STEYREGG, Austria, February 22, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
The world's first and only proven natural botanical animal feed additive is approved for use by the EU.
The EU announced Feb 15 the registration of FRESTA® F, manufactured by DELACON BIOTECHNIK, as an approved zootechnical feed additive. FRESTA® F was approved after an exacting safety, quality and efficacy evaluation by the European Food Safety Authority, the European Union Reference Laboratory, the EU Commission and 27 EU Member States.
FRESTA® F is the first and only phytogenic (plant derived, natural, botanical) product in the world approved by the European Union as a zootechnical additive.
Consumers, farmers and governments increasingly demand proven, safe and effective products in the human food chain. Phytogenic products are a natural alternative to the synthetic products that consumers want to avoid.
Feed additives are a €12 billion global market. Phytogenic companies are rapidly expanding into this market, investing in new facilities and creating new jobs across Europe.
DELACON pioneered phytogenic feed additives and is the largest producer and distributor in the world. We are the global leaders in phytogenic innovation, knowledge and applications. We work with nature to discover new combinations of phytogenic substances, to improve animal nutritional efficiency, and to reduce synthetic additives in the human food chain.
