This Irish company has developed a method of turning waste and by-products of olive oil into a premium animal feed. They are seeking research partners to help develop further product lines.
The company was established in 2017 and is already exporting directly to customers in a number of countries including Australia and the United States. They are currently providing Wagyu cattle farmers with a premium olive feed. Each batch of feed created is fully traceable and certifiable. They provide cutting edge scientific based research on nutritional and health benefits not only for the animal, but also for the consumer.
They collect the finest olives after they have been pressed for oil, and transform them into a nutritious feed for wagyu cattle, through a unique and proprietary cooking process.
While the feed is currently being produced for wagyu cattle specifically, there is potential for other types of animal and fish feeds.
