TACKLING ANTIMICROBIAL RESISTANCE
Antibiotics are an indispensable tool to combat pathogens that pose a serious risk to human and animal health. However, antimicrobial resistance threatens the effectiveness of antibiotics: some strains of bacteria are becoming increasingly desensitized or even immune to these therapies, which is a dangerous evolution.
The prevalence of antimicrobial resistance is reversible, however, and decreases again when antibiotics are taken out of the equation. Animal health through feed additives can help reduce the need for antibiotics in livestock. The science-based solutions from Olus are proven to work in commercial settings to keep animals healthy, support farm profitability, and improve the sustainable production of safe and nutritious foods.
IMPROVING HEALTH AND PERFORMANCE
We aim to enhance the performance of farm animals throughout their lifespan. We do so by developing additives that protect and improve animal health at every stage in life. Optimizing livestock health and resilience is essential to ensure performance and drive overall production efficiency. In this way, we contribute to a more sustainable animal production that is ready for the challenges of the future.
Health problems have a negative impact on animal welfare and yield throughout their lives. Improving the longevity of farm animals through animal feed additives is key to a more sustainable agriculture.
We at Olus are committed to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) formulated by the United Nations in 2015. The SDGs outline 17 goals to make the world a better and more sustainable place by 2030. We aim to contribute to all 17 SDGs, but strive to fulfill three in particular:
End global hunger, achieve secure and improved food, and support sustainable agriculture
Ensuring sustainable consumption and production patterns
Ensure healthy lives for everyone in the world and promote well-being for all, regardless of age, by 2030
