A desire to provide natural alternatives to agricultural additives led to the creation of Olmix in Bréhan, at the heart of Brittany, in 1995. In 20 years, the company has become a leading global specialist in marine biotechnology and green chemistry.
Olmix started out by sourcing essential trace elements for animal feed. Operating in the farming business, the company soon had the idea of producing natural solutions for agriculture, and this gave rise to innovations resulting in the Mistral litter conditioner, its first environmental hygiene product.
The journey continued with the MonaLisa research programme, seeking solutions to mycotoxins, one of the most serious threats to animals. MT.X+ was born from the association of micronized clays and algae extracts, and was soon followed by MFeed and MFeed+, designed to improve digestive efficiency.
Olmix is now venturing into molecular science with its ULVANS research programme aiming to isolate algae active principles and find new combinations to meet the challenges of rearing livestock. Its new-generation products include Ecopiglet, SeaLyt, Diet, Searup and DigestSea.
