working with ab e manufacturing

Ab E Manufacturing is Ab E Discovery’s commercial production path, focused on process development and manufacturing of early stage bio-functional feed ingredients. To accelerate market entry, Ab E Manufacturing outfits forward-thinking businesses with the capacity, resources, and flexible systems needed to get from R&D to scale. Ab E Manufacturing’s production scientists integrate multiple phases of front-end development, engineering and implementing processes that ensure optimal quality and consistency throughout.

Bio-functional materials have many valuable properties and characteristics, which depend on the preservation of their biological properties–and therefore require manufacturing techniques that protect and preserve them. Our production systems and processes are dedicated to retaining functionality of these naturally sourced ingredients, enabling us to add significant value to both new and existing products in the livestock and feed market. 

We’ve designed our systems to accommodate a variety of needs: university researchers needing to produce test batches and develop a manufacturing process for an early stage product; businesses seeking to scale-up commercial manufacturing or for an interim production facility; and more.
