Kemin Industries Celebrates 20 Years of CLOSTAT™ and Probiotic Excellence in Intestinal Health for Production Animals

Company’s animal nutrition and health business unit in the Asia-Pacific region honors the occasion at International Conference on Poultry Intestinal Health

Kemin Industries, a global ingredient manufacturer that strives to sustainably transform the quality of life every day for 80 percent of the world with its products and services, is celebrating two decades of CLOSTAT, its flagship probiotic product for managing intestinal health in poultry and livestock. To commemorate the milestone, the Kemin Animal Nutrition and Health business unit hosted an anniversary dinner on Tuesday, April 16, in Manila, Philippines. The event coincides with the 8th International Conference on Poultry Intestinal Health (ICPIH), also held in the country’s capital city, on April 17–19.

Kemin’s probiotic solution has pioneered the promotion of healthy microbiome to drive intestinal resilience, manage gut health challenges, and improve animal productivity. CLOSTAT offers a practical and comprehensive solution that supports the development of a balanced gut microbiota, enhances immune function, and reduces antibiotic use—all while safeguarding animal health, welfare, growth, and performance.

Since launching in 2004, CLOSTAT has been used by poultry producers in more than 50 countries to help achieve better feed efficiency, growth rate, and profitability. CLOSTAT has also been well-recognized by several industry awards, such as the Animal Pharm Best New Product Award in 2005, the World Poultry Innovation Award in 2006, and the Asian Agribiz Product of the Year Award in 2018.

Building on the success of CLOSTAT, Kemin launched ENTEROSURE in 2022, to address the changing needs of animal producers. ENTEROSURE expands on the scientifically proven efficacy of CLOSTAT’s Bacillus PB6 against Clostridium perfringens by also managing the growth of Escherichia coli and other Enterobacteriaceae, such as Salmonella. With a proprietary blend of probiotic Bacillus strains, ENTEROSURE offers a comprehensive solution for managing gut health challenges and improving animal productivity.

“We are extremely proud of the impact of CLOSTAT over the past 20 years,” said Dr. Chris Nelson, President and CEO, Kemin Industries. “Our flagship probiotic-support ingredient is a testament to Kemin’s commitment to innovation and quality and our vision to improve the quality of life. We look forward to celebrating this achievement with our valued customers, partners, and friends at ICPIH and continuing to provide the best solutions for poultry intestinal health.”
