SWITZERLAND - DSM Nutritional Products is going to hold a seminar during VIV Europe 2010 on 'Maximise your protein – Take the road of innovation with RONOZYME® ProAct'.

The seminar will be held on 20 April 2010 and will consist of four speakers, Professor Dr Sergio Vieira from Universidade Federal do Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil; Stéphanie Klein from Sanders-Glon Group, France; Dr Katrine Pontoppidan from Novozymes, Denmark and Dr Fidelis Fru from DSM Nutritional Products, Switzerland.

Before, during and after the economic slow-down, sustainable cost savings remain the order of the day for the poultry industry, which needs to operate in profitable conditions. DSM Nutritional Products is well aware of this and is convinced that its recent feed enzyme innovation Ronozyme ProAct comes just in time for European customers.

Professor Vieira will be discussing the protein digestibility in poultry varying from substrate to substrate and within substrates which can be improved by the addition of an effective exogenous protease.

Mrs Klein will cover the view of the broiler industry and the expectations of a large player when it comes to protein digestibility and opportunities for improvement.

Dr Pontoppidan will trace how feed enzymes are developed by the feed enzyme Alliance of Novozymes and DSM Nutritional Products, with Ronozyme ProAct as an example.

Dr Fru will discuss the later part of product development. When a new enzyme is developed it is essential that the enzyme discovered will also work well in the animal feed application. Understanding the customers' requirements and establishing the relevant and realistic applications in real life becomes one of the most important parts of the entire development process.
