About Corbiota

Corbiota aims to create a more sustainable modern farming by providing young animals with natural and animal-friendly nutrition. Feeding young animals with Corbiota’s earthworms strengthens their eubiosis, the natural balance of microorganisms in their gut and immune system and triggers their natural instincts. They grow up stronger, healthier and more resistant towards diseases, reducing the need for antibiotics treatment - one of the biggest global challenges in today’s farming.

In addition corbiota offers natural fertilizer and recently started a research project on crops. 

Corbiota serves several UN Sustainability goals, is funded by the Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action and is part of Scale-Up.NRW, while the company started in 2019 as a venture of BASF’s business incubator Chemovator GmbH. It has been founded as an independent Company in 2022 and is based in Düsseldorf. Germany.
