Elanco and Tonisity International form partnership focused on gut enhancing swine products




Elanco Animal Health Incorporated and Tonisity International Limited have entered into a distribution and promotion agreement in respect of Tonisity's novel, gut enhancing porcine products, Tonisity Px™ and Tonisity PxW™.


Under the terms of the agreement, Elanco will act as exclusive distributor of Tonisity's swine products in Brazil, Belgium, Denmark, France, Germany, Norway, Portugal, Spain, Sweden, and the Netherlands.


As an exclusive distributor, Elanco will be responsible for marketing, promotion and distribution and sale of the products in these markets. The specific transition timelines to a distribution via Elanco in early 2023 are currently being planned.


Both Elanco and Tonisity have agreed to explore collaboration opportunities in other markets, when appropriate. The addition of Tonisity's swine products to Elanco's portfolio fits perfectly with Elanco's strategy of promoting the intestinal health of animals, improving their overall health and leading to a more efficient production as well as providing its customers an innovative product portfolio.


Tonsity's Tonisity Px™ is a patented isotonic protein drink that directly feeds the intestinal cells of livestock, such as piglets. This accelerates and increases the absorption of all nutrients into the body of the animal.


Tonisity Px™ is administered to piglets in the first week of life and around weaning and is voluntarily consumed even by newborn piglets. The result is higher weight gain, lower mortality and less need for medications for these animals – all producing a high return on investment for producers.


In studies examining pre-weaning morality, Tonisity Px™ reduced pre-weaning mortality by 20% which amounts to an extra pig for every three litters. Administration of Tonisity Px™ also resulted in higher weaning weights and 3kg extra weight at finisher stage, with an improved feed conversion rate.
