Financing and key indicators

Animalia is financed mainly by funding for technical measures raised through sales tax.

This tax is regulated by law and is paid by farmers as a charge per kilo at slaughter and on the initial sale of eggs. The sales tax is paid to three different funds; for cattle, pigs and sheep/lambs, for chickens and turkeys, and for eggs.

Along with the money from sales tax, Animalia has income from sales of products and services and also applies for support to research and development projects from public sources of project financing such as the Research Council of Norway, and research funding via the Agricultural Agreement, the research fund for agricultural products, Innovation Norway and the EU.
