Delacon is the world's most-trusted provider of top-class phytogenic solutions for livestock production. For more than three decades, we have pioneered the natural way to keep animals healthy and performing - with phytogenic feed additives.
Founded and grown as an Austrian family business, Delacon has been the pioneer and global leader in phytogenic feed additives for about 30 years. We research, develop and produce purely natural feed additives composed of herbs, spices and essential oils for ruminants, swine and poultry and coined the term 'phytogenics'.
The vision of company founder Helmut Dedl to replace antibiotic growth promoters by phytogenic feed additives and thus to ensure sustainable, profitable life production and food safety, still applies to current CEO Markus Dedl as a guideline of corporate strategy.
From our headquarters and our standardized and modern production facility in Steyregg, Austria, we export our products to more than 80 countries worldwide. Delacon has a global team of about 130 employees at 17 locations and cooperates with distribution partners around the world.
At Delacon, we share three values:
High quality is our commitment in all aspects of our business. We only use state-of-the-art technologies run by highly skilled experts. At Delacon, we always ensure that our products are sustainable, safe and effective. This has also been officially confirmed by the European Food Safety Authority that awarded us the highest classification, the gold standard, in feed additive registration: the EU registration as zootechnical feed additive.
The appearance of new challenges concerning animal nutrition is inevitable, but we are prepared to meet them with full commitment. Constantly striving to do better, Delacon is always intent on finding new, innovative solutions to meet these challenges.
What started as a phytogenic alternative to antibiotic growth promoters became a line of reliable and award-winning products that have shown consistent results in increasing performance, reducing emissions and thus providing a sustainable solution for the future. We are continuously working to deliver the full potential of natural substances in order to make livestock production more sustainable as well as profitable and to create safe consumer products.
These are our key drivers, our understanding of “performing nature”. This is what makes us the choice experts for present and future challenges in animal nutrition for livestock production.
In addition to that, Delacon's success was recognized by various institutions - with the STEP award (2013), the Pegasus Gold trophy for export success (2012), the “Austria’s Leading Companies” award (2012), the Austrian Export award (2009) to name the most recent.
