Our History

Anpario has been formed by a combination of three UK companies.

Agil was established in 1936 and set up the Feed Additive division in 1985. It became Kiotechagil in 2006. Kiotechagil created unique mineral carrier technologies, producing innovative Acid products that reach throughout the entire digestive tract.

Optivite was founded in 1987 and grew to become one of the UK’s largest independent animal nutrition companies, supplying specialist feed components to integrators, feed compounders and home-mix farms across the UK and the world.

Meriden Animal Health was established in 1991 with a vision to produce natural products of the highest quality. Meriden produced market-leading products and lead the way in the development of phytogenics with its pioneering product, Orego-Stim.

Meriden Animal Health, Kiotechagil and Optivite were acquired by Anpario between 2006 -2012, having each been trading for over 25 years in the global feed additive industry.

Anpario has been re-positioned to become the customer facing brand, having previously remained in the background as the parent company.

Through the acquisition of Meriden Animal Health, Kiotechagil and Optivite, Anpario has brought together cutting-edge product technology and has a very broad range of speciality feed additive products.
