Quality healthcare products from New Zealand

You may know us for our exceptional food products, but we know that quality beef and lamb can do a lot of other good too. That’s why we’re pioneering innovative healthcare solutions that are being used around the globe to improve and save lives.

Truly reliable traceability

We have an integrated supply chain, meaning that we take responsibility for the whole process of creating our healthcare products. We know our farmers, we buy their animals, we process our livestock and ship it to our customers. That’s the kind of supply chain management you won’t find with other healthcare companies—and that translates to quality and confidence.

Learn About Our Supply Chain

Consistent safety and quality

New Zealand is the world’s safest source of animal products, thanks to our stringent animal health regulations and geographic isolation. Our country is designated “GBR1,” which means we have a negligible risk of bovine spongiform encephalopathy (BSE) and other animal diseases of commercial significance. But for us, that’s not enough. We prioritise strict quality control and compliance. Our facilities that produce material for our healthcare range are EU and USDA/FDA certified.

Bovogen Biologicals

Our team at Bovogen are dedicated to the research, development, manufacture and supply of high-quality animal serums, purified animal proteins and other specialty biotech products.

Our Bovogen customer footprint covers five continents and incorporates more than 45 countries worldwide. With the continued growth and global demand for Bovogen products, we regard this as testament and recognition of our internationally recognised and accredited manufacturing standards, outstanding product quality and highly valued customer service excellence.
