Bayer, Dr. Eckel to launch "Latibon® Plus ME" acidifier in Indonesia
Press release

Bayer Animal Health and Dr. Eckel announced the completed registration of the multifunctional acidifier "Latibon® Plus ME" in Indonesia on June 28, 2013 and will be made available to customers in Indonesia as seventh country in Asia within 2013.


After two years of intensive registration effort of the teams of both companies, the registration license was issued by Ministry of Agriculture which approved Latibon® Plus ME for pigs, duck, chicken, and cattle. Additional claims for shrimp and fish feed were registered with the Ministry of Marine Affairs and Fisheries and are estimated to obtain approval in Indonesia in 2014.


The effective Latibon® Plus ME concept combines a well proven standardised acidifier with added properties. The modular base is a balanced mixture of organic and inorganic acids and their salts which allows for a marked reduction of the buffering capacity in the feed.


"Improved hygiene optimised buffering capacity and a better digestibility - these are key performances factors supporting healthy growth in young animals. Furthermore Latibon® Plus ME improves the intestinal flora and protects the animals against diarrhoea", says Dr. Bernhard Eckel, Vice President at Dr. Eckel.


Further registrations for this exceptional and widely trusted product are currently underway in China and Malaysia.
