Company Wins Grant to Further Develop Antibiotics for Livestock Breeding

GEORGIA - Georgian biotech company BioChimPharm has won a grant from the Georgian Innovation and Technology Agency for its innovative veterinary antimicrobial product – PowerPhage.

PowerPhage is the world's first natural antimicrobial effective in fighting harmful bacteria such as Salmonella, E. coli and Shigella.

The product aims to provide alternatives to the use of antibiotics in poultry and livestock production and fight against the problem of antibiotic resistance.

PowerPhage can replace antibiotics on chicken and livestock farms, the company says.
