The natural way has always been BIOMIN’s way. Since its inception in 1983, BIOMIN’s nutritional products have led the way in providing natural, non-antibiotic solutions to a host of animal health and nutrition issues.
Today, natural solutions are increasingly replacing the role once played by antibiotic growth promoters, a trend that confirms the vision of BIOMIN’s founder, Erich Erber. In the 1980s, way before natural feed alternatives were embraced by mainstream animal nutrition, Erber decided that probiotics could be applied successfully and effectively in animal production.
Starting with probiotics and minerals, hence the name ‘BIOMIN’, a strong demand for these natural feed additives signaled that the industry even in the early-1980s was ready for a fresh approach to animal nutrition. This foresight towards building a product range based on natural growth promotion has paid off. Today, BIOMIN is widely recognised as a world leader in mycotoxin control and risk management, with equally strong portfolios in acidifiers, probiotics and phytogenic feed additives – all using the ‘natural way’.
Animal nutrition is constantly evolving, simply because the environment in which producers operate in is ever-changing. It is no longer enough to produce good value for today’s business; producers need to understand the trends taking place that will shape the future of animal nutrition, and meet those challenges with innovative, trend-setting solutions.
BIOMIN is dedicated to empowering its customers in the animal nutrition industry – farmers, feed millers, premixers and integrators – with a practical, effective approach to improving animal health, optimizing performance and achieving efficiency in production- the natural way.
In an industry where margins are lean and the risks high, the optimal performance of the animal is no longer an option but is fundamental to the health of the animal, efficiency of the farming business, consumer satisfaction and environmental sustainability.
Through innovative production technologies and advanced, scientific know-how, BIOMIN has pioneered several trend-setting solutions for a range of animal nutrition products, all of which utilise fully natural processes and ingredients. An in-depth understanding of what the customer’s needs and concerns are has enabled BIOMIN to create and deliver solutions in-line with performance and efficiency goals.
The Mycofix® product line tackles mycotoxin problems through a natural, unique mode of action. Poultry gut health is nurtured with PoultryStar®, through the action of beneficial probiotic strains on the gut.
Animal performance is supported with the phytogenic-based Biomin® P.E.P. while feed and water quality can be preserved and improved using the acidifier product Biotronic®.
NutriEconomics, a pioneering concept of BIOMIN, aims to set out the balance that should be achieved in meeting goals in nutrition, economics and environmental sustainability. By combining the disciplines of nutritional and life sciences, together with economic and ecological expertise, NutriEconomics ensures that BIOMIN’s nutritional products are designed to not only help producers achieve cost savings, but also improve feed efficiency and nutrient utilisation for the animal, without upsetting the delicate harmony of the natural environment.
BIOMIN undertakes pioneering R&D work in animal nutrition by focusing on four core areas. These are: healthy animal nutrition; mycotoxin deactivation; natural growth promotion; and functional feed.
Using a highly advanced nutritional and life sciences approach, BIOMIN has not only developed proven solutions for the industry, but also undertaken groundbreaking feed research and design projects at its in-house R&D facilities in Europe (Austria) and Asia (Thailand).
BIOMIN is also active in joint research collaborations with more than 80 research institutes and currently holds more than 70 pending patented applications. For its R&D success, BIOMIN has been awarded several innovation awards, including the Karl Ritter von Ghega-Preis 2004 and the Science2business 2007 award in Austria.
