Founded in 2014 by pioneers in microbiome research, agriculture, and public health, Matatu is developing breakthrough diagnostics and therapeutics to improve livestock health and performance.
Our diagnostic capabilities allow farmers to predict the health of their animals by analyzing the bacteria in each animal’s digestive tract. This information can be used to optimize animal nutrition and treatments for maximum feed efficiency and health. Our line of therapies aims to set up young animals for healthy growth and optimal nutrition.
Our mission - harnessing beneficial bacteria for the future of animal health - reflects our commitment to furthering research into the vast potential of the gut bacterial microbiome as well as our deep dedication to improved agricultural practices. Our network of premier partners attests to the strength of our approach and the scope of our potential.
