Unlocking the full potential of grass
The solution to many challenges in the agricultural sector lies directly under our feet. Grassa makes 'normal' grass better. How? Through a natural process of pressing, heating and filtering. This unlocks the full nutritional value of grass. Four high-quality products are created that generate more profit and which are sustainable.
Did you know that?
- The Netherlands consists largely of grass? More than 30% of the surface is grassland
- Grass is an enormously nutrient-rich crop and produces 2.5 times more protein per hectare than one hectare of soy?
- Grass can grow in places where no other food can be grown?
- Grass enhances soil quality, CO2 binding and biodiversity
A better alternative
For the Cow
Cows and other ruminants (such as goats and sheep) are the only animals that can eat grass. Unfortunately, the cow does not handle the richness from the grass as efficiently. 50-75% of the nutrients in the grass are turned into emissions and manure by the cow.
Grassa's solution is simple: unlocking grass and extracting precisely those nutrients that the cow would otherwise waste. Grassa uses the extracted nutrients – grass, protein and sugars – to make food for other animals and, in the long run, also for humans. The remaining decomposed grass is a high-quality and sustainable roughage that can be fed in the ration of dairy cattle instead of silage.

Working with Grassa?
We are proud that our concept contributes to many Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). But the grass is always greener with the neighbors. Will you help us make the grass greener… for everyone?
