“As the world population grows and demand for food increases, global solutions are needed to feed future generations healthily, while protecting our planet”, says Gaetano Blanda, head of the Animal Nutrition business line of Evonik. “We are on fire to develop such solutions, and to foster the dialogue within the industry."

The Nutrition & Care division of Evonik, to which the Animal Nutrition business line belongs, has made sustainability its leading business principle.

“Ensuring sustainable global food production is the greatest challenge we face. It is no understatement to say it affects each and every one of us. That’s why we’re here to ‘science’ it and we invite you to join us on that journey and subscribe to The Sciencing Podcast today.”
