This winning means a lot for us: it is not only about the proven efficacy of Progres®, it also signifies more general recognition for our way to deal with the current global challenges.

Juhani Vuorenmaa (R & D Director): On a personal level, this was a remarkable acknowledgement of our persistent work for replacing feed antibiotics and for producing more sustainable and safer food.
