Jefo joint venture (Jefagro Technologies) announced a major expansion of its manufacturing capacity in Canada, according to company's president, Jean Fontaine.

The Canadian manufacturing facility, established in 2000, specializes in the microencapsulation technology of non-medicated feed additives.

Increasing demand for microencapsulated non-medicated feed additives prompted the 4000 square meter expansion of the manufacturing facility in Canada. The new production facility has been operational since early 2013, with the aim of doubling its exports.

Leading products are microencapsulated organic acids, essential oils and vitamins, for poultry, swine and ruminants.


Jefagro Technologies Inc. is HACCP, ISO 22000 and FAMI-Qs certified. The expansion will enable the manufacturing facility to also qualify for GMP certification.

"We have offered innovative non-medicated feed additives for the last 30 years. We are proud of this growing demand and interest of the industry for microencapsulation and for our innovative products," said Fontaine.

Jefo, with its head office located in St. Hyacinthe, Canada, promotes a full range of species-specific microencapsulated products in Canada, the U.S. and in more than 50 other countries.
