Starch is nature’s own way of storing the sun’s energy, the energy of life. It forms the cornerstone of many diets and can be utilized for a multitude of purposes.
It is no surprise then that everyone uses starch. You’ll find it in a great number of food products as well as in paper and chemicals.
So where does starch come from? One of the richest sources of starch is wheat, which is also one of the main natural resources found in the Baltic region. And most importantly, it’s renewable.
That's where we at Roquette Amilina come in. Roquette Amilina operates a modern biorefinery that processes wheat into starch, gluten, wheat gluten feed and glucose syrup.
Roquette Amilina - one of the three largest manufacturing companies in the field of wheat biorefining in Northern Europe - is managed by the Roquette Group and Dr Danas Tvarijonavičius. As one of the largest plant-based carbohydrate and protein concentrate producers in the region, this Panevėžys-based Company exports products to Central and Northern European countries. Focused on the development of modern solutions, the Company produces products for Food, Paper, Industrial production and the Animal Nutrition industry.
