Multinational feed additives producer Nutriad, a leading expert in practical solutions for Mycotoxin Management, sponsored the 10th World Mycotoxin Forum that took place in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. The central theme of this year’s forum was “Taking mycotoxin control to the next level.” The World Mycotoxin Forum is the leading international meeting series on mycotoxins that brings food and feed industry professionals, researchers and government representatives from all over the world together in one renowned event.
“Helping producers worldwide managing the risk of mycotoxin contamination has been the focus of Nutriad for many years. Not only do we invest in people and research, we also make sure to convert the findings of our studies into practical solutions that can be applied in production environments around the world,” stated Nutriad CEO Erik Visser. “We are a proud sponsor of the World Mycotoxin Forum as it focuses on designing strategies that ensure the safety and security of the food and feed supply and as such are aimed at protecting both human and animal health.”
Nutriad presented various scientific posters at the forum, to share key finding in recent studies.
