AB Vista supporting sustainability at poultry symposium

AB Vista is again supporting the Poultry Science Symposium as a silver sponsor for 2014, with this year’s meeting running under the title of ‘Sustainable poultry production in Europe’.

Organised by the UK branch of the World's Poultry Science Association (WPSA), the Poultry Science Symposium 2014 will take place between the 8th and 10th of September in Chester (UK).

"AB Vista understands the importance of sustainability to the future of European poultry production, so we're delighted to be able to support the Poultry Science Symposium for another year," says Michael Noonan, AB Vista's business manager for the UK.

"It is also the year in which AB Vista's revolutionary Quantum Blue phytase has been approved for use throughout Europe. This has opened up the opportunity for poultry producers to regain some of the estimated €4-6 per tonne of feed manufactured that is currently being lost due to the anti-nutrient effects of phytate.

"Quantum Blue was developed specifically to maximise phytate destruction through superdosing, resulting in an average four point improvement in feed efficiency. This has a significant role to play in improving the long-term sustainability of European poultry production."

Key members of the AB Vista technical and research teams will be attending the meeting.
