MLP is the market leader across a number of commodities including molasses, sugar beet pulp and fish oils.
Our team of committed experts can help you meet the short and longer-term challenges and opportunities in the market.

We partner with primary producers, industrial processors and upstream customers of all types and sizes to help them meet their customers’ needs, stay ahead of the market and thrive.

Molasses and Liquid Co-Products

We know the science behind molasses and liquid co-products; we’ve used it to create pioneering animal feeds and industrial products for almost 100 years.

To create the perfect product for farmers or feed manufacturers, we can produce feed blends with a combination of sugars, proteins, amino acids, vitamins and minerals. We have global coverage of liquid storage facilities plus a network of tankers, barges, rail cars and road trucks, so we can get our products to you, wherever you are and whenever you need it.

We source over four million tonnes of molasses from more than 50 countries each year. We also upcycle over one million tonnes of liquid co-products from bio-fuel plants, distilleries, yeast plants, corn processors, soy processors, cheese factories and many other food and agricultural operations.

For farm customers, we offer a range of extra services and provide on-farm storage tanks and feed-distributing equipment.

For industrial companies, we’ve developed innovative ways to use molasses in fertilisers, fermentation, construction, renewable energy and to treat waste.

Animal Feed / Liquid Feed Products

We know our customers and tailor our products to suit individual feed manufacturers and specific farmer’s herds. We create feed supplements by formulating molasses based liquid blends with added proteins, amino acids, vitamins and minerals.

As a beef, dairy, pork or sheep farmer, you need healthy livestock – the right feed can improve your animals’ health and growth, increase meat and milk yields and improve fertility and breeding results all leading to improved welfare and profitability.

As well as getting the right nutrition, your practical needs are important too. We have products to reduce build-up on feed-mixing equipment and that will handle well in cold weather. Plus, if you need on-farm storage and feed-distributing equipment, we’ll help you with that too – from 30-tonne storage tanks to smaller plastic containers, and fixed and portable feeders.

Non-Feed Uses for Molasses

Fermentation: We offer beet and cane molasses to produce monosodium glutamate, rum, industrial-grade alcohol, citric acid and yeast and a whole range of other fermentation processes.

Liquid Fertilisers: We blend molasses products with minerals and trace elements to stimulate plant-growth, improve soil quality and create high performance, cost-effective fertilisers.

Agglomeration: Molasses is an excellent binder: viscose, safe to use, sustainable and environmentally friendly. You can use it to bind a range of materials, including steel, glass and carbon.

Bioenergy: We supply molasses and vegetable oils to the European bio-energy and biofuel markets as a source of renewable energy.

Bioremediation: You can use specifically formulated molasses blends as a biological way to break down soil, treat wastewater and remove pollutants from contaminated materials (bioremediation). Molasses encourages microbes to grow and speeds up the process in an environmentally sustainable way.

Building: The construction industry uses molasses to improve the quality of, and delay the setting of, concrete.

Dry Products

We offer a large range of dry products for animal feed including beet pulp and citrus pulp. You can find further information at ED&F Man Feedimpex

Fats and Oils

Fish Oil and Fishmeal: Fish oil is an important feed ingredient for our aquaculture customers, and research has confirmed its health benefits. It’s also used to make Omega 3 for human food supplements and is increasingly used in pharmaceutical products.

Fishmeal is a vital animal and aquaculture feed ingredient. We market fishmeal as an additional service for our fish oil suppliers and customers.

Vegetable Oils: We trade and distribute vegetable oils and fats to use in a number of industries.

Glycerin: Glycerin is a co-product from bio-diesel manufacturing that makes an excellent high energy additive for animal feed.
