Delacon FRESTA® F

The phytogenic performance enhancer in pig production

  • Improves feed intake & FCR
  • Enhances nutrient utilization
  • Supports intestinal health
  • Increases stress tolerance


FRESTA® is a phytogenic solution for maximum performance in pig production. With FRESTA® F you trust in a well-established, safe and effective product. This has also been confirmed by the EFSA & EU, as the product is the first and only phytogenic product that obtained an EU registration as a zootechnical feed additive for weaned piglets.


Scientific gold standard

The legal category of zootechnical feed additives encompasses products, which can prove a significant and beneficial effect on growth performance in animals. In the past, the most common groups comprised enzymes, probiotics and antibiotics. Achieving this registration in the EU, equated with the ‘scientific gold standard’ for feed additives, requires considerable expertise, scientific know-how, planning and considerable investment to prove the physiological benefits of a single product on animal performance.

Due to our scientifically substantiated research data base from around the world, Delacon is the first company to receive a zootechnical registration by the EU for a 100% pure phytogenic product - FRESTA® F.  


Pig production faces many challenges, mainly due to market pressure, diseases, environmental conditions and other constraints, which have a direct impact on pigs’ feed formulations throughout their lives. Moreover, optimized feed efficiency – meaning highest productivity with the lowest possible feed costs – is the basis for profitable pig production.


Feed intake is a major challenge with regards to piglets as well as sows during lactation. Maximum feed intake is important for young pigs in order to support the development of the intestinal tract and, consequently, their later performance. In addition to feed intake, nutrient digestibility and antioxidant properties are crucial in these critical periods. The main objective with regards to sows is to increase the milk yield and quality as well as to maximize litter weight gain, while keeping the sow in good body condition for further parities.


Natural performance enhancer for piglets, sows and growing-finishing pigs

FRESTA® F is an all-natural feed additive, fully using synergistic effects of different groups of active substances. The product combines carefully selected phytogenic substances like essential oils, herbs, spices, mucilages and flavonoids. All ingredients of the product have been perfectly aligned to the needs of pigs in their respective life phases.


Moreover, Delacon is proud to provide FRESTA® F OFC, which is certified by Austria Bio Garantie. The certification by this independent control authority gives proof that our phytogenic feed additive meets highest standards of organic farming.


Delacon's phytogenic feed additives ensure a safe and sustainable production, and completely replace antibiotic growth promoters, thus providing residue-free end products.
