Feed efficiency and animal health through ongoing innovation
A 360° research hub
Each year, the Group commits considerable resources to research, both human and financial. The research programmes aim 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.
CCPA Group R&D
In addition to its research work, it monitors any emerging scientific and technical issues with species veterinarians and engineers.
The CCPA Group has a considerable general research & innovation system with unique tools and special relationships in France and overseas:
EURONUTRITION SAS is Europe’s leading private-sector experimentation centre, specialising in nutrition and livestock farming in monogastrics.
A network of CCPA reference farms validates the innovations under actual farm conditions.
International scientific collaboration
The CCPA Group is involved in large-scale university research projects
Networks of experimental partners in France (ITCF, INRA, Chambre d'Agriculture...) and overseas (Kansas State University, Newcastle University...) help to confirm and conduct experiments on the most promising discoveries.
The Artémis Laboratory, a partner of the CCPA Group is very much involved in the work on the relationships between Nutrition, Health, Immunity and Oxidative and Inflammatory Stress. It assisted with the development of AXISCALE® livestock diagnostics, with a version dedicated to each species. It is also deeply involved in the CCPA Group’s work on phytoexpertise.
An international documentation centre gathers together all of the scientific, technical and economic publications on the animal sector and is a valuable source of data.
