About Animal Nutrition & Health

As the world’s population continues to grow, more and more land and resources are required to feed it. Our innovative offer in Animal Nutrition & Health (ANH) helps meet the rising demand for animal protein and support the sustainable transformation of food systems.

We combine our professional passion and smart science to deliver new approaches to animal health and nutrition that enable the sustainable production of high-quality animal protein while simultaneously reducing emissions and our reliance on natural resources.

With our portfolio of vitamins, performance solutions, and data-driven precision services, we serve the entire animal production value chain and are helping to shape the future of animal farming. Our digestive enzymes increase the efficiency of feed raw material utilization, improving performance while reducing feed costs and environmental impact; our eubiotics help improve animal gut health and contribute to the reduction of antimicrobial resistance; our mycotoxin deactivators help protect farm animals from the harmful toxins that grow on feed; and our methane-reducing feed additive for ruminants helps reduce the greenhouse gas emissions associated with cattle farming. We bring progress to life by helping to make animal protein more sustainable, nutritious, and affordable – for example, via our game-changing algae-based omega-3 oil, Veramaris®.
