About innovation

Nutreco's innovation and R&D activities are driven by the belief that we must bring knowledge and technology to the market, faster and more effectively. And not only in markets with developed industrialised countries, but also in developing countries.

We do this by translating world-class research and innovation into practical, sustainable nutritional solutions.

Nutreco spends over 15% of its operational profit on R&D and innovation. We have 11 research centres. In animal nutrition, Trouw Nutrition Research Centres are based in the Netherlands, Spain and Canada. In aquafeed, Skretting ARC is based in Norway, with other units in Italy, Spain, Egypt, Chile, Japan and China. 

To further validate and test our research results in practice, Nutreco has field research farms in many key markets.

Collaboration and partnerships are a pre-requisite for speeding up the overall innovation development cycle. Nutreco has over 60 partnerships with universities and research institutes worldwide.
