Vision

A Pioneer in the application of phage technology to guarantee the sustainable production of safe foods, from farm to fork.

Mission

Addressing the shifting demands of consumers, UniFAHS will drive innovations in the field of phage technology to guarantee the sustainable production of safe foods. Our contribution to the global food supply will improve the health and wellness of Animals, People and Planet.

Values

UniFAHS offers patented customized phage-based approaches to combat bacterial pathogens to:

1. Prevent food safety risks in the food industry, including meat, poultry & ready-to-eat foods.
2. Improve animal health and welfare for livestock (poultry & swine) & aquaculture.
3. Improve feed quality and safety for the feed industry.
4. Improve the economic returns on farms, while promoting sustainable solutions.

Phages Matter From Farm to Fork

Bacteriophages or phages are virus infecting bacteria, also known as bacteria-eater. Phages have the ability to attack harmful bacteria present in the food supply chain, without affecting useful bacteria. Since Phages are bacterial host-specific, they are safe for humans and animals and have been granted the GRAS (Generally Recognized as Safe) status by the US FDA.

With the shift of consumer demands towards the sustainable production of safer and healthier foods, UniFAHS has the unique opportunity to bring innovative phage technology solutions to the Agriculture sector, from farm to fork. By using our products, farmers and food processors will provide antibiotic- and chemical-free animal products to consumers, promoting food safety with the use of sustainable green solutions.
