Royal Agrifirm Group (RAG) – whose motto is “Better Together” – and Evonik have formed a new digital collaboration. Both companies are aiming to ensure global food production is sustainable for the long term.

RAG has chosen Porphyrio® software as integration partner for its PoultryNEXT platform which it offers to its valued customers.

As a first application field this year, PoultryNEXT solution for layers will launch locally in The Netherlands with a ‘headless integration’ – giving greater flexibility on data outputs – with Evonik’s Porphyrio® system. The initial focus is on farm performance monitoring and market benchmarking.

“At RAG we defined a very clear strategy on how digital solutions should support our business and that of our farmers and customers. Within that strategy vision, we look for integration partners that can provide us state-of-the-art solutions,” says RAG’s Johan Heeren, Global digital and data science lead.

“Integration of what’s out there is the way to bring value as fast as possible to the user. The solutions and technology base of Porphyrio® are a solid match within our platform and the PoultryNEXT journey. For this reason we are happy to announce the partnership with Evonik PLF”.

Evonik PLF’s head of Global Business Development Porphyrio®, Kristof Mertens, says: “We are honored and proud that RAG has chosen to collaborate with us on Porphyrio® in support of the digitalization of the poultry production process.”

“RAG is a global player, so the partnership is beginning in our home market and can grow from there. This fits us well, and we are happy that Evonik PLF is further regarded as partner for digital solutions for the poultry businesses.”
