Innovation sits at the very heart of Nutreco’s business and culture. Next to in-house R&D, we actively invest in open innovation to help ‘Feeding the Future’. Nutreco NuFrontiers is Nutreco’s strategic innovation and investment team. We invest both in start-ups developing new technologies that are strategically relevant to Nutreco and its divisions Trouw Nutrition and Skretting, and joint-ventures and partnerships to create ‘moonshot projects’ that address major bottlenecks in the value chain.

More than a venture capital or investment fund, we’re an active developer of tomorrow’s new feed and food businesses, supporting and providing them with industry-leading expertise and resource. Our expertise in animal nutrition can help fast-track growth; quickly bring products to market; and address major bottlenecks, or inefficiencies in farming, such as social and environmental sustainability, animal welfare and health.

Some of the key themes we are interested in:

  • animal nutrition across both livestock and aquaculture farming
  • animal health, especially health-oriented functional nutrition
  • digital solutions that drive precision feeding and farming
  • sustainable farming systems
  • alternative proteins for feed and food
