Twilmij is participating in the ERDF project ''Hatchery of the Future'' with the development of ''early feeding'' solutions for chicks. The objective of this project is to come up with a fully integrated and sustainable hatchery solution, which responds to the current public requirements. Pas Reform, a specialist in technical development of hatchery technologies, is the project leader for ''Hatchery of the Future''.
For this project, Twilmij works on the development of a dietary supplement for day-old chicks, which can already be administered in the hatchers on hatchery level. Unique to this composition is that it offers a two-in-one solution by using hydrogel technology. Since 2006, Twilmij has been building up the necessary "early feeding" experience with their AfterEggFood product.
