Besides welcoming hundreds of visitors at the Booth 554, Olmix organized a wide range of activities that shed light on the more and more important topic of the healthy food chain, particularly the antibiotic and pesticide-free productions and the innovative solutions offered by Algae to answer this challenges.

With almost 900 exhibitors, VIV Asia, one of the most important international trade shows in Asia, turned out to be a huge success. Held in the Bangkok International Trade & Exhibition Centre in Thailand, from the 15-17th March, the event gathered thousands of professionals that had the chance to attend a wide range of special events and activities focused on the production of pig meat, poultry meat, eggs, fish and dairy, among others.

Later on, Mrs María Ángeles Rodríguez, Olmix’s Technical Service Manager, went on stage at Immunosuppression 2017 (Double Tree by Hilton Sukhumvit Hotel Bangkok) to deliver a speech entitled Sulfated algae polysaccharides to modulate immunity. Mrs Rodríguez took the opportunity to share her thoughts on how to use and adapt immunomodulators in the new era of antibiotic-free production.

“Poultry farms and all supporting professions are seeking to increase the performance of farms, with a new constraint in the game, that is to limit the use of antibiotics. To reach this objective, the use of immunomodulators able to support the natural defenses of the animals and improve the sanitary status of the animals is being evaluated. Specific algae extract (sulfated polysaccharides -OLMIX MSP) are innovative promising candidates, as they can stimulate both natural and acquired immunity. They proved it both in vitro and in field conditions”, she said.
