Pork is the most widely eaten meat in the world accounting for over 36% of the world’s meat intake. The global pork meat market size was valued at $236,112.7 million in 2019 and is projected to reach $257,874.5 million by 2027. Global consumption of pork is projected to increase by over 11.6% from 2017 to 2027


  • Disease, which leads to antibiotic overuse and high mortality
  • Inefficient weight gain and poor feed conversion ratios – which lead to costly feed expenses
  • Foul odors, including ammonia and hydrogen sulfide that harm the animals and attract insects
  • Wastewater treatment challenges – high organic loads, foul odors, and sludge volume, costing farms time and money



As antibiotics are phased out and highly regulated in most markets, farmers are looking for alternatives to support pig health and improve production efficiency in sows, weaned pigs, and finishing hogs. Probiotics have been used in combination with other feed additive products for many years, however there has not been conclusive acceptance that existing probiotic technologies can perform as well as antibiotics.

Current probiotics have little activity in the small intestine, most take 4-6 hours to begin working, by then they have passed through the gut

Timing is key – our activation technology delivers probiotic bacteria with over 95% of the cells activated and ready to begin growing as soon as they reach the upper small intestine

What does activation and growth in the small intestine mean?

  • Small intestine is where most nutrient digestion and absorption occurs
  • Most immune system function is in the small intestine



Dormant Bacillus spores:

  • Bacillus spore bacteria require specific nutrients and conditions to activate
  • If conditions are met, spores take 4-6 hours to activate
  • If not activated, most pass through the gut in dormant form
  • Requires large amounts of bacteria to have an impact, most probiotics are included at high levels in the feed



Activated Bacillus spores:

  • We provide the exact conditions for each strain to activate
  • Over 95% of our spores are committed to activate and grow
  • Our probiotics are awake and growing as soon as they reach the optimal conditions of the small intestine
  • Efficiency of delivery to pigs in the drinking water, higher consumption rates
  • Supporting gut function and immune health with activated probiotic bacteria



Our probiotic technologies and farm solutions provide pork producers with the tools they need to support healthy pigs and healthy farms
