Teaming up for world-class research and development

In an ever-changing landscape, Trouw Nutrition's Research & Development (R&D) activities are designed to translate world-class research into practical, economic and sustainable nutritional solutions. Our perspective is expansive, encompassing a broad range of scientific disciplines, with teams that include nutritionists, veterinarians, animal physiologists, microbiologists, immunologists and data and modelling scientists.

Species-specific, value-focused research teams

Our international R&D experts work on teams organised by specific species and disciplines. This includes core teams focused on:

  • Discovery: dedicated to developing and investing in next-generation sustainable products, models and services
  • Ingredients: exploring novel ingredients and additives
  • Species-Focused: research on poultry, ruminants and swine
  • Modelling and Data Science: using data innovations to develop predictive models for optimising nutrition and farm management
  • InnovationLab: combining scientific knowledge and innovative lab capabilities to support and evaluate new ideas and novel products.
  • Global Validation: collaboration with leading universities and regional science partners worldwide to further validate our research; investment in a global network of commercial validation farms to test the real value proposition of products and services and close the gap between scientific knowledge and on-farm practices

Our work, executed to Good Clinical Practice (GCP) standards, is coordinated by a dedicated team of experienced research and farm technicians with essential specialisations that range from feed production and quality control to animal welfare and statistics.

Trouw Nutrition is redefining farming

To adequately feed our rapidly growing world population, we need to redefine how animal products are farmed and develop new technologies to help us move beyond existing solutions. Watch this video to discover some of the exciting innovation happening every day inspired by the remarkable work of Trouw Nutrition’s dedicated research and development team.

Great ideas come from the outside world and from everyone at Trouw Nutrition. It is our art to turn those opportunities into tangible new solutions that positively impact our lives, livelihoods and the planet.
