We are always looking for the best possible ingredients with the smallest possible climate footprint since we strongly feel that the need to reduce the food system’s CO2 footprint is urgent and of high importance. There is currently no access to European or Swedish (nor Canadian for the North American market) organic pea protein, but we are maintaining a continuous dialogue with suppliers, innovative companies and farmers with the ambition to launch organic products in the future.
Having said that, peas, in general, are resistant to pests and molds. Peas are rarely sprayed with pesticides and this means that none to very low amounts of pesticides are detected in the harvested pea plant. If any, pesticides have most commonly accumulated in the soil from earlier crop rotations.
