CPL Business Consultants reported on probiotics and phytogenics (plant extracts) used in animal feed. Our client, a European feed additives company, considered expanding its portfolio and sought technical information on probiotics and plant extracts, two of the most rapidly growing additive types. CPL also analysed the markets for the two product types, key players, their products and how the products are positioned.

Probiotics are live bacteria or yeast which are taken orally to improve gut health gut, and prebiotics promote the growth of beneficial gut fauna. Phytogenics have a number of beneficial effects on the growth and performance of animals.
