Advanced Feed Package (AFP) customers are feed industries and integrators, mainly in Europe and Asia. They pay an annual contribution from which a combined budget of approximately €1.3 million is available for applied scientific animal feed research at our facilities in Lelystad. AFP customers contribute ideas for research. The actual research program is discussed and determined annually in cooperation with AFP customers who participate in the technical committees of each animal species. With the results we generate new knowledge and insights that are translated into updates of matrix values and animal standards so that customers can annually improve the price-quality ratio of their feeds.
