The Board of Directors of BioGaia AB decided to start the foundation to contribute to the fight against antibiotic resistance. To reduce the use of antibiotics in animal production was the reason for the formation of BioGaia 28 years ago. Ever since, antibiotic resistance has been a central issue for the company. BioGaia has decided to allocate a part of the company’s profits to the Foundation each year. Sponsors who wish to support our cause are welcome to submit contributions, please contact Aase Sten, for more information.
