Megatrends

The world’s population continues to grow – and the challenge of securing enough healthy food is growing with it. As meat, fish, eggs and dairy products represent a large share of global needs, the science of animal nutrition has a key role to play in addressing the food challenge. The future depends on innovative, sustainable and efficient feed concepts.

POPULATION GROWTH

The UN expects the world population to grow to more than 9 billion by the year 2050. Scientific data show that a nation’s demand for meat and other forms of animal pro-tein increases with affluence.

SHORTAGE OF RESOURCES

Across industries, sustainable technologies and methods are needed to avert shortages of clean water and other resources. Nowhere is this challenge more pressing than in the food industry.
