After a solid cooperation between Calpis and Orffa which has resulted in the recent obtained final EU approval of the probiotic Calsporin® for broiler chickens, Calpis now also appointed Orffa to be its exclusive European distributor for the marketing and sales of the product.

Calsporin® is a highly concentrated probiotic that contains viable spores of
Bacillus subtilis C-3102. This probiotic is heat stable and approved for use in
broiler chicken. Registration trials for other species are currently running.
Calsporin® is now available in EU, the USA, Brazil and many countries from Asia
(including China, Thailand and Japan etc).

Effect of
Enhanced proliferation of beneficial bacteria reduces negative
effects of pathogens such as Clostridium, Salmonella, E. coli, and Campylobacter
by competitive exclusion and low pH. Trial results show that the stable gut
environment results in a significant improvement of feed conversion ratio
(-2.7%) and average daily gain (+2.7%).
