Chr. Hansen to launch PorcBoost™ at VIV Asia




Chr. Hansen will hold its Asian launch for PorcBoost™-a new microbial feed-additive program designed to support all stages of swine production-at VIV Asia 2015 on March 11-13 in Bangkok.


The company will also showcase its poultry product portfolio, as well as new studies confirming the significant performance and efficiency benefits of probiotics in commercial poultry production.


"Asia is the world's largest pork producer, with the fastest-growing poultry industry in the world," said Gorm Madsen, Chr. Hansen's director of commercial development. "Together with our partners, we are pleased to offer our Asian customers a full range of products and services that support efficient, high-volume production of pork and poultry, while reducing reliance on antibiotics."


Keeping pigs 'fit and happy'


The PorcBoost™ program combines Chr. Hansen's industry-leading probiotics with useful tools and services that can be used from farrow to finish.


"Our complete probiotic range has proven performance benefits throughout the entire growth cycle," said Technical Product Manager Jens Joergensen. "By combining these products with valuable tools and services, the PorcBoost™ program aims to keep pigs fit and happy, while allowing our customers to maximise and measure their returns".


According to Joergensen, PorcBoost™ probiotics boost performance in sows, piglets and grower-finishers by stabilizing the gut flora, while increasing digestive enzyme activity.


"In sows, our dual-strain probiotics have been shown to improve feed conversion and reproductive rates, while grower-finishers benefit from improved weight gain, feed efficiency and digestive function," he said.


Enhanced poultry performance


Chr. Hansen's innovative probiotics also improve growth performance and feed conversion in poultry, recent studies confirm.


"We regularly test our products as both alternatives and supplements to antibiotics in commercial conditions," said Poultry Scientific Manager Anée Berg Kehlet. "Our latest research shows meaningful, sustainable benefits of probiotics in poultry production, including higher weight gain, improved feed efficiency and enhanced intestinal performance".


In Asia, Chr. Hansen's poultry probiotic portfolio includes GalliPro® and BioPlus 2B.
