The Dr. Bata Ltd. won 318.66 million HUF non-refundable funding on the project “Funding for market-oriented research and development”. The investment budget of 480.33 million HUF helped to develop a complex, biotechnology based, acid-resistant, protected NSP enzymproduct development of probiotic effect. Throughout this project the solution was found for the economical and environment friendly treatment and utilization of biological, rich in fiber by-products.
The support for market-oriented research and development activity, GOP-1.1.1-11-2012-0344, was provided by a consortium project (318.66 million HUF budget) that was completed on the 31st August 2015.
The consortium-leader, Dr. Bata Ltd. has consistently been present in the production, the research and development and on fodder supplement market. This development was helped by the Kaposvár University Faculty Agricultural and Environmental Sciences with its modern infrastructure used for animal experiments and with its experienced researchers. The University of West Hungary (today University of Sopron) Department of Nutrition supplemented the scientific experience in ways of using the by-products for feed to economic livestock.
Experiments, with the two universities, focused on; the comparison of probiotic lactic bacterial strains - LB. plantarum, LB. lactis, Streptococcus faecium, in vitro studies of the cultured Cellvibrio, Ruminococcus, Bacillus and the enzyme-producing yarn-like fungus found in the normal colon flora (spasm, microbial, enzyme activity).
The developed probiotic microorganism strains provided their acid production and the maximum efficiency of the enzymes by producing a probiotic fodder additive prototype that breaks down new, more efficient and unprecedented polysaccharides.
The high level of quality and good value-for-money products that help improve post-ileal rostering developed in the research and development project have a huge demand on the world level. With even more stringent environmental standards and high consumer expectations - antibiotic-free yield enhancement - and the increasingly varied agricultural by-product use, their demand for animal feed continues to grow.back
