Novozymes, Adisseo partner to develop animals probiotics

BAGSVAERD, DENMARK: Novozymes A/S and Adisseo SAS said that the companies will partner to develop and market a probiotic for poultry - a product that is expected to launch within the next 12 months. Novozymes will leverage its technology base, proven in enzymes and microbes, and Adisseo brings a unique expertise in amino acids, vitamins, feed enzymes and other feed solutions. Also Novozymes will be responsible for in-vitro screening, development and production, while Adisseo will manage in-vivo testing, marketing and sales, it said.

“The world needs new solutions to feed a growing global population in a sustainable way. We are developing a probiotic that can help farmers meet that need,” said Helle Warrer Poulsen, vice president, animal health & nutrition, Novozymes.

“Innovation is part of Adisseo’s DNA and we are constantly investing, either organically or through strategic partnerships, in new solutions to help our customers optimize livestock performance while reducing environmental impact,” said Jean-Marc Dublanc, CEO, Adisseo.

For decades, antibiotics have been widely used in animal production to help livestock grow, but more and more countries are now banning non-medicinal use as part of strategies to tackle resistance to antibiotic treatments in humans. Consumer-driven curbs have further increased the demand for sustainable alternatives in animal farming.

Probiotics are naturally-occurring live microbes added to feed to improve the gut flora of pigs, poultry and other animals. They improve animal growth and feed utilization and have associated health benefits.

Novozymes and Adisseo’s new product will be based on beneficial bacteria that promote weight gain and limit development of unwanted bacteria in the animal’s digestive tract. By using the product, farmers will see less feed consumption to raise an animal.
