At Trouw Nutrition, we take pride in our research facility, which is unparalleled in its size, quality, capacity, expertise and experience in the poultry sector. The Poultry Research Centre has the capacity to house more than 14,000 birds in seven different types of barns dedicated to broilers, rearing pullets and laying hens and includes a hatchery unit and slaughter line to complete the broiler cycle.

In addition to the animal facilities we also operate a research feed plant to produce the feed needed for the poultry trials. Our goal is to meet scientific standards for proper trial design when developing customer-focused innovation projects.
