The Impact

Development & adoption

Development and adoption of at least three new alternative feed sources from winery, orange juice and olive oil industry by-products.


Adoption of three circular economy approaches in livestock systems by valorizing food by-products (winery, orange juice & olive oil) as alternative feed for livestock (dairy cattle and sheep & broiler chicken) to produce new products (dairy & meat) for human consumption.


Valorization of three local crops by-products (grape stem, orange peel and olive cake) for animal feed by adapting three valorization strategies to the local industry and livestock, but replicable to Mediterranean area.

Cost Reduction

Reduction of the cost of livestock production by three sustainable and economic alternative feeds and improvement of the quality of final products in compliance with the husbandry nutritional requirements and food and feed safety.
