Multikraft Probiotics Australia (MPA) was formed in 2013 as a strategic partnership with Multikraft Austria, who pioneered the use of beneficial microbes (probiotics) in successful commercial applications around 20 years ago. Multikraft has its origins as a stockfeed company in 1977 and through innovation and experience has developed a range of products and services that use naturally occurring “probiotic” microbial bacteria to build-up immunity in animals and plants, solve waste and odour problems and provide cost-effective, sustainable and financially viable integrated solutions for the benefit of society.
The word “kraft” means “power” or “strength” in German, which is fitting for this global enterprise that has been going from strength-to-strength in various environmental applications across more than 25 countries around the world, starting in Europe and expanding into The Middle East and Asia. The growing challenges posed by drought, climate change and food security have been a catalyst for Multikraft entering the Australian market. Our aim is to provide socially responsible and commercially viable alternatives to harsh chemicals in many areas as diverse as agriculture to household cleaners and cosmetics. Moreover, we have been able to demonstrate that our technologies are both environmentally sustainable and optimal for whole-of-community outcomes, through an integrated and professional approach to everything we do.
Advances in technology combined with evolving social, regulatory and legal pressures have moved environmental issues out of the periphery and into the mainstream discussion. We have developed a range of solutions that are complimentary to existing situations and enhance natural processes. Some relevant applications for our products in the region include the reduction of chemical fertilizers in environmentally sensitive areas (such as the Great Barrier Reef) without compromising crop yields, but rather improving financial viability; the recycling of waste materials into high quality composts without the need for expensive machinery; and waste/water treatments that provide long-term clean water supply and combat odour and pathogenic bacteria through probiotic inoculation.
The opportunities for Multikraft Probiotics Australia are almost endless, however we have an initial focus on integrating the principles of sustainable development into programs that reverse the loss of environmental resources and furthermore provide alternatives to harmful chemicals through products that are high quality, reliable, affordable and safe.
