The Spanish company said the agreements with the two local partners will enable Bioiberica to compete in a complex and demanding market, while expanding its presence in the Asia-Pacific region.

Aska Animal Health Co – Bioiberica’s official distributor in Japan – will initially import the company’s Nucleoforce aquaculture and livestock feed target range.

Nucleoforce consists of free nucleotides and active precursors obtained from yeast extracts. The company claims that various studies have shown that these products help strengthen the immune and digestive systems of young animals that are undergoing rapid maturation of their immune and intestinal systems.

As part of the deal, Asuka will assist BioIberica in managing regulatory processes and local R&D trials. Shintoa Corporation oversees promotion and sales of ingredients. Longer term, the trio also have plans to introduce the Barcelona-based company’s Parbio series (a source of hydrolyzed protein) to the Japanese market. I’m here.

“Japan is one of the major markets for livestock and aquaculture feed ingredient sales in both Asia and the world.” Joan Bassa, Head of Bioiberica’s Heparin Science, Animal Nutrition and Phytosanitary Business Unit, said: “However, it is a complex market to trade in, so working with a local partner was very important.Aska and Shintoa have long established strong positions in Japan and have a deep knowledge of the Japanese regulatory environment. with strong commercial capabilities and is considered an important supplier of feed ingredients to the animal nutrition market. ”na
