Rubinum S.A. is a company dedicated to the manufacturing and selling of Toyocerin® worldwide since undergoing a change in ownership in March 2008.
Toyocerin® has its origin in Europe in 1988, where Toyo Jozo Ltd., a Japanese company, started to run a sister company with a minor shareholder Andersen S.A. called Toyo Jozo S.A., established in Rubí, near Barcelona. In 1992 Toyo Jozo S.A. changed its name to Asahi Vet S.A. due to the acquisition of the company by Asahi Kasei Corporation.
In 2005, Andersen S.A. bought all the shares of the company from Asahi Kasei Corporation becoming the owner of the new company called Rubinum S.A.
TOYOCERIN® is a natural micro-organism (Bacillus cereus var. toyoi), with the function of microflora stabilizer in the gut of the animal which improves performance and enables a better digestion of the nutrients provided by the feed.
TOYOCERIN® is the first probiotic to receive authorisation in the European Union to be used as an additive in animal nutrition and is one of the most studied at scientific level. Bacillus toyoi is a strain originally isolated from soil in Japan, and which is not genetically modified.
