Under the three-year deal, APS BioGroup has become VitaDairy’s exclusive producer and supplier of a bovine colostrum ingredient, Colos IgG 24h. This proprietary colostrum will serve as the key ingredient in VitaDairy’s ColosBaby portfolio of products for children and mothers across Vietnam. The Colos IgG 24h ingredient has a high level of IgG antibodies, which the company said has demonstrated immune-boosting properties in preclinical and clinical studies.
Mark Braman, CEO of PanTheryx, said, “We couldn’t be prouder to become the exclusive supplier of Colos IgG 24h colostrum for VitaDairy, who are leaders in immunonutrition and focused on improving the lives of children and other vulnerable groups in Vietnam.
“More and more, bovine colostrum is being recognized for its many health benefits as nature’s perfect first food– rich in immunoglobulins, antimicrobial peptides, growth factors, cytokines and oligosaccharides that have been shown to have synergistic effects. As shown through VitaDairy’s partnership with the Vietnamese Ministry of Health, this type of nutrition has the power to not only benefit the health of mothers and children, but also to promote public health.”
Nguyen Thi Ha, CEO of VitaDairy, said, “As PanTheryx is the premier manufacturer of the highest quality bovine colostrum products in the world, our partnership with them strategically supports our vision of improving the health of Vietnamese people safely and effectively.
“Not all bovine colostrum is the same. If it does not contain a consistent high level of quality IgG, it is difficult to achieve meaningful outcomes. By exclusively using PanTheryx colostrum, we have confidence that we are delivering only the most efficacious products to our customers.”
VitaDairy has been recognized as the exclusive partner by the Vietnamese Ministry of Health to promote the Vietnamese Year of Immunological Nutrition. Through this partnership, the company and the Vietnamese Ministry of Health are focusing on helping Vietnamese children achieve stronger immunity. Their efforts include launching a series of educational seminars to healthcare professionals and conducting studies on the effects of nutrition and the immune system.
