We are a three decade old company built on passion, dedication and a never ending urge for knowledge, innovation and sustainable advances in animal nutrition. Founded by Late Dr. Jayaprakash Nair, Zeus Biotech had foreseen the needs of the animal feed industry in the 21st century through its innovative product lines including feed specific solid state fermentation enzymes, fermented organic trace minerals, rumen specific yeast culture, and other unique nutritional supplements. Inspired by the extreme ability of microbes to do bioconversions of simple compounds to complex and highly bioactive molecules, we engage specific bioprocess strategies including submerged and solid-state fermentation, to produce highly efficient molecules such as feed specific enzymes, probiotics, fermented organic trace minerals and herbal actives.
Soaring to New Heights
Respecting nature and following the organic way in all the processes and products, we have been growing steadily over the years to be one of the leading animal supplement manufacturing company in India. Initiated with a moderate infrastructure of two fermentation facilities, Zeus Biotech currently holds one of the largest Solid- State Fermentation manufacturing facility for feed supplements in the country with 18 fermentation chambers spanning over three production units. This is supported through a 10,000 square feet state-of-the-art Research & Development centre with a dedicated Microbial Culture collection facility and a well-equipped Quality Control & Research lab. Currently, we export our products to more than 20 countries in south east Asia, the Middle east and the African region.
Many Firsts to Our Credit
Zeus Biotech introduced the world’s first feed specific synergistically acting multienzyme supplement POLYZYME, from a single substrate in the year 1991 by Solid State Fermentation. In the year 1994, Zeus Biotech produced the world’s first broiler feed specific probiotic-enzyme feed supplement BROZYME, produced by fermentation of selected new generation bacillus & fungal cultures on a single substrate.
During the last decade, Zeus Biotech and its associate companies have brought out many innovative, ‘all natural’ feed supplements. They include feed specific Solid state fermentation enzymes, Double strain live yeast cultures fermented on herbal-grain mash, Herbo-mineral complexes for optimum egg production, Organically bound micro-mineral complexes for all animal species, Yeast nucleotides, Phosphorylated yeast mannoglucan O ligosaccharides and many more.
