The global life science company Bioiberica is gearing up to commemorate its 25th year of scientific excellence, ingredient innovation and sustainable progress in the global animal health and nutrition sector. The company started its year-long anniversary celebrations at International Production & Processing Expo (IPPE), the world’s largest annual poultry and egg, meat and animal food industry event in the United States, celebrated between January 30th and February 1th at Atlanta.
Through customer and trade events, including IPPE, plus Interzoo (7-10 May) and Eurotier (12-15 November) in Germany, Bioiberica will acknowledge 25 years of impactful advancements in the animal health arena – highlighting how its technical expertise and significant contributions to scientific research have pushed the boundaries of progress.
Victor Beneito, Animal Nutrition Business Unit Director at Bioiberica, exposes: “We take immense pride in the contributions we’ve made to support our partners in animal health and nutrition. Through substantial investments in research, ingredient developments and strategic collaborations with some of the world’s leading brands, we go beyond providing nutritional support to unlock functional health benefits in livestock, companion animals and aquaculture.”
“In the last five years alone, we’ve published more than 50 scientific papers, abstracts and presentations, and collaborated with 30-plus research centers worldwide. One highlight has been the discovery of bioactive peptides in our Palbio proteins – which promote intestinal cell proliferation and positively modulate microbiome composition; explaining the direct impact this product has on animal health and performance,” he added.
Sustainability, in the top of the agenda
To the members of the company, its flagship solutions, Palbio hydrolyzed proteins and Nucleoforce free nucleotides, both demonstrate a commitment to animal wellness beyond nutrition. Palbio is a source of high-quality protein that supports intestinal and immune health in young livestock; improving production parameters. Nucleoforce targets immunity and intestinal health by delivering a high concentration of nucleotides, specifically balanced and designed for each animal species.
Bioiberica also offers functional pet food ingredients for joint health, immunity and skin health – Mobilee, Collavant n2, CSbioactive, Nuceloforce Pets and Dermial Vet.
As Bioiberica looks to the future of animal nutrition and wider world of life sciences, sustainability is top of the agenda. Demonstrating its pledge to innovate within the realms of One Health – a philosophy that seeks to advance health while protecting the world we live in – Bioiberica has set a series of ambitious targets. They include reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 30% before 2030 and achieving climate neutrality by 2050; initiatives that will be supported by the company’s circular economy model and ability to monitor (and adjust) its sustainability KPIs.
Xavier Garcia, Director of Animal Health and Plant Health Business Units at Bioiberica, says: “We’re really excited about the future of animal health and our part in it. Aside from the aspiring sustainability goals we’ve set ourselves; we continue to invest heavily in research and product development to break down barriers to progress and elevate our offering to the market. We already have some interesting scientific studies underway that are set to complete this year, and plans to expand our Nucleoforce™ portfolio and pet food line – so watch this space for updates!”
