Least cost formulation in aquafeed
Adifo N.V.
The general principles of least cost formulation for aquafeed are the same as in agrifeed. The nutritionist manages his set of ingredients by setting the measured and calculated nutrient values. Then, taking into account the ingredient prices and the availability per plant, the software creates a least cost formula that fulfils the ingredient and nutritional requirements of the diet.

Aquafeed formulation is a fast growing business, yet relatively new.  Growing world population, pressure on the use of marine ingredients, price volatility of raw materials, better availability of nutritional knowledge and difficulties in the production of aqua diet make aqua diet formulation a challenging business.  A professional and state of the art least cost formulation software, like BESTMIX® (a product by software specialist Adifo) is essential to develop sustainable, cost effective and nutritionally complete feeds.
