During phase one of the Institute for Feed Education and Research’s sustainability efforts, the team developed a road map and strategic objectives to support the animal food industry’s sustainability efforts. The goal for this project is to advance the role and recognition of animal food as a sustainability solution for our customers (aka farmers and producers). The objectives, available here, resulted in three projects, which include:
With an agreement and funding support from the Animal Nutrition Association of Canada, IFEEDER expanded the scope to now include the U.S. and Canada. IFEEDER initiated projects 1 and 2 above in July 2023. Working with the project’s advisory committee, IFEEDER has prioritized the indicators to include in the evaluation of customer allied industry organizations for project 1 and selected a list of feed additive product categories to use as the basis for assessment and development of a methodology for project 2.
We are still raising funds to support this work. If you would like to be involved and discuss support for this effort, contact us.
