Ensure the food future of our growing population at a lower environmental impact is a global challenge.
87% of vegetable proteins consumed are intended for animal feed.
- 37 Millions tonnes of vegetable protein are imported per year by the European Union,
- of which 33 Millions tonnes of soy are destined for animal feed (half of which is poultry).
Europe is 70% dependent on plant source proteins.
The aim of OPTI'PROTEIN is to provide an innovative solution for farmers, to reduce the intake of soybeans in livestock diets, and therefore to limit deforestation and GHG emissions.
For soy-using sectors (poultry, pigs, cattle), our OPTI'PROTEINE solution allows savings of 3% of protein on their feed formulas.
OPTI'PROTEINE: reduces soybean requirements, for the same growth of animals
less than 6% of soybean sources
promotes the use of locally produced proteins
improves the assimilation of less digestible proteins
enhance zoo-technical performances even with formulation reduced of 3% of energy and protein
OPTI'PROTEINE: reduces deforestation because soybean cultivation is responsible for a large part of the deforestation of the planet.
Soybean cultivation is responsible for a large amount much of the deforestation in Brazil.
- 650 000ha per year of deforested areas
OPTI'PROTEINE: reduces GreenHouse Gases
The impact of 33 Millions tonnes of imported soya per year releases 25,4 Millions tonnes equivalent of CO2 per year
46,25 M of Euros per year could be reinjected into the European agricultural sector
