Improved animal nutrition, more safely and sustainably
By 2050, global food production will virtually double, with an exponential increase in the demand for affordable meat products. DuPont is helping to meet this challenge, from in-feed animal nutrition to biosecurity solutions.
As pioneers in the development of feed additives, DuPont has developed many successful in-feed solutions that enable both a higher quality meat product and a significant improvement in animal nutrition and health. Many of the solutions offered by Danisco Animal Nutrition have a positive effect on the environment, while others contribute to uniform weight gain, reduce dependence on antibiotics and increase the animal’s ability to absorb nutritional elements from their feed.
Excluding disease organisms from an animal’s environment is the most effective form of protection, especially those farmed using modern production techniques. DuPont provides world-leading biosecurity products developed specifically for disease prevention and control in livestock production facilities; farms, fish farms and storage facilities.
Pet food manufacturers also benefit from our expertise in antioxidants, antimicrobials, emulsifiers, enzymes and probiotic cultures, with a range of solutions to help maintain shelf life freshness; improve cost and processing efficiency, and optimize texture, flavor and nutrition.
DuPont acquired Danisco in 2011, further strengthening its global leadership role in nutrition, health and industrial biosciences.
At DuPont, we develop industrial biotechnology solutions with a commitment to uncompromised product performance in markets such as animal nutrition, food, detergents, textiles, carpets, personal care and biofuels. We also maintain a commitment to continuous innovation, ever improving our biobased products and processes, turning what used to be known as "alternative" materials into mainstream ones.
