Animal Nutrition

We commit to help farmers meet industry regulations while maintaining the healthier practices for humans and animals.

It is of paramount importance to us that we offer the right raw materials for a productivity-focused solution, allowing responsible animal husbandry without the need of feeding antibiotic growth promoters anymore.

OQ innovates to support the feed industry and thus ultimately the farmers and meat producers by being a leading provider of raw materials for feed additives optimized to meet increasingly stringent market requirements.

OQ's n-butyric acid AF helps the animal nutrition industry in line with the UN’s SDGs to double global agricultural production and incomes for a wider spectrum of producers while promoting healthier practices for both animals and humans. Our solutions allow farmers to maintain high productivity while meeting these important regulations.

WHO also mandates the farmers and the food industry to stop using antibiotics in animal feed to help preserve the effectiveness of antibiotics that are important for human medicine. As such, farmers and meat producers navigate and adapt through the evolving industry standards and consumer demands.

As one of the world's biggest producers of animal-feed-grade (AF) n-butyric acid, we positively contribute to animal well-being and better feed conversion.

Animal feed manufacturers use its salts and esters, called butyrate and butyrin, in their products for feeding calves, pigs, poultry and different aquaculture species.

In order to support the global growth in demand for carboxylic acids, a new production facility is under construction in Oberhausen, Germany. It will increase OQ's carboxylic acids production capacity by more than 30% in 2021.
