International Feed Industry Federation, FEFANA partner on specialty feed ingredients

Organizations launch Specialty Feed Ingredients Sustainability project to measure role on environmental impact of livestock production

The International Feed Industry Federation and the EU Association of Specialty Feed Ingredients and their Mixtures, FEFANA, have launched the Specialty Feed Ingredients Sustainability project, designed to measure and establish the role of specialty feed ingredients on the environmental impact of livestock production.

The project brings together a consortium of international companies and associations dedicated to reducing the environmental impact of livestock through innovative specialty feed ingredients. It aims to contribute to global activities in the area of the environmental effect of livestock production. The results of the projects will be shared with international stakeholders and with feed chain operators in order to encourage more sustainable livestock production globally.

“The overall objective of this project is to establish the positive role of the use of specialty feed ingredients on the environmental impact of livestock production” said Dider Jans, secretary general of FEFANA. “By setting up a standard approach to measure this role and delivering a manual of nutritional practice, the project will enable specialty feed ingredients to be included in the evaluation of the mitigation measures to reduce the environmental impact of animal production on a global basis.”
