Speciality oils have long gained popularity beyond the food and cosmetics industries. The Hund & Pferd trade show and its industry exhibitors have proved this once again.
OPW Ingredients at Hund & Pferd
The Hund & Pferd trade show was held in Dortmund from 16 to 18 November. For the first time, OPW Ingredients attended the event as a guest. Dog and horse owners flocked to Dortmund in droves to see the imaginative programme prepared by the organisers. More than 240 sales booths spread across 8 halls supplied them with plenty of feed, toys and accessories for their four-legged friends.
Nutritional supplements for dogs, horses and cats
We were especially excited to see which oils have become popular as nutritional supplements and in the widespread “BARF” feeding method. Nearly every booth featured linseed oil, hemp oil and black cumin seed oil. In the dog segment, evening primrose oil and borage oil have gained a large following. They are used by themselves and in high-grade, customised mixtures.
Proteins and fibre in animal feed
Vegetable proteins and oil cakes are already being added to dog, horse and cat food as a source of extra fibre and high-grade protein. The industry is clearly interested in new proteins, oil cakes and oil seeds to use in its individual feed mixtures and pellets.
Only the best – for pets as well as humans
When it comes to animal feed, quality is the top priority for OPW Ingredients. We offer many of our oils in the highest food grade. The animal feed industry enjoys the same quality, traceability and service as all our other customers.
We will be happy to advise you on developing new products and mixtures in the field of proteins, oil cakes and oils. From single oils to individual oil mixtures: we have tailor-made solutions for you and your customers.
