Sustainability


Shared value

For Novidon sustainability is about maintaining a long-term business. This requires creating shared value; business value for our suppliers and customers and at the same time creating a positive impact on planet and people.

Water saving
Novidon is Europe’s largest purchaser of sidestream starch.
Sidestream starch recovery enables the potato industry to reuse their process water. This results in up to 50% water saving.


Circular Resource Use
By valorizing co-products of the potato industry, potatoes are optimally used and waste is avoided. In this way Novidon contributes to a circular agrifood system that respects the planetary boundaries.


Lower Carbon Footprint
Novidon’s products are based on co-products instead of potato starch which is processed in a traditional way from the whole potato; extracted and refined directly from the seeds, roots and tubers. This results, among others, in starch with a 50% lower carbon footprint than traditional starch.
