Nutriad, global leader in gut health and mycotoxin solutions, showcased its program for responsible use of antibiotics and efficient mycotoxin management at the Indo Livestock 2017, 12th Livestock, Feed, Dairy, and Fisheries Industry Show in Indonesia. As the Indonesian government has indicated its intent to restrict the use of antibiotics in livestock production, producers are keen to understand alternative strategies Nutriad has developed through years of research.
Dr. Glenn Alfred S. Ferriol, Area Manager for Indonesia, Malaysia & Philippines, stated: “It’s becoming more exciting for Nutriad as there has been an overwhelming interest from the farmers, feed mills and integrators to know more about Nutriad’s alternative to antibiotics. Two years ago, Nutriad launched its target-release precisely delivered butyrate—Adimix Precision—in Indonesia, giving way to an effective and consistent alternative to AGPs in the market with and extra benefit on food safety programs specifically against Salmonella. Adimix Precision has also been demonstrated to be effective in helping pigs recover quickly from the negative effect of Porcine Epidemic Diarrhea (PED).”
Nutriad also showcased the complete range of mycotoxin deactivators and its supporting services. The multination feed additives company offers its complete portfolio of mycotoxin management products including Unike, Toxy-Nil Plus, Toxy-Nil, Adsorbate and Mold-Nil in Indonesia. With strong local distributor contacts, Nutriad can reach the Indonesian market with proven solutions for mycotoxin risk management, which include a mycotoxin rapid test system and mobile app Mycoman.
BK Chew, APAC Director, concluded: “Indonesia has enjoyed a growth of 300% in feed production over the last 15 years. This growth is staggering and at Nutriad, we have continuously invested in Indonesia over the years in manpower and distribution. Feedback from industry professionals at the Indolivestock showed how our collaborative approach to the market is appreciated and valued. With the implementation of the strict regulation in AGP use by end of the year, Nutriad is well positioned to work alongside producers to define solutions for today’s and tomorrow’s challenges on the pressure of AGP use.”
