We are committed to helping raise the quality of life for people and animals in terms of health and nutrition. Much of our Research and Development efforts are focused on how we can best fulfill this promise.
This is achieved by developing and producing innovative ingredients for a healthy diet and enjoyable quality of life, and producing functional ingredients to enhance the properties of human food, animal feed and pet food.
How we contribute to safe food & feed is highlighted in these two cases that transform our commitment into results:
INNOVATIVE DIETARY PROTEIN SOURCES
How we are investigating proteins in their broadest sense to offer the markets more possibilities to benefit from animal proteins
GIVING YOUNG ANIMALS A BETTER START
How we reinforce the gut defense system of piglets by repurposing natural materials with unique nutritional properties
“Every day, our extensive R&D program focuses on making better and healthier ingredients. In a world where lifestyle-related diseases are on the increase, ingredients that can lower the use of salt, sugar and fat in our diets can make an important contribution to a healthier lifestyle. Nature also offers a wide range of bio-functional ingredients that can have a positive effect on human and animal well-being. Through process and product development projects, we enrich or isolate these natural components to create ingredients that can have a positive effect on bone, joint, skin and gut health. Our R&D and applications teams continually look for innovative ways to use these value added ingredients which contribute to the improved well-being of people and animals.”
