Research, development and innovation
In the field of animal nutrition TEGASA is a leading company with more than 50 years of experience in the sector, endorsed by a highly qualified team. In order to meet the growth and improvement objectives, TEGASA incorporates professionals in the field of research and development, allowing to constantly develop additives, vitamin-mineral premixes and complementary feed, which offer nutritional solutions for all animal species.
One of TEGASA’s main pillars in the search for new products are the R&D programs carried out in collaboration with different public universities and private research centres. Through these innovative programs, constant improvement is achieved for clients and a response is offered to the different needs of the market at any time. Therefore, research and development represent a firm commitment for TEGASA in the search for solutions that improve the health and welfare of animals, maintaining the commitment to reduce environmental pollution.
One of the main lines of work of TEGASA in the field of R&D is the reduction of the use of antibiotics through the use of natural alternatives that synergistically combine different types of functional ingredients. In this sense, TEGASA evaluates the effect of its additives by analysing trends of the different bacterial populations sensitive to their products found in their pilot study farms, and performs the determination of the Minimum Inhibitory Concentrations (MIC) of each product in several tests. With all this, it is intended to provide accurate information about their products’ effects.
Currently TEGASA holds the qualification as an innovative small and medium enterprise (SME) and is in permanent development of its own R&D programs. In addition, it develops lines of work endorsed by the “Centre for Industrial Technological Development” (CDTI), evaluated by the Ministry of Science, Innovation and Universities.
