The EU is the second-largest consumer of feed raw materials in the world, after China. Grain makes up the largest part of feed in the EU, accounting for about 70%, followed by about 25% oil meals. The EU accounts for around 20-25% of all grain used worldwide for feeding. Europe’s Compound Feed Market is projected to grow at a CAGR of 4.3% during the upcoming five years.
The EU’s strongest market segments are pig feed, followed by poultry and cattle. The market is witnessing favorable trends, such as rising demand for high protein diets. Animal disease outbreaks around the world have resulted in increased concern over meat quality and safety and are driving the growth of feed for better animal health and disease protection.

Still, there is of course regular demand for these kinds of commodities depending on price and availability, but they should be non-GMO.
