Nutriad draws presidential interest at Indo Livestock

Nutriad 1Multinational feed additives producer Nutriad has participated in the three-days 2018 Indo Livestock exposition & forum in Jakarta (Indonesia) earlier this month and showed a range of its feed additives solutions to the visitors

Nutriad was visited by the President of Indonesia, Joko Widodo, who showed great interest in the application of specialty feed additives as part of a strategy to reduce, and eliminate the use of antibiotic growth promoters.

Erik Visser, CEO of Nutriad, commented, “Whether one believes that agricultural use of antibiotics in livestock production has fostered an environment that spawns antibiotic-resistant superbugs or that excessive prescribing of antibiotics in human medicine has dealt us the same fate, our industry must take steps to mitigate the potential of a looming healthcare crisis. Our continuous research on gut health and joint approach with customers and universities around the world, confirms Nutriad’s commitment to the industry.”

For decades Nutriad has been supporting producers towards achieving a responsible use of antibiotics. In the Asian market, its line of Digestive Performance products such as Sanacore® EN, Adimix®Precision, Adimix®Easy and Apex 5 is available, that allows producers to formulate a diet that makes responsible use of antibiotics possible. Furthermore, the company’s complete practical approach to Mycotoxin Risk Management (Toxy-Nil®; Toxy-Nil®Plus and Unike®) supports producers in finding alternatives for AGP-s.

Visser further added, “We see a growing interest in Asian markets to learn more about alternatives for AGP-s. Not only driven by government regulations and pressure from consumer groups but as evidenced by the visit of high-level Indonesian officials with our technical staff, a genuine interest to introduce novel solutions into the market.”

Dr Glenn Alfred S Ferriol, area manager of Nutriad for Indonesia, Malaysia and Philippines, noted, “A Review of Gut Health Challenges in a Non-AGP Environment” where he focused on the importance of a Precision Delivered Sodium Butyrate as an alternative to the use of AGPs and one the influence of Mycotoxins on gut health and vaccination efficacy.
