Chr. Hansen's probiotic growth promoter, GalliPro® is
approved and ready for use for commercial broiler producers all over Europe
since October 4, 2007.
GalliPro® is a probiotic growth promoter with a proven beneficial effect on
the intestinal flora in broilers and is a safe and efficient alternative to
antibiotic growth promoters.
The EU approval will open doors into the European broiler market and
its production of more than 5 billion broilers annually.
“We are extremely content that EU and the European Food Safety
Authority (EFSA) have approved GalliPro as a natural feed additive for the
important European markets,” says Trine Hastrup, director of business
development at Chr. Hansen.
Next generation probioticsGalliPro
already obtained all necessary approvals for the
American markets, and on the most important markets in South America.
“We clearly see this as the next generation probiotics and as an
effective tool for commercial producers.
“Our trials show that the probiotic can improve production parameters
as it leads to better feed utilization, faster growth and a lower mortality
rate,” concludes Hastrup.

a heat-tolerant, in-feed probiotic that has a beneficial effect on the microbial
balance in the gastrointestinal tract of broilers.
Some of its features are:
