grade urea to support the health and the efficient development of poultry, pigs, cattle, horses, aquaculture species and pets. Products are delivered to customers in over 70 countries worldwide, with a major presence in Europe and expanding markets in Latin America, the Middle East and Southeast Asia. The amount of meat produced worldwide quadrupled in the last 50 years. In per capita terms it almost doubled in the same period. Thereby our objective is to contribute feeding the world in a sustainable way. The use of inorganic feed minerals is widespread in the feed strategies for all species. Feed phosphates are marketed under the Bolifor® trade name. Our products contain highly bioavailable macro minerals and offer the state-of-the-art in safety and quality guarantees for the feed chain and the welfare/performance of animals. Yara feed acidifiers, branded under the Bolifor® trade name offer a unique formula of organic acids precisely absorbed onto a special carrier made of diatomaceous earth, itself coated by sorbic acid. This allows specific uses, cost performance and return on investment. Table 1: Typical content of heavy metals in Bolifor MCP Cd
