How we relate to the BJF
At De Heus, we contribute to the availability and accessibility of safe and healthy food worldwide. We do this with the utmost care for the climate, the environment and animal welfare.
We seek to do our part in building a more sustainable future through the Responsible Feeding program, which allows us to create sustainable value throughout the food chain, in addition to supporting producers with our nutritional programs.
Day after day, we work on the continuous optimization of feed conversion: transforming vegetable raw materials into animal proteins in the most efficient way possible. In addition, we continuously and freely share our nutritional knowledge in all the countries in which we operate. In this way, we also support local breeders in their continued professionalization and progress.
