Anpario is an international producer and distributor of high performance natural feed additives for animal health, hygiene and nutrition. Anpario’s expertise is focused on intestinal health and nutrition and utilising this understanding to improve animal performance and producer profitability.
Anpario supplies its customers with quality assured products manufactured in the United Kingdom and has an established global sales and distribution network in over 70 countries, which includes a number of wholly owned subsidiaries in the key markets around the world.
Anpario is listed on the London Stock Exchange’s AIM market and was built up from a combination of three UK companies: Meriden Animal Health, Kiotechagil and Optivite. Since these acquisitions, Anpario has made gradual internal changes to combine and standardise systems and processes, to form one company under the Anpario brand.
These changes have brought together cutting-edge product technologies and the broadest range of speciality feed additive products in the market, including pioneering products such as ‘Orego-Stim’ and ‘Salkil’. In addition to the company’s gut health and nutritional expertise, Anpario is uniquely able to apply special active ingredients to a carrier matrix system. Anpario’s primary objective is to deliver greater outputs from the limited global resources in an efficient and sustainable way. The benefits of our products have not only demonstrated their value to the animals that have been fed our feed additives, but also to the progeny that they produce.
Our expertise has been developed over many years and we now work with key research sites and universities across the world when developing our product technology. The portfolio of innovative products is divided into four categories: Eubiotics, Feed Security, Feed Quality and Nutritional. Products are packaged in bespoke high quality packs and colour coded by category for ease of identification by our customers.
Anpario’s mission is to add value throughout the lives of animals. We combine knowledge, science and nature to provide products that enhance the natural development of livestock animals to maximise the producers’ profitability.
Leading Eubiotics – Orego-Stim
Orego-Stim is a natural product which contains oregano essential oil and is available as as powder of liquid for inclusion into feed or water. Orego-Stim uses proprietary extraction techniques and high quality standards to ensure a high quality and consistent product.
Orego-Stim works in the animals gut to improve overall health and has a wide range of beneficial effects in all species.
Orego-Stim Production Ensures Product Consistency
It is well known that the essential oils from oregano plants across the world can vary widely in the content and concentration of the active components. This variation can depend on location, soil type, climate and altitude amongst other things. Several studies have been carried out examining this issue with the same conclusions, that using oil from different sources, at different times of year, would give very different finished products.
Anpario take quality very seriously and testing starts before plants are harvested. Samples are taken from the crop to determine the levels of the main active ingredients, carvacrol and thymol, and at exactly the right time, the plants are harvested and brought to the distillery for oil extraction by steam distillation.
Once extracted, the oil is analysed again to confirm the carvacrol and thymol levels fall within our strict specification limits, along with over 35 other compounds found in oregano oil. The final product undergoes further testing to ensure the product meets specifications for release, ensuring uniformity of every batch.
Blending & Manufacture
Significant research and expertise underpin the manufacture of Orego-Stim, whether that be in powder or liquid form.
Specially selected mineral carriers ensure a free-flowing and homogenous finished powder product. This is vital to any manufacturing process to allow even dispersion in the final feed. Orego-Stim Powder is then packed into foil bags and sealed to maintain the freshness over the two years’ shelf life.
The selection of emulsifiers, other components and oregano oil provide a liquid formulation that mixes easily in water without separation.
How Orego-Stim Can Help Your Business
Orego-Stim promotes gut health throughout all the critical stages of growth, maintaining a healthy appetite and supporting the animal through periods of stress. Maintaining good gut health helps the animal to achieve its genetic potential, which in turn maximises profitability.
Anpario’s mineral carriers are unique in the market in allowing quick delivery of liquid active ingredients to be fed to the animal in a dry, easy to handle, mixable form. This form makes it easier for the feed-miller to work with and also for the animal to benefit from the active ingredients quickly and efficiently. The inert nature of the carrier, which cannot be digested, may also help in prolonging the effect of the actives throughout the digestive tract of the target animal. The carrier can also act as a matrix on which probiotic organisms may flourish, further encouraging the optimum balance of microflora in the gastro-intestinal tract (GIT).
