More than an investment fund, NuFrontiers is an active developer of tomorrow’s new feed and food businesses, supporting them with industry-leading expertise and resources. Our expertise can help fast-track growth; quickly bring products to market; and address major bottlenecks and inefficiencies, such as social and environmental sustainability, animal welfare and health.

How NuFrontiers operates 

NuFrontiers invests in new technologies that are strategically relevant to Nutreco and its business lines Skretting and Trouw Nutrition. This can be in the form of investments in start-ups and scale-ups or in innovative technology partnerships that address major bottlenecks in our value chain.

We aim to fuel Trouw Nutrition’s and Skretting’s innovation pipeline, as well as to identify new opportunities in the protein value chain.
