Avivagen Inc. reported it achieved its first sale of OxC-beta™ Livestock in Brazil, the world's third largest livestock feed market.

In a news release, Avivagen Inc. (VIV:TSX.V; VIVXF:OTCQB), which develops and commercializes immune-system improving products for livestock, companion animal and human applications, announced that "it has recorded its first sale of OxC-beta™ Livestock in Brazil."

The firm indicated that the purchase totaling 125 kg was made by its distribution partner Look Chemicals. Avivagen noted that the sale represents an introductory order as it commences with the roll out of the product for use in the Brazilian market.

Avivagen's CEO Kym Anthony commented, "We are very excited to announce our first order of OxC-beta™ Livestock in Brazil, one of the largest and most important livestock feed markets in the world...Similar to our experience with our initial orders with UNAHCO in the Philippines and Industrias Melder in Mexico, we are confident that demand for OxC-beta™ Livestock will grow once this initial order is fully utilized."

The firm explained that Brazil is the third largest livestock feed market in the world. The country consumes about 69 million tons of livestock feed annually and is also a key exporter to regions including Europe that have enacted regulations banning the use of antibiotics in livestock feed.

The company mentioned that its OxC-beta™ technology is derived from its β-carotene and other carotenoid discoveries. The firm noted that these compounds that support immune function are what give many fruits and vegetables their bright colors. The company's OxC-beta™ Livestock is currently approved for use in nine markets worldwide including Australia, Brazil, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, the Philippines, Taiwan, Thailand and the U.S.
