NEWFEED (Turn Food Industry By-products into secondary Feedstuffs via Circular-Economy Schemes) project has validated 3 value chains at Mediterranean level:

  • Valorization grape stems (Case study 1, carried out in Spain)
  • Valorization of oranges (Case study 2, carried out in Greece)
  • Valorization of olive cake (Case study 3, carried out in Egypt)

The three by-products have resulted in the development of new feed ingredients, which have been evaluated for their suitability for ruminant and poultry nutrition. To present these promising results to stakeholders from the food industry (including wineries, orange juice and olive oil producers) and end-users of these innovative ingredients (livestock feed manufacturers and livestock farmers), as well as to promote the transfer of the project solutions, Newfeed has scheduled four Demonstration Workshops between March 2024 and June 2025:
