At Phileo by Lesaffre we are committed to push the boundaries of animal care to better nourish and protect the planet. We believe that yeast and bacteria with advanced fermentation technologies are the future of animal health through nutrition. They are the answers to the challenges of a global demand for animal protein and greater sustainability. We are on the ground, together, to help define new standards in terms of animal nutrition and build a sustainable agri-food future.
