World leader in probiotics

BioGaia is an innovative Swedish health care company and a world leader in probiotics with more than 25 years experience of developing, marketing and selling probiotic products. Over the years we have created global networks of leading, independent researchers and specialists, manufacturing experts and local distribution partners worldwide.

BioGaia’s products are sold in around 100 countries. The largest segment is paediatrics, accounting for over 80 per cent of total sales. Our focus is on finished consumer products that are sold under our own BioGaia brand. In 2015 these sales, including co-branding, accounted for over 60 per cent of sales of finished consumer products. The strategy is to continuously increase the share of products sold under the BioGaia brand.

Our products combine the well researched probiotic bacteria Lactobacillus reuteri with top of the line engineering to develop unique packaging solutions and create probiotic products that match consumer needs. Lactobacillus reuteri is a “good” and friendly bacterium that helps battle the “bad” microorganisms in the digestive tract.
