The business of animal health is bigger than animals
It’s also about food security, epidemic control, biodiversity, urbanization and so much more. That's why at Merial we're always attuned to the impact our work can have on the wider world.
Why We Engage
We see how population growth, urbanization, and related trends are driving increased demand for safe, affordable, and plentiful animal-based proteins.
- Yet, the global food industry loses ~20% yearly to animal disease1
- 1.5 billion people worldwide depend on livestock for food &/or income2
- 3 out of 4 emerging infectious diseases affecting humans are of animal origin3
On these issues and more, Merial is helping make a difference.
