WE RAISE THE QUALITY OF LIFE FOR PEOPLE AND ANIMALS

Much of our Research & Development efforts are focused on raising the quality of life for people and animals in terms of health and nutrition.

This is achieved by developing and producing innovative ingredients for a healthy diet and enjoyable quality of life, and producing functional ingredients for human food and for animal feed and pet food.

Our approach

Our contribution to safe food & feed is highlighted in two cases that show how we transform our promise into commitment:

NEW 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.”
