Avivagen Inc. (VIV:TSX.V) announced in a news release it signed a partnership agreement with CSA Animal Nutrition for it to sell and distribute Avivagen's OxC-beta livestock feed in the United States. CSA also will "coordinate commercial-scale validation research with potential customers."
"OxC-beta™ Livestock is a proprietary product shown to be effective and economic in replacing the antibiotics commonly added to livestock feeds," the company noted.
Based in Ohio, CSA provides nutrition solutions and services for meat, milk and egg producers, feed manufacturers and nutrition consultants. With more than 20 years' experience, the company has numerous relationships in the United States.
The partnership with CSA gives Avivagen access to 20% of the global feed market for poultry, swine and dairy cattle, the release noted.
"We're very excited to be entering into this important relationship that will bring OxC-beta to this crucial market and allow for the sale of OxC-beta within the United States," said Kym Anthony, chairman and interim CEO of Avivagen. "With their extensive technical experience and relationships and ability to access the US livestock and poultry markets, CSA represents a strong partner for Avivagen. The timing is good given the regulatory process in the US is now completed and we look to add sales and distribution networks in new markets to significantly drive our sales."
According to Avivagen, "As an independent firm, CSA has the flexibility and expertise to reach a variety of customers across numerous species, from integrated commercial livestock and poultry production companies and young animal product manufacturers to premix blenders, thereby enhancing the potential adoption and sale of OxC-beta."
