In the framework of the Central Hungarian Operational Program, the Dr BATA Hungarian Canadian Biotechnology Research Development Ltd. was awarded 115 million HUF in support of the project "Support for Enterprise Innovation". In the framework of the project, we applied for the development of a herbal combination-based product family against digestive diseases in pigs and help for the market access of the developed product. The total budget of the project was 255.56 million HUF.
Our enterprise started the implementation of KMOP-1.1.4-09-2009-0015 on the 1st July 2009 and completed it in December 2012.
The aim of the project was to develop a herb-containing formula (instead of antibiotics) or a family of products that could be used to prevent and treat diseases that are causing damage to the livestock – this product could be used for pigs, where disease-causing economic damage is more present.
As a result of the project we have developed and patented herbal combinations for the control of swine dysentery and for the prevention of enteritis caused by Escherichia coli, and we have developed the economical production technology of the most beneficial product.
During the implementation of the project, co-operation with well-known Hungarian researchers in the field of animal husbandry was established. The results of the project were presented to professionals and audiences at several professional conferences and exhibitions.
We asked the Supporter to prolong the immediate implementation of the project, until we introduced the product to domestic and foreign markets.
During the project, laboratory and semi-working equipment (abor fluid bed dryer and extruder) supported the research work, as well as a factory-fluid-bed drying plant.back
