About Agrone

Our mission is to safeguard life in rural Estonia and guarantee that the food we put on the table in Estonia as well as abroad is of the highest quality. The aim of the companies belonging to the Agrone group is to farm the fields and grasslands of Estonia and to produce foodstuffs, ensuring the preservation of soil fertility and reducing the negative environmental effects of farming.

The companies of Agrone group are among the largest food producing companies in Estonia in terms of land use and production volume and that is why we have acknowledged our responsibility for the preservation of our natural and living environment.

Our group’s six companies are agricultural businesses with longstanding traditions boasting knowledge and experience that have been handed down from generation to generation. We currently employ approximately 250 industrious, hardworking and cheerful people.

Agrone - tugevused (4)

In Estonia, Agrone farms approximately 13 000 hectares of crop- and grasslands. The agricultural land belongs to our companies called Trebor Agro OÜ and Muuland AS.

We grow a wide variety of food cereals and feed crops as well as oil crops such as wheat, rye, oat, rapeseed and maize.

In 2020, we harvested around 34 000 tons of cereal and oil crops from the fields that we farm.

Besides growing cereals, we manage and farm approximately 4300 hectares of grasslands that provide us with the necessary fodder for our dairy cattle.

One in four litres of milk consumed in Estonia in the form of drinking milk or used in the production of other dairy products is brought to you by us.

In 2020, our companies produce around 50 000 tons of raw milk that is used to produce Estonian dairy products renowned for their good taste. These include drinking milk and kefir, yoghurt and sour cream, cheese and cottage cheese, butter and powdered milk, quark creams and curd snacks.

The chicken farms of Eesti Muna OÜ, a company in our group, supply Estonians with around 30 million eggs a year. In stores, our eggs can be found under the brand names of Muna Liisa, Kodukoha and Häämuna.

Sustainable Management

How can we cope with the growing demand and continue to produce healthy and nutritious food in an environmentally sustainable way? This is a major challenge for any agri-food company.

Dairy products represent the largest share of the Agrone group’s production and have a big importance in the world’s food consumption as a major part of the population consumes these products daily. Dairy products have a high nutritional value – they are the fifth best energy source and the third best source of protein and fatty acids. And all this at affordable prices.

It is prognosed that the world’s population will have grown from the current 7.6 billion to 8.6 billion already by 2030. But in 30 years’ time, there will be already 9.8 billion of us. The Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) predicts that the global demand for food increases twofold in the next 30 years.

The FAO considers that from the point of view of the environment, one of the most important aspects of sustainable food production is to pay attention to the amount of greenhouse gases emitted in the course of production. Excessive emissions lead to global warming that can cause irreversible damage to our planet’s natural and living environment. Important environmental aspects pertaining to agriculture are also reckless groundwater overuse and conservation of biodiversity and soil fertility.

In 2019, we took a strategic decision to launch a green action programme in our group with the aim of employing the principles of circular economy to the fullest in our production activities in order to reduce in the next 15 years the harmful footprint our activity has on the natural and living environment.

Our green programme focuses mainly on the reduction of carbon emissions, preservation of soil fertility, sustainable use of groundwater and the increased use of green energy.
The specific action plan includes a wide range of activities: the use of methane emissions from livestock without releasing them into the environment, the use of renewable energy in the lighting and heating of our facilities and in the operation of our equipment, changing soil cultivation practices, increasing rainwater harvesting and maximising waste recycling. The first step is to determine the point of net zero carbon emissions of our companies in cooperation with Sustinere OÜ.

Our long-term goal is to contribute to the halting of global warming and to achieve carbon neutral dairy and agricultural production by 2035. Our aim is to avoid cutting our production volumes in the process. This will ensure the continued supply of affordable agri-food products to our consumers.

We will work together with the dairy sector, retail companies as well as consumers in order to reduce the environmental burden and to ensure that carbon neutral management becomes a norm in our entire value chain.

The Green Tiger Programme

To further ourselves and boost the whole sector, we have joined the new and unprecedented private sector environmental initiative called „Rohetiiger“ (the Green Tiger), the aim of which is to develop sustainable economic models in different sectors of the economy and to pioneer their introduction in Estonia as well as the rest of the world. Our participation in the Green Tiger programme is driven by the desire to contribute, together with other responsible businesses, to the development of sustainable economic models, learn from the best practices and promote the wider introduction of related management methods.
