TURN FOOD INTO FEED

Upgrading food leftlovers to valuable feed ingredients

Welcome to SAN, the digital platform focused on studies and researches on Sustainable Animal Nutrition (SAN).

Here you can find the main projects developed by an international research team aimed at identifying alternative forms for animal nutrition, which can have less impact on the environment and promote the well-being of animals and men who eat.

 The concept of sustainability in animal nutrition is meant to reduce both feed and food wastes. Livestock production systems have received growing attention in recent years since they have clearly been identified as a deep environmental impact factor. Moreover, cost of animal feed represents up to 85% of the farm gate value of several farm animals. From this perspective, sustainability in livestock productivity cannot be achieved without using sustainable animal diets

In fact, livestock systems today and in the future have to take into account not only economic development, feed security and safety, but also politically-sensitive issues such as animal welfare and environmental sustainability. Accordingly, the main aim of the project is to develop a “sustainable animal nutrition” concept.
