Partnering opportunity

An Irish company producing animal feed from olive waste seeks scientific research partners to work on a project

Summary

This Irish company has developed a method of turning waste and by-products of olive oil into a premium animal feed. They are seeking research partners to help develop further product lines.

Technical Specification or Expertise Sought

Research and Development partners to establish a scientific basis for the use of the animal feed and to produce data which the company can use as a basis to launch into different sectors and industries. Skills can vary from animal feed expertise and animal science, to expertise on food science.

Partner sought

Research and development partners are required to establish a scientific basis and to produce data which the company can use as a basis to launch into different sectors and industries. Partners could be universities or research institutes with expertise in the animal feed sector or food waste sector. They could also be producers of food waste.

Description

The company was established in 2017 and is already exporting directly to customers in a number of countries including Australia and the United States. They are currently providing Wagyu cattle farmers with a premium olive feed. Each batch of feed created is fully traceable and certifiable. They provide cutting edge scientific based research on nutritional and health benefits not only for the animal, but also for the consumer. They collect the finest olives after they have been pressed for oil, and transform them into a nutritious feed for wagyu cattle, through a unique and proprietary cooking process. While the feed is currently being produced for wagyu cattle specifically, there is potential for other types of animal and fish feeds. Partners are required to establish a scientific basis and to produce data which the company can use as a basis to launch into different sectors and industries.

How it works

  • Tell us about yourself
  • We’ll discuss with you
  • We put the right partners in touch

EEN help you find the right partner, rather than you going it alone.

Our role is to review and collate the most suitable submissions, and then send them to the client who posted the opportunity. We consult with you, and the client, to make the process professional and easy.

These are live opportunities. Your registration of interest on the site is just like a professional approach to a business at a networking event. To stand the best chance of success, make your submission really sing. Sell why the client who posted the opportunity should work with you. Excite them. Ask questions. Try and avoid copy and pasting words from elsewhere.

Once the client has chosen their partner, we'll introduce them over email and keep in touch with both parties to see how it's going. Sometimes things progress quickly. Sometimes because of changing priorities for either party, things progress slowly, but you never know - your next big business break could start right here.
