EW Nutrition launches phytogenic solution for respiratory support in Philippines
EW Nutrition has launched Grippozon, the company's respiratory health solution, in the Philippines.
Already successful in various international markets, Grippozon prevents and mitigates respiratory challenges in farm animals and reduces the possibility of viral challenges from developing into bacterial pneumonia.
In conjunction with the launch of Grippozon, EW Nutrition hosted a webinar for customers in the Philippines.
The panel of speakers included Dr. Merideth Parke, regional technical manager at EW Nutrition South East Asia/Pacific; Art Frio, independent key opinion leader and pig production and nutrition consultant at 1st Ten Consulting Asia Pacific; and Dr. Ruturaj Patil, global product manager for Liquid Solutions at EW Nutrition.
During the webinar, Dr. Parke offered a global perspective on swine respiratory diseases and highlighted the factors impacting the cost to production systems.
With vast experience working in farms in Southeast Asia, Frio provided insights into the implementation of innovative solutions tackling respiratory challenges in farm operations.
Dr. Patil then introduced the features and benefits of Grippozon and also shared feedback from global customers with the attendees. He highlighted Grippozon's contribution to speeding up recovery from respiratory symptoms, improving appetite by creating optimal breathing conditions, and stimulating water and feed intake.
The webinar was rounded off with an interactive Q&A session, where the audience had the opportunity to have their questions answered live by the panel of speakers.
"We are always working with our valued partners to understand the needs and challenges of the industry. Acting preventively against respiratory risks, Grippozon can improve welfare and respiratory ease, reduce the need for antibiotics and consequently mitigate the risk of antimicrobial resistance. Our experiences also show economic benefits for the producers implementing ABR strategies in their production," said Jurek Grapentin, regional director of EW Nutrition Southeast Asia/Pacific.
