EU is getting one step closer to the use of PAPs in animal feed

A proposal to allow processed agricultural products (PAPs) or animal by-products from poultry in pig feed and from pigs in poultry feed was welcomed by the European Standing Committee on Plants, Animals, Food and Feed (SCoPAFF). In this article, we look at the strategy and some of the obstacles you may face.

Marine microalgae in the biofilm for sustainable animal nutrition

The French biotech company Inalve produces marine microalgae in biofilm for feed manufacturers and aquaculture farmers. According to the company’s CEO, the entire ocean depends on the food that microalgae provide, and their health benefits run across the food chain and offer tremendous potential.

Marine microalgae provide an animal-like protein with a proven immunomodulatory effect, says Christophe Vasseur, CEO and co-founder of Inalve.
