Finase® EC approved for the South African feed market

Finase® EC, a bacterial 6-phytase supplied by AB Vista, has gained official registration in South Africa. This registration follows the successful launch of Finase® EC across the EU earlier this year.

The South African registration of Finase® EC means it will be available alongside AB Vista’s intrinsically thermostable xylanase enzyme, Econase® XT, which is already approved in the region.  By using Finase® EC, customers can benefit from improved phosphate and other phytate-bound nutrient availability, as well as a reduced impact on the environment from phosphate excretion.

Trevor Hartley of Optivite, the distributor for Finase® EC and Econase® XT in South Africa, commented: “We are pleased to be able to offer both of these superior products to the market. Customers are always keen to find ways of improving animal productivity in an ecological and economical way; AB Vista’s products tick these boxes, so we are sure they will be very well-received by the market here.”

Ari Kiviniemi, Global Sales Director for AB Vista, said: “This latest development for Finase® EC will allow poultry producers in South Africa to capitalise on the unique qualities the phytase has to offer. We are now in our sixth year and are well on the way to ensuring our products are not only the best in the market, but are also available worldwide.”
