18/06/2013: Feed additive boost in Brazil; UN calls for global drought action; Defra minister backs plant breeding campaign

The Brazilian animal feed additives market is growing quickly thanks to a burgeoning population with higher disposable incomes and a taste for pork, beef and poultry. This trend will continue as the development of new additives add value to customers.

The market earned revenues of $1.30 billion in 2012 and it is  estimated to reach $1.59 billion in 2018. The research covers enzymes, amino acids, vitamins, mycotoxin adsorbents, prebiotics and probiotics. 

Ban Ki-moon, United Nations secretary-general has called for a global response to drought and a shift from crisis management to drought planning and resilience.

Currently, over 11.4 million people are facing food insecurity.

Lord de Mauley, Defra science minister, has given the UK government’s formal backing to an industry-led campaign to highlight the critical role of plant breeding innovation and quality seed.

The Plant Variety Rights (PVR) campaign, launched jointly by BSPB and AIC earlier this year, focuses on the importance of PVR as a unique form of intellectual property, which helps to protect, stimulate and reward progress in crop improvement.
