and development of the use of amino acids in feeds. By implementing leading technologies and production capacities, AEL contributes towards satisfying the increasing demand for amino acids around the world. Through our ongoing investment in improving knowledge on animal nutrition, we provide our customers, feed manufacturers and all the actors in the sector with cutting edge technical information. This enables them to optimize and develop their feed formulas with significant contribution towards improving technico-economic results in animal productions, whilst minimizing the impact on the environment and making better use of the planet’s limited food resources.

high cost. Alltech has been a pioneer in redefining trace mineral nutrition through research and innovation. Modern management of mineral nutrition can be carried out by the inclusion of organic trace minerals at significantly lower levels than inorganics, while improving performance, delivering a cost-effective return and alleviating environmental concerns. We call this innovation Total Replacement Technology™ (TRT), developed in response to the evolution of modern production and the mineral requirements that are now demanded by the animal.

Azelis Animal Nutrition Azelis Animal Nutrition has supplied the Phytobiotics “Plexomin” range of chelated minerals in the UK and Ireland for a number of years. As one of the leading suppliers of glycinates in Europe, Phytobiotics have a top quality product range that is characterised by their snowball technology that ensures consistent particle size of the Plexomin product leading to a better flowability and hence a more practical product in mill that allows

BASF plc

Sodium molybdate – We supply a European product from stock.

BASF is the world’s leading chemical company. For animal nutrition BASF offers the feed and petfood industries, one of the broadest ranges of feed additives. The BASF product portfolio includes a range of water soluble and fat soluble vitamins. These are offered in a variety of physical forms to match customer requirements. Vitamins are organic substances which are necessary for maintaining all body functions, including growth, health, fertility and performance. As a rule the animals body cannot synthesise these natural biologically active substances itself, which is why they must be supplied via the feed. Product safety and efficacy are at the centre of all BASF activities. Using our extensive research facilities, we constantly develop and improve our vitamin product range and formulations to meet the needs of the animal feed industry.

Cobalt and Selenium Premixes – Our cobalt 5% premix is 3b304 compliant. Selenium premixes are available as 1% and 4.5% Se and are all produced in the EU. Iodine Premix – We can supply a 10% grade. Please ask for more details. Cobalt Carbonate – Our 52% grade meets current 3b303 EU regulation requirements. Cobalt acetate is also available. Sodium Butyrate – We can supply European produced pure and 70% coated grades. We are also regular suppliers of BHT feed grade, selenium compounds and butyric acid. We can supply in any quantity from a 25kg bag to a 20MT load or direct FCL. Please contact Lawrence Green for prices and further information.
