Addcon takes over Formi distribution

The Addcon Group, manufacturer of silage products and preservatives as well as feed additives, is delighted to announce that the company has taken over distribution of the feed supplement "Formi" from BASF effective from the beginning of this year.

Addcon has been manufacturing Formi since 2002 at its own production site at Porsgrunn, Norway, under contract for BASF AG. Addcon has now also taken over the product's worldwide distribution. The raw material, formic acid, will continue to be supplied by BASF.

About Formi
The brand name "Formi" represents a growth-promoting acid supplement whose properties are based on potassium diformate. Formi was approved in the European Union in 2001 as the first non-antibiotic animal nutrition product with growth-promoting properties. Formi is thus an approved and established alternative to feed antibiotics, ensuring safe, efficient pig farming. The product is also applied in aquaculture.
