In the midst of healthcare premiums rising and chronic diseases increasing, consumers are adopting a holistic health and self-care approach that starts at prevention and ends at treatment. In this regard, nutrition is the scaffolding for building a healthy lifestyle. Nutrition and health are closely linked in ensuring the well-being and performance of the animal. An increasing demand for animal welfare and antibiotic free animal feed lead to whole new challenges for the animal feed industry. However, diseases, environment, and feed ingredient types, can negatively impact the intestinal microbial balance in poultry, leading to slower growth and reduced performance. The expertise of Evonik in the area of animal nutrition gives us the advantage of extending our portfolio and knowledge to the area of animal health to help you meet those challenges and to support profitability with our healthy nutritional solutions.
