About us

Leader in feed additives and services in Sub-Sahara Africa

Vitam International started in 2002 with one goal in mind: to make a difference in the animal feed industry through scientifically proven feed additives that are tried and tested to provide farmers with added benefits in animal health and profitability. Our company’s core value lies in relationships, responsibility, and trust allowing us to distinguish ourselves by highly qualified and skilled personnel and exceptional on-farm service. This enables us to be a long-term reliable partner for producers.

We believe in true sustainability through effective science. True sustainability is about taking care of the environment and our people while being profitable. The fundamental success factor throughout any operation that directly impacts sustainability, is efficiency. Therefore, through effective science, the productivity of food protein production is optimised in a sustainable way.

Ultimately, Vitam International is focused on nourishing Africa. Through our partnerships with international suppliers, we make a significant contribution to the agricultural feed industry by supplying world-class technology for mycotoxin risk control, gut health and rumen efficiency and quality silage production.
