Our vitamin additives in animal nutrition: 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.

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!
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.
