Use of insect derived ingredients in swine production has been a discussion topic for many years. The subject has recently received a fresh boost after European Committee on Plant and Animal Health voted in favor of allowing the use of processed animal proteins use in animal feed. And yet, insect oil is already permitted for use in swine diets. We invite you to hear about the journey of innovation, research and consumer studies to bring insect oil to pork producers in Europe.

On the 17th of June Pig Progress Editor Vincent ter Beek will host a webinar called “Insect oil: a new tool driving sustainable pig production”. Present in the studio will be Graziano Mantovani, Strategic Marketing and Technology Lead Swine for Western Europe at Cargill and Chloé Phan Van Phi, Head of Marketing and Sales at InnovaFeed, producer of premium insect ingredients . In 60 minutes, Chloé and Graziano will answer your questions and guide you through the story using of insect ingredients in animal feed in order to build sustainable and performing value chains.
