"As we combine strong market expertise and close customer relationships with superior technologies and production capacities, we are confident that the result will improve animal health and efficiency, leading to increased profitability for the pork producer."
"BASF has helped the European swine industry by developing innovative feed solutions for more efficient and consumer-responsive pork production," said Jonathan Griffin, vice president, Balchem Animal Nutrition & Health. "As we look to 2017, and the changes the US industry faces, we are proud to work closely with BASF to bring new feed management options to pork producers. As the industry continues to work hard to provide a safe and affordable food supply, while also meeting consumer demands, collaboration such as this will be imperative to developing the tools that will help us get there."
