A proven acid even stronger!

High amount of active ingredients

Strong antimicrobial

Permitted for organic farming

Animal producers suffer from losses caused by bacterial contamination
and associated effects on the livestock, such as lower daily
weight gain and increased mortality.

The strongest bactericidal and bacteriostatic effects among organic
acids have been demonstrated for formic acid.
ADDCON has made the documented effects of formic acid even
stronger – by combining this trusted acid with a registered salt to
enhance the efficacy range.
