of:  6,700 acres of crops repurposed  30,000 tons of co2 avoided  120,000 cubic meters of landfill space saved  Feed for 200,000 pigs  And 15,000 units of carbon offsets marketed
