Research and development of new feed additives

All over the world, the market of feed additives is slowing down.
On the one hand, global recession has considerably reduced the funds for Scientific Research (which is almost always carried out by big Pharmaceutical or Chemical Companies). On the other hand, it is increasingly important to ensure the safety of foods and the healty of consumers. This has considerably reduced the number of additives allowed and their use (this applies to older products that have been on the market for much time).

It is important to keep up to date with the worldwide Scientific Research and lead to new products. Before being marketed, these additives have to be tested in Italy, where the situation is very different from the rest of Europe and the rest of the world.

Field testing of new additives.

All new additives, before entering the Italian Zootechnical Market, must be field tested in Italy, where there are a lot od differences in the kind of feed, in the managmente, in the climate and in the kind of traditional Italian production system (the mosto famous are Parma ham and Parmiggiano Reggiano cheese). Special tests must be performed to verify that new supplements are effective and economically feasible to use.

To this end, Cevolani Daniele Team can supply the animals and the facilities required to perform all the tests needed to assess the effectiveness and the economic feasibility of supplements of any kind (if necessary it will to work jointly with University).

Registration of new feed additives.

The registration of a new feed additives is a very expensive process that must comply with directive EC/428/ 2008 (May), which lists the specific measures needed to obtain the authorisations for the use of additives in compliance with directive (EC) 1831/2003.
It also lists the procedures to issue a new authorisation for supplements registered in compliance with directive 70/524/CE.
A re-authorisation is required to assess if the compound (authorised in compliance with directive 70/524/CE and on the market for a long time) can still be considered safe for animals, humans and the environment.
Cevolani Daniele Team, working with prestigious Universities of Veterinary Medicine and Agricultural Sciences, can provide assistance to the Companies that wish to obtain a new authorisation or an expanded authorisation for previously used additives.
