NAFDAC approves first alternative herbal supplements to vaccine for poultry



National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) has approved the first indigenous alternative herbal supplements to vaccine and antibiotics for poultry in Nigeria.

The herbal supplements had provided succour to 1,468 farm centers in Nigeria that were faced with threat from various diseases affecting their birds on the farms.

The co-founder and managing director of Ehibaghe Organic System, manufacturer of the herbal product, Adedeji Babatunde, who announced this on Tuesday in a press statement in Calabar, Cross River State, stated that the management of the company is grateful to NAFDAC for believing in the supplements by granting them approval to be legally recognised to serve as alternative to vaccines for poultry in Nigeria.

He said that the herbal supplements fight bacteria, fungi and viral infections as well as improve microbes that play a crucial role in poultry productivity and health.

Adedeji further explained that over the years, the health of birds and productive status of farms that patronise the supplements have drastically improved due to reduced cases of sickness.

The managing director assured that the company would expand its product to enable it cater more for many farms in Nigeria in a few months after it is officially launched.
