Area 3 (‘Society’): Improve on-farm practices to enhance consumer acceptability and address societal challenges associated with animal welfare, product quality and safety, biodiversity and provision of ecosystem services
We have developed an herbal formula based on Ayurveda that can reduce antibiotic and can provide a replacement for GMO soya beans for use in the pig industry. We cultivate the herbs in our center in the Netherlands. This herbal preparation creates a new concept in the traditional pig industry. By adding the herbal preparation in four food lines, we provide a unique Ayurveda pig with a distinct taste with a health label that marketed as a local product with a healthy image.
