Who we are?

Allgäuvet GmbH is a highly specialized company in the field of animal nutrition and veterinary medicine. The company traces its roots back to the year of 2011 when a group of German veterinarians established a premix plant dedicated for producing Vitamins & Minerals premixes located in Allgäu; it is well known in Germany for its farm produce, especially dairy products, from which the company name came from. And then lately, they started producing medicated premixes and veterinarian products.

One member in Allgäuvet's group of veterinarians is Egyptian, whereas they got the idea of establishing a subsidiary in Egypt in 2013 to benefit from the German expertise and experience in that field.

Though we are a newly established company, it is really not what we can say about ourselves, but what we can validate through our philosophies, experience and achievements that lie beneath the importance of both people as the most important asset in a successful foundation, and sophisticated technology as a new company facilitates its utilizing.

It is well known that the age of a company is considered by how many years of people experiences they have. We actually, have over 50 years of combined experience in the field of feed additives and veterinarian products. Allgäuvet's GM in Germany is a veterinarian who has 25 years field experience, moreover Allgäuvet's GM in Egypt is animal nutritionist who has 20 years field experience as well, all the employees are from the field as we do not consider it a business, we consider it a profession.

AllgauMix, vitamin trace minerals premixes

Are uniform mixtures of one or more Micro-ingredients with diluent and/or carrier (i.e. limestone, MCP, wheat bran, etc.).
Premixes are used for facilitating a uniform dispersion of micro-ingredients in a larger mix.
In light of this meaningful academic definition, premixing process should ensure right blend of all the micro-ingredients in the right form, proportion, purity, potency and distribution.

Our Concept

Our concept of premix production is the most important feed supplement to all types of animal production, as it contains more than 20 components, the deficiency of each has an economic cost equals to the cost of not adding most of the other additives and supplements.
So, we see premix as a package of more than 19 supplements, its importance is not less than the importance of any other supplement or additive.

Furthermore, our perception of the premix exceeded its general concept from just covering animal's nutritional requirements, to playing the main contributive role in reaching the optimum animal performance and protective & preventive barrier from diseases.

Know How

Knowledge: High quality premix production requires detailed knowledge about individual vitamins & minerals and how they perform during storage, mixing, processing, feeding, digestion, absorption, and metabolism. Out of our perception that the knowledge is the main limiting factor of premix's quality, that is why we at a wide range benefit by professional scientists at all the aspects related to the premix industry beginning with nutritionists, clinical nutrition specialist, ending by pharmacology to help in better choosing and estimating the raw materials quality, as well as setting up the QAQC for the plant. Our estimation of the vitamins & minerals premixes production accuracy is at the same level of estimating the pharmaceutical production and human supplements; feed grade in the concept of food grade.

Technology: Premixing has progressed from the simple hand mixing of several ingredients to mechanical mixing, then continuous mixing, and now to computer controlled mixing. In Egypt, for long time premix's manufacturing depending on manual system remained one of the common mistakes in practice, on the ground that the full automation system weighs on basis of density which might be risky because of the different sources of the raw materials and their density, till updated technology has enabled us to depend on full computerized production lines that are equipped with gravimetric system which enable us to utilize the full automation system devoid of risks. In all the fully computerized plants human mistakes probabilities non-exist. Beside the fully automation & computerized production systems we have, one of our production lines is especially designed and fully dedicated for manufacturing the high quality Macro-Premixes; feed additives & supplements mixture, while most micromixers and lines are not good for Macro-Premixes production.

Raw Materials & Outsourcing : Careful choice of premix components; vitamins, trace minerals and carriers is one of the most important QC practices. We are following a different strategy for handling raw materials in the same way as a followers' bunch; we pick each flower from the best garden/producer can supply. Actually, we source our premixes from the worldwide class-A manufacturers to eliminate the quality risk factors.

Vitamins: As we know that each company of the top worldwide Class-A vitamin producers is distinct in producing a group of vitamins, for instance a sole company is better in producing fermentation sources of commercial vitamins; Folate, Riboflavin, B12, Biotin, the second is good in chemically processed; Niacin, Vitamin E, Pyridoxine, Pantothenate, and the third is the best in natural products; Vitamin E, Vitamin A. Out of this, we separately approach each company for its specialization.

Minerals: Concerning the quality of minerals, we rely upon one of the leading European labs for selecting the best minerals suppliers' globally, in addition to setting minerals importing policy, and following their quality. Certain important factors are skillfully considered regarding minerals selection like purity, potency, bioavailability, interaction and their potential oxidative stress over vitamins .

Carriers & Diluents: Many of the premixing problems occur due to differences in particle shape, size, and density amongst premixes components, including the carrier. The compatibility of a carrier with the other components of the premix is one of the main limiting factors in premix quality. Within our perception's framework concerning the difference between the carriers and the diluents, our concept of the carrier has broaden more than the defined concept of other premix producers in depending on limestone as a sole carrier, though we are inclined to step towards systematic thinking for selecting and preparing the proper carrier carrier that is German Laboratories that is compatible to vitamins & minerals particle size profiles.

Inorganic Carrier: A special unit in our plant facilities equipped with Vibratory Mechanical Sifters and Multimill is dedicated for preparing the inorganic carrier with the desired screen analysis and proper particle size profiles.

Organic Carrier: Usually many are not aware that the commonly used carriers for premixes in general are not consistent with the vitamins' density and particle size. Some of the organic carriers have the desired characteristics as a vitamins mixture carrier. These carriers have naturally moisture content which might reach up to 12%. So, we prepared a dryer unit to decrease the moisture in these carriers to less than 5%, plus the QC precautions, which assure their non-contamination of Mycotoxins. Generally, we have a strategy of using not less than 15% of the carrier used as an organic in manufacturing Allgaeumix, since these carriers play an important role in absorbing the harmful free water in the vitamins as a result of triggering the Redox Reaction.

Quality Assurance

Our perception of the QA it is the beating heart of the premix industry, this perception differs a lot from other premix producers' perceptions, in terms of that we benefit by consultants who are experienced in QA at the pharmaceutical companies which are known for being well-designed in setting up Quality Assurance Programmes and good manufacturing practices (GMP). That allows us to continuously check throughout the process to assure meeting of product's specifications when the manufacturing processes completed.

Quality Control & complete traceability ( the ability to track any component through all stages of production ) are conducted to verify the GMP’s procedures, that’s why we benefit by one of the biggest laboratories in Europe, most experienced in QC management for premixes to set up our QC plan, to control imported raw materials and finished products through sending samples for analysis regularly and sending comprehensive results' reports in precise periods.
