BASF SE continues to focus on maintaining its position in the global animal nutrition market through geographic expansion in high-growth markets. The company focuses on the manufacturing of performance products along with an R&D program to develop new solutions for the feed acidulants market for different types of acids such as propionic acid, formic acid, and fumaric acid. It focuses on expanding its product portfolio through expansions and collaborations that will help fulfill the demand from the feed industry in the coming years. For instance, in 2018, BASF and arc-net entered into a collaboration to support the animal production value chain in meeting the demand for feed products. BASF’s calculation tool, AgBalance Livestock, considers the life cycle impact of all inputs and outputs of animal protein production—from feedstuffs and feed production, to animal farming and manure management, to slaughter. Earlier in 2018, BASF launched a low-corrosive organic acid, Lupro-Cid NA in Japan. Lupro-Cid NA enables high-quality silage preparation under challenging conditions. Thus, it would help dairy farmers protect feed quality and improve safety during silage making.
