Our vitamin additives in animal nutrition: Microvit®

Microvit®

Vitamins are organic substances that are indispensable to the normal metabolic processes of animal organisms. Given that the nutritional profile of conventional feed formulation often lacks the recommended dosages, vitamins are generally added to feed in the form of a premix.

It is essential that the right amount is dosed for different species at different growth phases to ensure proper animal growth, reproduction and immune defense. Furthermore, it is also critical to ensure the production of quality poultry and livestock muscle and meat.

Adisseo has developped  a method of selection in terms of quality and food safety, aiming at guaranteeing the quality of Microvit® products. This method is called MCS: Microvit Certification System.

Benefits

By using Microvit®, premixers and feed producers can achieve several benefits essential to maintaining livestock health and performance, while being constantly assured of its reliability:

1. Quality & Performance

Microvit® delivers a high and consistent level of quality and bioavailability to animals, ensuring that the highest level of efficacy is achieved even through vitamins dosed in trace quantities, thereby delivering maximum value for money.

2. Safety & Traceability

The Microvit® brand represents a guarantee backed by its strong certification standards (Microvit® Certification System – MCS). It offers our customers safety assurance and peace of mind, regardless of the product’s origin. Every Microvit® delivery pays for a good night’s sleep!

3. Convenience

Microvit® is the only global brand offering a comprehensive solution for all direct and indirect users of straight vitamins, and does not compete with any existing or potential premix partners. It simplifies our customers’ supply chain and procurement processes by sourcing from one place, thereby enabling them to focus on the value creation of their core feed or premix activities.

With an increasingly volatile market environment and uncertainty regarding the quality and traceability of vitamins, the key factor for successful feed and premix players in the future lies in strategic sourcing with the right supplier, which not only provides a competitively sourced supply stream, but also helps to mitigate huge risks associated with product quality, traceability and safety.

Thanks to Adisseo’s expertise in vitamins and its wide range of services, Microvit® will continue to be a leading global supplier and benchmark for vitamin products. Adisseo currently manufactures Microvit® A (vitamin A) in France only and formulates Microvit® E50 (vitamin E) in France and China, while providing a comprehensive range of high-quality Microvit® Portfolio (B vitamins).

Microvit® A has a distinct orange-yellow colour associated with retinyl acetate. It provides high-quality, stable and versatile formulations for all livestock species – poultry, swine, dairy cows, pets, and more. It is a competitive ethoxyquin-free product.

Microvit® E (dl-alpha-tocopherol acetate) provides high-quality, stable and versatile formulations with guaranteed effectiveness for all livestock species.

Microvit® Portfolio is a full range of certified vitamins catering to the nutritional needs of the animal feed industry. Customers benefit from a comprehensive solution to obtain a source of constant vitamins of superior quality and a reliable supply which complies with the very strictest traceability criteria.
