Reduction of antibiotic use
An important part of the strategy to fight antibiotics resistance is the reduction of antibiotic use for both humans and animals.
Antibiotics are used globally as preventive and therapeutic medical treatments for animal health. In some parts of the world they are also used as growth promoters to improve production efficiency.
At Nutreco, we believe good health and performance starts with good nutrition.For instance, the first days and weeks of an animal’s life have a permanent impact on its health and performance later on. Intestinal health is equally important.
Nutreco develops specialty diets for young livestock and fish, and functional diets and feed additives that contribute to a healthy gut.
Healthier animals are more productive and need less medication. That is how we contribute to reducing the use of antibiotics.
