Dutch company Agrifirm and Swedish company Lantm√§nnen Lantbruk are set to expand their research collaboration by working together with Felleskj√łpet Forutvikling, a subsidiary of the three Norwegian Felleskj√łpet co-operatives. The companies aim to strengthen their leading positions in the area of research into new products and feed concepts for ruminants, poultry and swine.

Innovating faster

On May 7, all parties involved signed a partnership agreement at N√∂tcenter Viken, the Lantm√§nnen research farm in Sweden. By joining forces and working together with experts and universities, Agrifirm, Lantm√§nnen and Felleskj√łpet hope to be able to innovate quicker and more efficiently.

A rapidly-changing environment in which responsible materials, animal welfare and animal health become increasingly important urges the need for quicker development of new products and feed strategies for the customer.

Expanding research facilities

By entering into this partnership, the three agricultural cooperatives will make use of each other’s research facilities.

Research for dairy cattle will be carried out on Lantm√§nnen‚Äôs research farm Viken. Laverdonk, the research farm of Agrifirm, will be deployed for research into swine, poultry and calves. The research facilities of Felleskj√łpet Forutvikling will be available for common research projects. Both Agrifirm and Lantm√§nnen as well as Felleskj√łpet will operate their own research programs in addition to joint research projects.

Feed for the future

Although Agrifirm, Lantm√§nnen and Felleskj√łpet have excellent relations with various universities, research facilities, suppliers and other partners, they see added value in a close cooperation between the three innovative companies.

Consumers demand safe and healthy food, animal feeds are an important part of the food chain. Furthermore, it is increasingly important to produce in a responsible and sustainable manner. The research collaboration between the three companies will contribute to these challenges.
