Our impact

We need to increase food quality and security, while improving animal health and welfare, and reducing the ecological footprint of animal farming.


And there is only one way to do this right ... with science.

Only well thought-through and evidence-based solutions can establish a truly sustainable and secure food supply.

How we’re Sciencing the Global Food Challenge

The United Nations projects the world population will reach a staggering 9.7 billion people by 2050 – over 25 percent more than in 2020. With a growing population comes a growing demand for food, particularly protein.

At the same time, we are grappling with multiple global threats, including climate change, biodiversity loss and antimicrobial resistance. Meat, dairy, and seafood production is already a resource-intensive process – so how do we produce more protein while reducing our environmental impact?

Evonik Animal Nutrition provides its customers with Next Generation Solutions that target the most pressing challenges in the animal protein industry. Our solutions help improve feed conversion ratios, enhance animal health, and reduce the environmental footprint of animal feed and farming. And we measure and publish the environmental footprint of almost all our solutions through in-house lifecycle analyses (LCAs) to ensure that our products and services help customers meet their own sustainability goals.
