Feed efficiency and animal health through ongoing innovation

A 360° research hub

Each year, the Group engages in research with significant resources, both human and financial. The research programmes aim is to improve the competitiveness of the sector, the quality of the products, feed safety, animal well-being and respect for the environment. They also endeavour to simplify the implementation of the techniques and products used in livestock farming.

Through its specialists, the CCPA Group nurtures a close relationship with its clients and business partners in such a way as to come up with innovations that meet farmers’ needs in the field. Nutrition engineers, formulators and veterinarians are also involved in the development of fresh intelligence on the needs of animals and the best use of raw materials, always striving for greater efficiency and safety.
