PMI Nutritional Additives and Nuscience Group have formed a strategic partnership focused on identifying and developing feed technology products for the U.S. livestock industry.

This collaboration will bring a wealth of nutritional knowledge in conjunction with high-quality feed components such as pure and multi-activated medium-chain fatty acids, which aren’t readily available in the U.S. marketplace today.

“Through this partnership, we’ll be exceptionally well positioned to provide novel functional feed components. By understanding modes of action and combining the components in an accurate way, this collaboration will help deliver optimized performance by supporting nutrient utilization and gut health in poultry, swine, dairy and cattle,” said Tim Makens, general manager of PMI Nutritional Additives.

“We are very pleased with this partnership for the U.S. market. One of the major challenges of the industry today is health, and we are interested in the role that nutrition plays in supporting animal health,” said Katrien Deschepper, chief operating officer of Nuscience Group. “Based on its developed medium-chain fatty acids, Nuscience functional ingredients have proven to be a valuable solution to support overall animal health and immunity. Joining forces with PMI Nutritional Additives and its extensive experience in U.S. animal nutrition will allow us to develop effective nutritional solutions that address animal health for the U.S. market.”

Collectively, Nuscience and PMI Nutritional Additives bring together international knowledge and decades of experience in animal nutrition, strong research capabilities, a deep understanding of the feed industry and a wide distribution network. Specifically made products for the U.S. market, which incorporate these functional components, will be introduced exclusively by PMI Nutritional Additives to feed nutritionists, manufacturers and integrators in the U.S., who need to deliver value, efficacy and strong results through their livestock feed.
