ANIMAL HEALTH AND NUTRITION
Excessive use of antibiotics in animal husbandry is known to promote the selection and development of bacterial strains showing resistance to antibiotics. As a result, the prophylactic use of antibiotics has been banned in Europe and the US and is beginning to be strongly questioned in many other regions of the world. Non-medicinal feed products offer an opportunity to improve animal productivity and health without the negative consequences. Tanovis is producing and marketing a new class of ingredients which offer superior cost/benefit ratios over existing non-medicinal ingredients. These new ingredients also offer improved effectiveness on their own compared to other solutions and very interesting synergies with other natural ingredients. The company aims at capitalizing on its first mover’s advantage and its proprietary know-how on product applications to become the major supplier of this class of ingredients to producers of feed and feed supplements.
