SARVAL – a brand of SARVAL Fischermanns GmbH

In Marl and Hopfgarten, SARVAL Fischermanns GmbH produces protein meals and fats under the SARVAL brand from animal by-products of the so-called category 3, which are not suitable for human consumption. These include bones, offal such as heart, lungs and liver, but also tails or off-cuts. European Regulation 1069/1009 classifies these by-products as safe for human consumption. However, they are not used for food production for commercial reasons, for example.

SARVAL Fischermanns GmbH in Duisburg operates a food fat melting plant under the Fischermanns brand. In Dissen, two production lines for processing animal by-products are operated under the Kurt Fülling Tierprodukte brand. These are a fat melting plant and a production line for processing animal by-products. Both production lines manufacture fats and proteins for the pet food industry and technical applications.

SARVAL Fischermanns offers a full range of services for slaughterhouses, cutting plants and butchers throughout Germany and neighbouring countries. We also provide our suppliers with empty packaging systems for the collection and intermediate storage of raw materials on site. With the documentation of our services via mobile readers (PDA), we offer customers flexible scheduling with short-term collection rhythms as well as a digital receipt system.

Rapid disposal also guarantees high-quality end products. Depending on the quality and composition of the raw materials, this results in high-quality ingredients for pet food or technical fats, for example. SARVAL Fischermanns complies with all technical quality standards and directives of the European Union. Our products are subject to constant control by the responsible veterinary authorities. In addition, regular controls of our quality management guarantee the safety of our products.

What we do.

As the SARIA Group, we create value for our partners and the environment by acting as a reliable service provider and manufacturer of quality products for the agricultural, energy, animal feed, food, catering and pharmaceutical industries. Our extensive product and service portfolio is based on the transformation of animal by-products and organic residues into high-quality raw materials for new applications. This enables scarce natural resources to be conserved at many levels. Accordingly, our business model makes an important contribution to environmental sustainability.

How we follow our goals.

Our activities are characterised by entrepreneurial thinking combined with a high degree of local ownership. As a long-established family business, pragmatism, a hands-on mentality and passion for our business are also very important to us.
We want to be the preferred partner for sustainable solutions, setting best-in-class standards within our industry. This commitment is backed by strong customer focus, reliability and many years of expertise in what we do. Quality-oriented processes also enable us to meet individual requirements. We regard uncompromising compliance with legal, ethical, social and ecological standards as fundamental to establishing long-term business relationships and fulfilling our corporate responsibility.

Our Framework.

We have set out our ambitions and values in the SARIA Framework, which serves as an anchor and point of reference for our day-to-day activities. At the same time, it is a promise to you, as our business partners, to work together in a spirit of trust and to successfully shape the future together.

Our contribution to sustainability

The SDGs are the core of the 2030 Agenda, which the United Nations adopted in 2015. They are preceded by five core messages as principles guiding action: People, Planet, Prosperity, Peace and Partnership (“The 5 Ps”).

We would like to show you what SARIA is doing to achieve these goals and what concrete measures we are taking to be ecologically, economically and socially sustainable. More
