WHAT WE DO IN RUBINUM
Rubinum S.A. is a company dedicated to the manufacture and sale of Toyocerin® worldwide since the change of ownership in March 2008.
Toyocerin® originated in Europe in 1988, when the Japanese company Toyo Jozo Ltd. established a subsidiary with Andersen S.A. called Toyo Jozo S.A., based 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. acquired all the shares of Asahi Kasei Corporation, creating a new company called Rubinum S.A..
Our objectives are :
– To register the product in more categories and species
– To reach more markets by expanding our network of distributors worldwide.
Toyocerin, naturally profitable
TOYOCERIN® is a natural micro-organism (Bacillus toyonensis) whose main function is to stabilise the gastro-intestinal micro-flora, thus improving production yields and optimising the digestion of the nutrients administered in the feed.
TOYOCERIN® was the first probiotic to be approved as a feed additive in the European Union and one of the most scientifically studied. Bacillus toyonensis is a non-genetically modified strain of bacteria isolated from soil in Japan. This micro-organism is ubiquitous in the soil, so it can be ingested by animals that feed on the soil, such as pigs or free-range chickens. In addition, it has a long history on the market, not only in Europe but worldwide (Japan, South East Asia, South America) – Bacillus toyonensis has been shown both in vitro and in vivo to inhibit the growth of zoonotic bacteria such as Salmonella and E. coli.
These results have been corroborated by studies showing a reduction in the prevalence of Salmonella in broilers and fattening pigs fed diets supplemented with Bacillus toyonensis.
