INNOPOULTRY. The poultry food chain: tackling old problems with innovative approaches

INNOPOULTRY. The poultry food chain: tackling old problems with innovative approaches

The aim of this project is to test and to promote solutions for the poultry industry in Italy, Poland and Spain in the area of safety risks for public health. Innovative ingredients (insects and fruit pomace) and new feeding strategies (probiotics) will be used to allow sustainable productions, to reduce pathogens and antibiotic resistance in the gastrointestinal tract resulting in an improvement of animal welfare and of the safety and the quality of poultry meat. Breeders and consumers will have a central role to define the applicability and the acceptability of such approaches, respectively. The project will improve innovativeness for multiple stakeholders through engagement in learning processes, participation in supply chains, and benefiting from diffusion of technologies and knowledge developed in this project.
