BioVac Ltd.

BioVac Ltd. is a poultry vaccine manufacturing industry in Nepal. Poultry farming is an important income generating enterprise and contributes to food security. But epidemics like Newcastle disease can cause 80 per cent or greater mortality in poultry, considerably decreasing productivity. Currently less than 50% of the total demand for Newcastle disease vaccine is actually met, that too via import. However the currently used vaccines are non-thermostable and inaccessible in most rural areas. BioVac aims at producing thermostable vaccines at competitive prices which can be supplied to remote areas.
