U.M Enterprises to distribute Anitox feed safety and milling efficiency products in Pakistan
Anitox, the international corporation which develops, manufactures and delivers pathogen elimination, mould control and milling efficiency solutions for the feed milling and primary meat, egg and fish production industries, has appointed a distributor in Pakistan. Karachi-based U.M. Enterprises, a leading provider of feed additives, feed milling machinery and animal health products in Pakistan, will distribute and support the world-class Anitox range in the country.
The agreement between the two companies will enable Pakistan’s livestock production and feed manufacturing sectors to benefit from Anitox feed safety products and technologies. An international corporation with global reach, Anitox now supplies the majority of the world’s leading feed manufacturers and livestock producers.
U.M Enterprises will concentrate on increasing customer awareness of Termin-8®, the Anitox pathogen control programme for finished feed and raw materials, together with its Maxi-Mil® milling efficiency programme.
Termin-8® provides effective control of gram-negative bacteria such as Salmonella and E.coli, gram-positive bacteria such as Staphylococcus and Streptococcus, together with spore-forming bacteria such as Clostridium, in feed and feed ingredients. It also provides long-term protection of feed against recontamination while it is in the mill, during transport or on the farm, for up to 21 days, a claim which has been verified by The United States Food and Drug Administration (USFDA). Every year more than 30 million tonnes of feed and raw materials are treated with Termin-8® to ensure that they are pathogen-free.
Maxi-Mil® allows manufacturers of pelleted feeds to reduce shrink/process loss, lower press energy use, increase pellet durability, reduce fines, enhance digestibility, reduce die and roll wear and optimise their carbon footprint. Extensive field trials in more than 50 countries have proven that Maxi-Mil® substantially reduces shrink/process losses and conserves pellet press energy (kWh/t), increases pellet throughput and improves pellet durability (PDI).
With strong links to the Pakistani agribusiness sector, U.M. Enterprises specialises in human health products, food and feed additives, dairy feed, enzymes, food safety kits, veterinary medicines, as well as solutions for the ethanol and alternative energy industries in Pakistan.
U.M. Enterprises managing director Liaquat Ali Malik commented: “U.M. Enterprises is delighted to be appointed as the distributor for Anitox products in Pakistan. This is a very exciting opportunity and we look forward to developing a strong working partnership with Anitox.”
“As food and feed safety awareness increases across the globe, feed manufacturers and livestock producers in Pakistan are having to adopt a more rigorous approach to feed and food safety. Furthermore, leading international retail food businesses are setting very high standards of food safety and hygiene and meeting their requirements is vital. Reducing Salmonella in feed will be a key element in achieving these more stringent targets, which is why Termin-8® has significant potential, while Maxi-Mil® offers considerable benefits for our feed manufacturers.”
Scott Faul, Regional Director for Anitox in Asia Pacific, said: “We are delighted to be working with U.M Enterprises and strongly believe our products and expertise combined with the knowledge, service and expertise of U.M. will bring benefits to Pakistan’s Animal Feed Industry. Anitox has 35 years experience in antimicrobial and mould-control technology in finished livestock feeds and the raw materials used to produce them. We are now at the forefront of the industry in terms of supplying products which provide safe feed to protect the health of livestock and consumers.”
