Novus to be diamond sponsor at European Symposium on Poultry Nutrition




Novus International, Inc. will be a diamond sponsor of the 22nd European Symposium on Poultry Nutrition (ESPN). Novus will also share innovations in enzymes and pigments during the scientific conference in Gdansk, Poland, June 10-13.


"For this symposium, we will present a study from one of our latest scientific trials demonstrating the benefits of CIBENZA® EP150 feed enzyme on broiler gut health," said Silvia Peris, head of technical services in Europe and the Middle East for Novus.


"CIBENZA is a unique feed additive preparation consisting of a combination protease and the spores of its producing organism, Bacillus Licheniformis. It is the first combination of its kind in the European Union, authorised as a zootechnical feed additive (4d12) for supporting broiler and pullet performance. This product highlights Novus's innovation capacity."


Novus will also present studies on an innovative source of natural yellow carotenoids showing similar properties to synthetic pigments for broiler skin pigmentation, and a study conducted in collaboration with the Institute of Agrifood Research and Technology (IRTA) demonstrating that quails can act as a model for egg yolk colour prediction in laying hens.


More than 1,000 participants are expected to attend this year's conference.


"ESPN is not only a European-focused symposium anymore; it has become a global one. Participants are coming from all over the world, which is very attractive for poultry experts. We are excited to share these findings with the scientific world," said Peris.
