is in our nature.
Like the soil from which we're named, we are a diverse mixture, comprised of scientists, researchers, technicians, innovators and stewards of nature's fantastic resources.
As Houdek soil brings agricultural wealth to the world, we provide the aquaculture, pet health and human wellness markets with rich, plant-based protein ingredients.
Since you're here, we trust that somehow, someway, we can share our natures, together.
