The segment Edible Seeds is covered by the Acomo companies Red River Commodities, Red River-Van Eck and SIGCO Warenhandel. They provide safe products for human and wildlife consumption, delivered on time and on spec.
Sunflower seeds, both in-shell and kernels, poppy seeds and other edible seeds are the core products within this segment. Extensive research on the properties of sunflower seeds has led to two new products: Sunbutter® and Sunnypaste®. Sunbutter® is a healthy, allergy free alternative to peanut butter. Sunnypaste® is a substitute for nuts paste and is used in the confectionary and chocolate industry.
Our role in the supply chain
