As the Asean market is preparing itself for increased regulation on the usage of antibiotics in animal feed, key decision makers of the poultry industry gathered at the Broiler Feed Conferences held in Bangkok (Augusts 16/17) and Jakarta August 21/22). Multinational feed additives producer Nutriad once again presented novel solutions for broiler producers and supported attendants with technical information.
Dr. Daniel Ramirez, Business Development Manager Digestive Performance, presented a paper on ‘Responsible Use of Antibiotics and the Role of Functional Feed Additives after the AGP Ban’. “There is a need for a target-released, precision delivered butyrate, like ADIMIX PRECISION, not only for gut support, clostridium control and gut healing, but especially for the extra benefit on the control of food safety associated challenges such as Salmonella & Campylobacter compared to other alternative products”, Dr. Ramirez emphasized.
Nutriad highlighted APEX 5, which contains a selection of botanicals, utilizing the quorum sensing technology as a basal program. APEX 5 can be used independently or in combination with sodium butyrate.
Dr. Ramirez further stated: “The Asia pacific region is increasingly looking for natural solutions to improve animal performance and health. The Nutriad portfolio, combined with improved management practices, can support the reduction of AGP usage, as we have seen in other markets across the world.”
Chew Boon Kee, Regional Director Asia Pacific, was pleased with the increased attendance in both events in Bangkok and Jakarta. The company considers it an effective way to directly interact with industry professionals and to show the market that Nutriad is ready to provide proven solutions when usage of AGP’s will be no longer allowed or restricted. “That is why we sponsor these high-quality events,” Chew concluded.
