Tesium accompanies oil mill: from the "bio-energy" project to food production

Since 2007 the Ottenstein oil mill, planned and built by Tesium, has been producing rapeseed oil which is marketed successfully as bio-fuel. The customer developed an additional income field: cold-pressed rape-seed oil, which in its natural form is a high-quality, healthy food. Tesium optimized the plant for the food-grade production.

Even in the planning phase of the bio-energy project, Tesium recommended to implement food-grade standards. A far-sighted decision, as it turned out. Two years later, the oil mill subjected itself to an audit according to the demanding requirements of the IFS (International Food Standard). After a few technical optimizations by Tesium, the oil mill passed the initial food certification at the first attempt. The result: "Higher level". Today, its cooking oil is available in supermarkets after having won numerous awards.
