Bel makes milk low-methane, working across its entire Slovakian dairy chain with partner dsm-firmenich
22 May 2023
A decisive step towards low-methane milk has been taken by Bel Group in one of its major dairy basins. Having successfully completely a series of pilot tests for Bovaer®, a revolutionary feed additive by dsm-firmenich that reduces livestock methane emissions, Bel is now starting to roll out this pioneering solution to the majority of its dairy producers in Slovakia. They supply around 70 million liters of milk per year to make the Group’s renowned Babybel® cheeses distributed in Central Europe and the United Kingdom. Implementing Bovaer® will cut methane emissions for each farm by approximately 1/4 and would represent an overall yearly 400-ton methane reduction.
