BASF and Adifo Software will launch a new digital solution for the animal agriculture value chain by integrating sustainability analytics powered by BASF's AgBalance® Livestock project into Adifo's BESTMIX® feed formulation software.

BASF's sustainability analytics enable the industry to dynamically assess the life cycle environmental impacts to make animal protein production more sustainable. Adifo's BESTMIX software allows nutritionists and formulators to manage and optimise nutrition and cost attributes of feed and ration formulation. By integrating BASF's sustainability analytics into BESTMIX, customers along the animal agriculture value chain will be able to strategically manage and optimise feed formulation based on nutrition and cost while taking environmental sustainability aspects into account.

"This partnership will significantly advance feed formulation," said Daniela Calleri, vice president of business management at BASF Animal Nutrition. "While cost is still relevant, sustainability has become an important driver for the animal protein sector. This joint solution by BASF and Adifo enables customers to improve their formulations for the least environmental impact and offers substantial opportunities for the value chain."

The BASF digital sustainability analytics combine nearly twenty years of life cycle sustainability work in the feed and animal protein industry with leading science-based digitalisation capabilities.

BASF and Adifo Software are currently finalising functionality through customer pilot projects and target to launch this solution to the market in early 2021.
