Founded in 1998 CanBiocin Inc. began as a University of Alberta spin-off company and first commercialized Micocin®, a probiotic metabolite used to inhibit the growth of Listeria monocytogenes in processed meat products and with beneficial application in livestock feed.
CanBiocin Inc. expanded into the US market with the acquisition of PureCultures in 2020. Both companies share the same vision and passion for improving pet and livestock health through enhanced nutrition backed by science and focusing on gut health.
In 2020 CanBiocin Inc. was added to the National Animal Supplement Council’s (NASC) Preferred Supplier Program as a carefully vetted supplier of species-specific probiotic ingredients for pet food and treats. To be accepted into the NASC Preferred Supplier Program, companies must meet a collection of benchmarks set by the organization. These include passing a third-party facility audit and demonstrating ongoing compliance in quality control, labelling guidelines, random product testing and other areas.
CanBiocin Inc. successfully met the standard for ISO 17025 accreditation in 2021. ISO is an independent, non-governmental and international organization that certifies for standardization against global benchmarks for internal process controls and quality assurance.
