Innovation is key

Trouw Nutrition’s mission of 'Feeding the Future' is based upon the challenge of feeding a global population that is forecast to reach 9 billion people by 2050.

Our ambition is to contribute to meeting the world's rising food needs through responsible farming. We do this by seeking innovative ways to increase the efficiency and nutritional value of our products as well as the productivity of our customers while also reducing the environmental impact of our value chain. 

Trouw Nutrition’s innovation and research and development activities are driven by the belief that we must bring knowledge and technology to the market, faster and more effectively. We do this by translating world-class research and innovation into practical, sustainable nutritional solutions. 

Trouw Nutrition R&D is conducted in five research centres covering ingredients, poultry, ruminants and swine. These research centres are located in the Netherlands, Canada and Spain. Our international research teams encompass a broad range of scientific disciplines, including nutritionists, veterinarians, animal physiologists, microbiologists, immunologists and technical engineers.  

Trouw Nutrition’s success is built on our market-driven approach to research and development, which is guided company-wide by three key focus areas for innovation:
