The project “The feed of the future for fish, pigs, poultry and laying hens” led by Axfoundation and Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences (SLU) brings together researchers and practitioners from across the Swedish food chain. The goal is to set up production with sales of pigs, fish, poultry, and eggs from laying hens that have been fed a resource-efficient feed with low climate impact. The approach with several different production animals takes advantage of SLU's broad expertise and involves researchers across disciplines.
