Improved health and well-being with clinically-tested probiotic products
The core of BioGaia’s business is clinicallytested and user-friendly probiotic products. This is also the company’s main contribution to sustainable development in a wider perspective.
BioGaia’s business mission is based on well-documented probiotic products contributing to the health and well-being of people worldwide. The probiotics can also be used preventively to strengthen the immune system, which can contribute to reduced use of antibiotics and thus reduced risk of antibiotic resistance. The company’s products are currently available in 100 countries worldwide.
Research and development
BioGaia collaborates with independent researchers who study the effects of BioGaia’s probiotic strains, both in humans and in the laboratory. The company also performs its own research to develop new products and improve existing ones. To enable a broader product portfolio in the future, BioGaia works strategically with business development. The subsidiary BioGaia Pharma and the acquisition of the research company MetaboGen create conditions for working with the entire microbiome in all regulatory categories.
Antibiotic resistance is one of the biggest global health threats. In addition to the core business, BioGaia is actively involved in spreading awareness within this area. At the end of 2017 an independent foundation was formed to provide financial support to individuals who research or work to spread awareness of antibiotic resistance. During 2018 the Foundation awarded SEK 4 million to four research projects, three at the Karolinska Institute and one at Uppsala University.
