  • With an estimated 60% increase in global demand for high quality protein such as milk, meat and eggs by 2050, the question about Europe’s role in helping address that demand cannot remain unanswered. The challenge is multifaceted: we must produce quantities of livestock food products through systems that are resource-efficient, climate-friendly, socially responsible, and economically viable for both European farmers and consumers.

  • At the end of the consultation period started on 21 October, 2015 and after careful examination of all formal proposals, Elanco announced it will move forward with its proposal to transition a set of core capabilities to Elanco’s regional headquarters in Basel, and its facilities in St. Aubin will be closed. In total, 27 employees will be offered the opportunity to transfer to new laboratories in Basel. In addition, at least five new positions will be created in Basel and offered to qualified employees from St. Aubin on a priority basis. For all other employees, the company has developed a robust social plan. As of today, Elanco has identified appropriate locations for a vast majority of the animals which are affected by the closure of the site in St. Aubin, including adoption by employee pet owners.

  • A new survey commissioned by Elanco’s ENOUGH Movement and conducted by SWG on 2,000 people across Italy, Germany, France and UK, shows that – based on their own general perception on food habits and behaviours as well as of their countrymen – about 50% of the interviewees say they cannot follow a sufficiently varied nutritional diet. In particular, fish, beef and pork are among foods often absent from people’s diet.
