Research Network

At Hankkija Finnish Feed Innovations, we believe in the network approach to Research & Development. During the past 20 years, Suomen Rehu and Hankkja have developed a strong network of research collaborators, consisting of universities, research organizations, and companies.

Combining companies or individuals who have specialist knowledge and experience together with a common goal brings results quickly and more cost effectively. Our network has been expanding from Europe to the U.S., Mexico, Latin America, South-East Asia, i.a.

In Finland we collaborate closely with the independent research company – Alimetrics Ltd., who have specialist expertise in gastrointestinal health. They carry out tailored biotechnical research for small and large industries around the world.
