Our mission

We believe we have a key role to play in the production and development of the use of amino acids in feeds.

By implementing leading technologies and production capacities, Ajinomoto Animal Nutrition Europe contributes towards satisfying the increasing demand for amino acids in Europe and around the world. Through our ongoing investment in improving knowledge on animal nutrition, we provide our customers, feed manufacturers and all the actors in the sector with cutting edge technical information which enables them to optimize and develop their feed formulas with the use of amino acids.

In the future, we will therefore continue to demonstrate that amino acids make a significant contribution towards improving technico-economic results in Animal Productions, whilst minimizing the impact on the environment and making better use of the planet’s limited food resources.
