ABSTRACT

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.


FULL DESCRIPTION

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.

Partners are required to establish a scientific basis and to produce data which the company can use as a basis to launch into different sectors and industries.


Partner expertise sought:

- Type of partner sought: Research and Development partners to establish a scientific basis for the use of the animal feed and to produce data which the company can use as a basis to launch into different sectors and industries. Skills can vary from animal feed expertise and animal science, to expertise on food science.
- Specific area of activity of the partner: Research and development partners are required to establish a scientific basis and to produce data which the company can use as a basis to launch into different sectors and industries.
Partners could be universities or research institutes with expertise in the animal feed sector or food waste sector. They could also be producers of food waste.
