Animal Nutrition and Feed Ingredients

Overview Industry Overview:

Let Ropella assist you in your search for finding highly specialized and hard to reach executives in the animal feed ingredients industry. We have worldwide partnerships with industry executives and are well-known for recruiting high-level executives who are tailored to your specific requirements. Ropella understands the challenges you face in trying to find the perfect fit for those ‘needle in the haystack’ positions.

In many ways, the animal nutrition and feed industry is even larger than the human nutrition industry: chickens outnumber us globally 3-to-1, and that’s not taking other livestock and household pets into consideration. Nutrition is the key factor in ensuring the health and productivity of these animals, and the Feed Industry of America states that securing raw ingredients is the most important component in the processes that go into creating these food supplies.

There are nearly 1000 agricultural ingredients and co-products and many more which come from pharmaceutical and industrial sources. As with many other industries, there is an increased awareness of environmental impact, sustainability, and organic formulations. Opportunities abound to improve nutrition for pets and livestock, and to develop supplements that correct diet deficiencies, address health concerns, and enhance fertility and meat quality.
