At Nutrolin®, we’ve been at the forefront of providing unique fatty acid formulas to companion animals and humans since 2007.

In 2018, we embarked on a journey with Korkeasaari Zoo, working in tandem with their nutrition and veterinary experts. Together, we’ve made substantial strides in enhancing the well-being of various species, addressing the animals’ skin and coat concerns, and improving mobility.

Join us in exploring how our pioneering approach can benefit the health and vitality of zoo animals.

The consulting nutritionist in charge of the animals‘ nutrition at Korkeasaari Zoo reached out to Dr. Mikko Griinari in 2018. Some of the white-headed sakis had patches of hairless areas on their bodies, while the coats of some other species weren’t as healthy-looking as they could be. Some of the zoo’s older animals were also experiencing mobility issues.

At Korkeasaari, each animal is fed according to not only its species-specific requirements, but also age and other specific needs. Aino Pietikäinen, the consulting nutritionist at Korkeasaari, conveyed these unique dietary requirements to Dr. Mikko Griinari. He embraced the challenge and thus began the partnership between Korkeasaari and Nutrolin®.

Today, several species at Korkeasaari Zoo benefit from their unique Nutrolin® fatty acid blends and the innovative synergistic fatty acid & chondroprotective supplements offered by Nutrolin®.
