The Science:

Optivite’s science is driven by the nutritional needs of animals.  Founded by a group of animal nutritionists, we look at the challenge from the inside out with key products that act to improve gut health by reducing the bacterial challenge on animals, enabling the greater absorption of nutrients. Our nutritionally driven science uses a unique blend of acids, amongst other key ingredients, that have a synergistic effect. Which means Optivite’s products take effect not just in the animal but also on the feed prior to ingestion. 

The Support:

At Optivite's heart is a team of nutritionists and animal husbandry specialists who provide expert advice, service and product knowledge to a diverse customer base. With regional sales and technical support people on-hand to assist with day-to-day challenges. Optivite’s strong partnerships with local distributors puts us directly in touch with local farmers’ needs, working side-by-side with customers to find effective, economic solutions.

Farmers throughout the world are currently enjoying the financial and operational benefits provided by our perfect mix of science & support.

Optivite was founded in 1987 and has grown to become one of the UK's largest independent animal nutrition companies, supplying specialist feed components to integrators, feed compounders and home-mix farms across the UK and the world. Building on an unrivalled reputation in the poultry nutrition sector, we have successfully expanded into the pig, ruminant and pet sectors and are now at the forefront of nutrition in all classes of livestock. During this growth our business has broadened to encompass organic feeds, enzymes, specialist fats, antimicrobials, antioxidants, mycotoxin binders and performance enhancers.

Through a process of planned expansion, strategic acquisition and joint ventures, Optivite now has production sites on three continents and fast, cost-effective distribution throughout the world. Merger in 2009 with the Kiotech group brought further strength to the business and the opportunity to invest in resources to develop further.
