Phytobiotics Opens Office in North America

Pytobiotics Feed Additives, a global leader in research, development and sales of quality feed additives for livestock and pets, with an emphasis in swine and poultry, has established Phytobiotics North America LLC with headquarters in Wentzville, MO.

“We are now well established in many parts of the world and have moved from a footprint of five countries in 2000 to more than 70 countries in 2013,” says Hermann Roth, president and CEO of Phytobiotics. “As the regulatory process for our products in the United States is reaching the final approval stage, it was time to establish a business in North America.”

Bruce King, managing partner North America, will be responsible for building up the business and recruiting a team to serve the North American market. King grew up on a swine farm in northern Illinois, graduated with a bachelor’s of science degree from the University of Illinois and has worked in the U.S. and global pork and poultry industries for more than 25 years.

Phtobiotics and its partners make up one of the fastest-growing companies in animal health globally and offer feed additives and consultative services focused on intestinal health, stress reduction and the increase of bioavailability of nutrients for animals.

Phytobiotics also serves the bioenergy industry with technology and fermentation stimulants both at the farm and industry level in Europe and Asia.
