The company

SO.PR.E.D. is an agricultural cooperative that has operated in the dehydrated alfalfa and forage sector since 1960.

Today, Società Produzioni Erbe Disidratate is a modern business that supplies both the national and international markets. It dehydrates and packages forages in its two production facilities, “Standiana” and “Cà Bosco”, exporting this quality Italian product worldwide.

Products

SO.PR.E.D. products contribute to the animals’ wellbeing
and come in different sizes and packaging options.

Love for the land

We are a cooperative of more than 1000 producers who contribute the production of over 5000 hectares of alfalfa grown throughout the province of Ravenna and its surrounding areas.  

SO.PR.E.D. has the utmost respect for the environment, turning its members’ forage into a top-quality product, and this is a source of great pride for the cooperative.

SO.PR.E.D. uses NO GMO certified Italian seeds, so all the forages are totally GMO FREE.

100% Italian production

Our products are palatable and highly digestible, they have a high nutrient content and are free of contaminants and impurities. The quality of our products depends on many different factors, including cutting and harvesting.  

We are able to choose the best time to cut the alfalfa, when it is high in protein and digestible elements, and when the plant has the right amount of digestible fibre.

SO.PR.E.D. Soc.Coop.Agr. in touch with the times

Environment

The Cooperative invests a large part of its resources in energy-saving technologies, cutting its greenhouse gas emissions.
Alfalfa in our area is grown without pesticides, which means healthier plants, animals and people.

Harvest

Modern harvest methods make it possible to obtain unmodified fibre, guaranteeing high nutritional value, with the same length and structure typical of traditional forage.

Sanitation

Foreign matter (metal, stones, soil, plastic etc.) is removed during the controlled drying process at 100° C; this ensures the forage is completely sanitized.

Dehydration

Ventilated dehydration is a preservation method used to remove the risk of future fermentation and preserve and enhance the superior organoleptic and nutritional properties of the plant.

Packaging

Our range of products – pellets, small and large bales – in various formats and types is able to meet all our customers’ requirements.
The high-density pressing also means volume is reduced, for lower transportation, handling and storage costs.

Certification

SO.PR.E.D. has organic production and GMP+ certification and all its processes are constantly monitored by our highly qualified staff.
All our products are traceable, so we can reconstruct the journey and processing history of each batch throughout production and distribution.
