As VWFI, both Volac and Wilmar aim to set the agenda for the responsible and ethical sourcing of raw materials and we believe that feed fats play an important part in delivering sustainable livestock productivity improvements.
Volac Wilmar sources palm oil products from Wilmar who have an industry-leading No Deforestation, No Peat, No Exploitation (NDPE) policy.
The implementation of this policy can be tracked via Wilmar's ‘Sustainability Dashboard’ — a microsite dedicated to reporting on Wilmar's NDPE endeavour.
Feed Fats: Megalac®
Megalac® is one of Volac’s most important innovations and represents the culmination of an intensive research and development process over many years.
It is a product that ingeniously optimises the unique dietary attributes of fatty acids and makes them available to the cow, without upsetting the balance that exists in the rumen.
The Megalac® range of feed fats has been developed to offer different fatty acid profiles, from which farmers can select a particular product. This makes it easier for them to meet specific needs in their herds — whether they want to increase milk yield, improve fertility or increase butter fat or protein content of their milk.
Our product-based Megalac® website provides extensive animal management guidance, nutrition advice and technical support related to feed fat use.
