Share on Stocktwits


The country represents a significant market for feed consumption.

Avivagen Inc. (VIV:TSX.V) announced in a news release it received governmental permission to sell OxC-beta Livestock in Mexico for broiler hens and pigs.

Specifically, the Secretaría de Agricultura y Desarrollo Rural associated with the Mexican General Office for Animal Health, Office of Livestock Services and Certification gave the approval.

It demonstrates the increasing validation of Avivagen's proprietary product and allows the company to sell it in a second, sizable North American market.

To expedite sales in Mexico, Avivagen will collaborate with Meyenberg International Group, a well-established and experienced marketing consulting firm in Guadalajara.

The release highlighted that Mexico's broiler hen and pig market consumes about 16 million tons of feed per year, roughly half of the 35 million tons consumed there in total. This makes Mexico the sixth largest feed consumer in the world, behind China, the U.S., Brazil, Russia and India.

"With our joint venture partnership already established in the U.S. with CSA Animal Nutrition and numerous confirmatory trials currently under way with large potential U.S. customers, we are very excited about the future growth of our company," Avivagen CEO Kym Anthony said in the release.

Avivagen is a "life sciences corporation focused on developing and commercializing products for livestock, companion animal and human applications that, by safely supporting immune function, promote general health and performance."
