We are shareholders of Aqua Salveo that manufactures and markets Aqua Salveo Water Disinfectant - the patented point of use water disinfectant certified for human use, and Aqua Salveo Human Glove - hand disinfectant. Agribio provides technical backup internationally. Please visit for more details.

As part of our assistance to primary producers, we also market burnt lime (Calcium oxide) to disinfect poultry houses after cleaning as well as to treat carcasses of dead birds.

The high pH of lime has been proven to be strongly antibacterial, killing the common pathogens in poultry houses such as E. coli. It may also kill insects, and seal cracked floors. It is usually applied to the floors as slurry of a 25kg bag of lime in 200 litres of water. Course salt is usually added to act against salt-sensitive bacteria / Mycoplasma.
