INTRODUCTION AVESPRODUCT

avesproduct assortiment

Avesproduct has specialised in the development and production of specialist birdfoods. Based on fundamental knowledge and research, Avesproduct’s high quality birdfoods have acquired an excellent name. Due to many years of intensive contacts with birdbreeders, Zoological Gardens and scientific Institutions, Avesproduct is able to give extensive, practical and objective advice. Through excellent service and professional guidance Avesproduct’s birdfoods have been used with great success since 1976.

Many questions are often raised about bird nutrition. The concept of the energy value, the desired nutritional value of bird diets, the differences between animal and plant protein, the function of vitamin E, the use of vitamin and mineral supplements are only a few examples. To our knowledge, only few professional nutritionists are working in the field of bird nutrition. Nutritional research published in Scientific and Avicultural Magazines are rather hindered by a shortage of professionally educated nutritionist with an interest in birds and bird nutrition than by financial funds. In our view both areas of expertise should go hand in hand. Avesproduct has published several books and numerous articles in the Dutch language. It is a challenge to translate parts into English and have them published on Internet.

J.P. Holsheimer, our senior research nutritionist, has a lifetime experience as a scientific researcher in avian nutrition. He is an invited member of The New York Academy of Sciences and of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. The honours were presented to him because of his publications in internationally recognised scientific magazines.
