ABOUT AGOLIN

   Who We Are

Founded in 2006, AGOLIN SA develops, produces and markets innovative feed additives, based on botanical compounds, which are effective, innovative, easy to use and safe.

The best-in-class products are successfully introduced in Europe, Asia and the US. Agolin's quality management system (FAMI-QS) ensures safety and guarantees traceability.

AGOLIN SA is member of FEFANA, the Association of European feed additives and premixtures operators.

   Innovation

Innovation and product quality is an essential part of AGOLIN's success. Using the company's extensive scientific network and know-how on plant active ingredients, a new product generation helping to optimize feed intake and gut health prevention for livestock animals was developed.

AGOLIN SA has long experience in active compounds, helping to optimize digestive functions of monogastric and ruminant animals. Agolin first took part in an EU research project in 2010, SMEthane (FP7), a technological platform developing nutritional additives to reduce methane.

SMEthane research confirmed AGOLIN's efficacy to reduce methane. Under the conditions of the assay carried out by INRA in France, AGOLIN RUMINANT significantly reduced the enteric methane production in dairy cows.

The latest R&D project with Agolin SA as a main partner is called RuMeClean. It's sponsored by the Climate Knowhow and Innovation Community (Climate KIC), which is part of the Europen Institute of Technology (EIT). The aim of the project is to ensure the adoption of feed additives with proven potential to reduce methane emissions from ruminants. RuMeClean project is looking to unlock the vast - and currently untapped - potential for methane reduction from enteric fermentation in livestock which is responsible for 9% to 18% of global methane emissions.
