Zagro’s Animal Health division has dictated and expedited the need for improved quality and productivity. Our business caters to the needs and healthcare of livestock, poultry and aquatic animals. It manufactures and distributes a wide range of nutrition and protection products to ensure that these animals are protected and given the essential nutrition for growth. The workflow, health environment and safety of our production facilities are continually studied and enhanced as all these inevitably contribute to higher productivity.

As a premix manufacturer, Zagro caters specifically to the animals’ needs with customised formulations developed by a team of dedicated veterinarians and animal nutritionists. The wide range of Zagromix and Anavite vitamin and mineral premixes are specifically designed to meet the requirements of different species of animals. Each formula is carefully formulated to achieve animals’ optimum growth, reproduction and production performance.

Apart from the wide product range of Zagromix and Anavite premixes, Zagro also offers customised formulations to address the specific needs of its clients. It allows clients to adjust the premixes according to their animals’ specific requirements and to their target performance instead of adding their specific needs on their own.

The strength of Zagro vitamin and mineral premixes is that these are all manufactured under stringent quality assurance program together with good manufacturing practices. The manufacturing plant uses a Forberg fluidized zone mixing system that ensure homogeneity of premixes, auto dosing micro bins and modern and computerised facilities by Buhler that assures better mixing efficiency. All raw materials are obtained from pre-approved suppliers and have gone through quality analysis before being used in production. All raw materials are also well stored as per each advised regulated-storage conditions.

Zagro quality control adheres to standards from raw materials to production process to finished products until goods delivery. This guarantees that each premix nutritional value can be traced and be sustainable, thus, ensuring the written requirements to reach the farm as available nutrients for the animals.
