Coppens Diervoeding guarantees superior and reliable feed, in combination with innovative and expert advice. We contribute to healthy and more robust animals as well as sustainable, forward-looking pig and poultry farming.
Coppens Diervoeding is involved in the insect sector because insects are part of the natural diet of chickens. Given the growing world population, predicted global protein shortages, and the trend toward local production, we view the use of insects in feed as an innovative enterprise. Coppens has tested the products and sees the added value of insects in antibiotics and food for young animals. Using insects also takes advantage of their ability to convert low-grade material into animal protein. The ultimate goal is to use less soy and other commodities, which are suitable for human food, in animal feed. In our vision for the future, insects will therefore be an important ingredient in high quality animal feed.
