The invention and use of antibiotics played a major role in the treatment of human and animal diseases. However, in recent years, in large-scale animal production, antibiotics have been used as growth promoters, disease-prevention health foods, and other purposes. While improving animal productivity and feed conversion, long-term abuse of antibiotics has also brought a series of drug residues and pathogen resistance. Medicinal and other food safety and public health issues.
The nature of the return to antibiotic treatment, gradually constraining and reducing the use of antibiotic in livestock cultivation has become the consensus of many countries and industrial tendency.
We propose that ”the use of antibiotics for the purpose of promoting growth and disease prevention should not be used in the breeding process. When the antibiotics are used for the symptomatic treatment during animal illness, the dose, course of treatment and drug withdrawal period should be strictly controlled to ensure no antibiotic residues in end product. The above definition of “antibiotic-free product” is the theoretical basis for our implementation of antibiotic-free breeding and certification.
We work with producers, processors and retailers to provide antibiotic-free product Certification Services.
On this page you will find more information on how to achieve and maintain antibiotic-free product certification.
