Description


CATEGORY SALMON – CHALLENGE 1

How to improve productivity through a natural approach?

ASSOCIATED TECHNOLOGICAL APPLICATION

Development of natural and functional feed additives

TECHNOLOGICAL ALTERNATIVES

Development of probiotics and prebiotics (symbiotics), enzymes, organic acids, phytogenics, hepatoprotectors, immunomodulators, antioxidants and other natural intestinal health improvement products; pure or combined (blended)

DESCRIPTION OF NEED

Use of natural and functional additives in the diet (feed plants) or other points of application on production farms to improve productivity and effectively replace or enhance the use of growth-promoting antibiotics


Purpose


DESCRIPTION OF THE SOLUTION

(Products / services / applications that make up the solution(s))

The technological solution should allow the development and administration of additives in order to promote intestinal health, favouring and enhancing the digestion and absorption of nutrients, the immune response, the enterohepatic function and improving the quality of the meat.

The additives must allow application on an industrial scale or in production farms, be stable throughout the production process which includes mixing, extruding/pelleting, packaging and storage, low leaching rate, in addition to ensuring the performance of the animal in strategic stages of the production cycle.

SOLUTION FUNCTIONALITY AND PERFORMANCE

  • Cost-efficient technological solution.
  • Application in feed plants or in production farms, water or another route of administration.
  • Similar or improved productive performance compared to conventional alternatives.
  • The solution must not generate negative impacts on the environment and be safe for humans.
