At the beginning of March, we entered into a new scientific partnership with the University of Wageningen (Netherlands).

Heavily involved in sustainable agriculture, this university will be celebrating its 100th anniversary this year, and has built a global reputation for its expertise in the field of Animal Nutrition. Its mission statement: “Exploring nature’s potential to improve our quality of life.”

Teams at the University of Wageningen UR carry out fundamental and applied research in the field of “food production for health and wellbeing”, with the aim of putting their findings to practical use - since, as they state, “we are what we eat”. Among the university’s main areas of research are areas of mutual interest such as food production, nutritional health, climate change, and food security as we aim to feed the 10 billion people living on the planet by 2050.”

Research on Animal Nutrition falls within the scope of this academic framework. An initial partnership between our two organisations was already set up a few years ago to focus on poultry farming; However, this new collaboration will cover all species, including ruminants, pork and poultry. Its main research priorities will involve enhancing feed portions and animal wellbeing

The CMI Roullier is immensely proud to be partnered with this prestigious university, with whom we share a great many common values such as animal wellbeing and the preservation of the environment to improve food production.
