Vi-COR is a world-leading manufacturer of refined functional carbohydrates (RFC). Pilot represents VI-COR’s revolutionary innovation in products containing RFC technology.
The four key features of RFC include:
- Modulating the gut environment as a prebiotic
- Enhancing the immune system to both prevent and control disease
- Binding mycotoxins to prevent their negative impact
- Improving nutrient digestibility
Including RFCs in feed results in a powerful all-natural solution to improving performance and health. Vi-COR is a passionate and progressive biotechnology company with proven scientific advances.
Vi-COR has operated with an out-sourced marketing business model in the swine industry for the past five or six years. The company has had a relationship with NutriQuest (a.k.a. VAST) with products marketed under the trade name Cel-CAN (including Cel-CAN X9 and Cel-MOS). Vi-COR is the developer and manufacturer of these products.
The products are being re-branded to enable a clean break from the past. The new brand name is PILOT and products will no longer be marketed through NutriQuest. Vi-COR will market directly, business to business, which eliminates the middleman. There will be no interruption in product supply by placing orders directly with Vi-COR as the manufacturer.
Mark Holt, President of Vi-COR, is excited about the significant growth of the business. “Earlier this year, Scott Webster, Vice President Swine Division, joined the Vi-COR family to head up this area," he says. "Scott brings years of extraordinary swine industry and technical experience to our team. Along with our team of professionals, we are well positioned to not only offer great, consistent quality products, but to also provide the technical expertise expected by our customers.”
“We will continue to make scientific advances and our customers will share in these continuous product improvements. I look forward to sharing my industry knowledge, understanding the needs of our customers and expanding our business relationships,” shares Scott Webster.
Vi-COR has been in the livestock feed industry for over 50 years. The company conducts business in over 65 countries and has grown over 30 percent annually over the last decade.
