Balchem Corporation Gives Back

Balchem Corporation became a Gold-level sponsor of IFEEDER (Institute for Feed Education and Research) with a recent $50,000 donation. The IFEEDER organization supports feed industry research and education projects focused on meeting the challenges of a sustainable feed and food production. As a member of both the feed and food industries, Balchem is committed to improving efficiency and productivity throughout the food chain. 


Representatives from Balchem, a global leader in choline, encapsulated ingredients and chelated minerals for animal nutrition saw the need for one clear, concise voice for the industry to positively and accurately communicate information. They believe IFEEDER should be recognized as that voice.

"IFEEDER will help fill a void by providing timely, quality information, and there has been a void for far too long," said Jonathan Griffin,  Global Director of Balchem's ruminant business.

Translation of industry research into a compelling message is one of IFEEDER's core objectives and is also an important factor for why science-based companies donate.

"As an industry, we are focused on the science. As scientists, we are good at improving the science, but not so good at conveying the story. We have a great story, we just need help telling it," said Scott Sorrell, Balchem's  Director of Global Marketing.

IFEEDER was created in 2009 to address the enormous challenges our U.S. food and feed production industries will face in the next 40 years and beyond, as the world's population grows by almost 2.5 billion people.

IFEEDER recently contributed $100,000 toward PEDv research and also sponsored the 2013 Council for Agricultural Science and Technology report, "Animal Feed vs. Human Food: Challenges in Sustaining Animal Agriculture Toward 2050."
