Zeachem in microbials collaboration

Biorefinery developer, ZeaChem Inc., announced a Product Development and Supply Memorandum of Understanding with Pure Cultures, a producer of high-quality probiotic products. The agreement will accelerate the product development of Pure Cultures’ direct fed microbials (DFM). The companies intend to cooperatively validate pilot, demonstration and production processes at ZeaChem’s facility in Boardman, Oregon and Pure Cultures’ facility in Denver, Colorado, with the intent of defining production protocols and product specifications.

While validation work is ongoing, ZeaChem and Pure Cultures will also develop a Supply Agreement, contingent upon successful completion of the validation work, for the contract manufacturing of direct fed microbials at ZeaChem’s facilities in Boardman, Oregon.

According to Pure Cultures, the use of DFMs helps remove the necessity of antibiotics from the food chain. This in turn enables growers to better respond to increasing retail food demands.
