The company utilises zero-waste approach when it comes to both eliminating waste in the production cycle and recycling the waste products. Balticovo collaborates with a bio gas producer to which all the manure originating at the company's hen houses is delivered for energy production. All the manure gets collected and the digestate – the material remaining after the anaerobic digestion of the manure has taken place – is used in the production of bio gas, whereas the remaining material is collected again, dried, processed thermally and used as a high quality fertilized.

 

Balticovo has recently introduced a number of liquid egg products – egg whites, scrambled egg, and liquid bottled pancake mix in convenient shape and size to retail stores and is constantly working on development of new innovative products. Such additions to the company's product range are launched as a response to the growing market demand for innovative products that enable speed and convenience where food preparation is involved.
