R&D, in the surve of innovation and quality
An on-going drive for innovation leads Neolait to stand out from others and to acquire new markets. A team of R&D engineers enables us to run our research programmes in close collaboration with the other departments of our company and various experts in animal nutrition.
Designing new products
By incorporating the contribution of recent scientific publications into formulation. The development of the product is carried out in the Design Office with feasability tests on the industrial tool. This is followed by zootechnical validation and usability tests on farms.
Research work with the CARGILL Group and INRA (French National Institute for Agricultural Research)
Zootechnical experiments are carried out on reference farms. When specific, experimental equipment with more refined measurements is needed for the tests, experiments are carried out in the CARGILL Research and Innovation Centres and/or at INRA. The results are published and attest to the relevance of the suggested innovations. Patents are regularly filed.
A Design Office and the modelling process
An innovation accelerator: enables the study of mixing powders, their homogeneity and their capacity for compression, in order to improve the industrial process and the zootechnical efficacy of the additives.
High quality products.
They are the result of controlling the different stages between the purchase of the raw materials and the release of the product from the factories. For this purpose, Neolait has put in place:
- Particular specifications based on the suitability of the raw material for the manufacturing process: grain size distribution, reactivity, solubility, density, ORAC, etc.
- Controlled manufacturing processes.
- A stringent quality control upon reception of the raw materials and after the manufacture of the products.
- Stability tests in order to check the efficacy of the additives until eaten by the animal.
Our analytical laboratory
With the latest equipment (ICP, UPLC, fluorimeter, etc.) essential for analysing minerals, undesirable heavy metals, vitamins, organic molecules, etc. Our laboratory is accredited according to NF EN ISO/CEI 17025, certification No. 1-2455, available on www.cofrac.fr
Protecting the environment
Also included in product design. As evidencedby the compostable bags certified by EU standard EN 13432.
