Feed additive manufacturer Kiotech International plc will change its company name to Anpario plc as of December 1, 2011. 

Anpario plc will continue to trade through its brands Optivite, Kiotechagil and Vitrition, according to the company. These brands will continue to focus on independently driving health, growth and sustainability in agriculture and aquaculture and will be supported by the administrative function of Anpario plc.

“We have made the change as we want to ensure a clear distinction between the name of our holding company to those of our trading companies and product brands, reflecting that our range of products is not limited to those under the Kiotech umbrella,” said CEO David Bullen. “We also feel the new name, created by a combination of ‘An’, the first syllable of animal and ‘pario’ from the Latin to create produce or make, more accurately reflects our growing ambition in the global market for natural animal feed additives.”
