Austrian members of FEFANA, the European Union’s feed additives and premixtures association, have formed their own FEFANA national group to represent Austrian feed interests to the government and industry partners. According to a press release from FEFANA, the organization was already very active in Austria, but an increasing number of meetings with national authorities and related events demanded a more formal, national representation.

The founding members of the new Austrian group, called a “national platform” under FEFANA’s organizational structure, are Biomin GmbH, Delacon Biotechnik GmbH, DSM Nutritional Products, Lactosan GmbH & Co. KG and Lohmann Animal Health. Thorsten Guthke will serve as manager of FEFANA Austria.
