Uniferon® launched in the Ukraine

August 23, 2013

We are happy to announce the successful registration and launch of Uniferon® in the Ukraine.

As a developing key Eastern European pig farming market, Pharmacosmos is now able to supply winning pig farmers with the benefits of quality injectable iron supplementation.

In recent time, the Ukrainian pig production industry has developed in a positive direction, and many believe that the best years lie just ahead of us.

At Pharmacosmos, we are pleased to be an active part of this movement towards best practice management.

We have chosen Woodhoff as dedicated partner thanks to the company's hands-on experience with the challenges and possibilities in the Ukraine and we look forward to a strong and fruitful long-term collaboration.

A short introduction by Woodhoff
At Woodhoff, we have been active on the Ukrainian market for 2 years and have a clear focus on sow farming, including artificial insemination and expertise on how to grow the piglet up to 30 kg with high digestible protein, milk powders and antibiotic replacers.

Pharmacosmos is well-known throughout the world for high quality products and in our opinion Uniferon® matches the Ukrainian pig industry perfectly.

As Ukrainian pig farming has developed significantly in the last 3-4 year, the local pig farmer is increasingly demanding quality injectable iron, and this is the primary reason why we have agreed to partner with Pharmacosmos.

At Woodhoff, we recognize the quality and effect of Uniferon®, which match our current product line, and we are very positive about the fact that Uniferon® is a unique feron supplement for piglets, which can't be compared to any other product on the Ukrainian market.

We look forward to a strong partnership with Pharmacosmos - where both company will work together to stay close and committed to the challenges of the Ukrainian pig farms.
