The Global Feed LCA Institute (GFLI) is the product of an international consortium that was formed to establish a “global gold standard” for calculating the life-cycle analysis (LCA) of feed ingredients. 

In December 2018, the first public version of the GFLI (Global Feed LCA Institute) Database was made available. This first version of the database consists of about 1,500 datasets of the main feed ingredients used in Europe and in other parts of the world. The objective of the newly founded non-profit organisation is to become the global reference for Feed LCA data and aims at reaching 15.000 datasets through new Feed LCA Data generation projects from other world regions and related feed material sectors. The newly founded GFLI legal entity was set up in September 2019 as a non-profit organisation under US law, by the founding members, FEFAC, AFIA (US), ANAC (Canada), NSF (Norway) and IFIF (International Feed Industry Federation).

Compound Feed manufacturers, feed material and feed additive producers, value chain partners, academic and research institutions as well as interested NGO and LCA consultancies can obtain access to the GFLI LCA database via end user licence agreements.
