The founder's vision
Chairman, David Chan Pham
If antibiotics are considered one of the greatest inventions of the 20th century,
then pre-activated probiotics are one of the greatest inventions of the 21st century
Spohalo aims to become the first biotech startup in the world
to directly address and reduce the use of antibiotics and antibiotic resistance, categorized by the WHO as “one of the biggest threats to global health, food security and development today”.
Replacing antibiotics with probiotics would not only address antibiotic resistance but also fortify human health.
The founder’s vision is to bring microorganisms and apply biotechnology to all aspects of life in the 21st century, reaching beyond sectors of human health to agriculture, aquaculture, and even consumer products.
