Optimization for feed hygiene & water quality

Safe & easy handling

Not corrosive

Strongly antimicrobial

In modern pig and poultry nutrition, optimal nutrition with hygienically perfect feed plays a key role.
Inadequate feed hygiene and poor water quality can limit feed intake.
Therefore, an improvement in feed quality/water quality leads to a significant increase in performance and animal health.
