Danisco Targets Leaner Meat Production

The global trend towards leaner meat has increased the pressure on pig and poultry producers, according to Danisco Animal Nutrition.

But it claims that firms can remain competitive by harnessing the potential of the latest developments in livestock nutrition.

The quest for healthier lifestyles is bringing about major changes in terms of what consumers look for when buying meat," said global marketing director Andrea Barletta.

"The global trend towards leaner meat is reflected in what retailers are demanding from meat processors and, in turn, what they require from poultry and pig producers.

"Advances in genetics have already played a key role in helping producers to reduce costs by substantially enhancing the animal's ability to efficiently utilise feed and generate a higher percentage of lean meat. However, this is only part of the story, as nutrition also plays a key role."
