Message from the CEO, Dr. Giles Shih
My father, Dr. Jason Shih, and I started BRI 19 years ago because we believe that biotechnology, and feed additives in particular, have tremendous potential for improving animal health and nutrition while minimizing the impact on natural resources and the environment. BRI’s mission is to use our expertise in these areas to help the animal agriculture industry economically and sustainably supply high value protein to feed the growing world population.
With the tremendous efforts of our internal team and external partners, I am proud that BRI is a profitable, growing company with a diverse product portfolio and global reach.
We are building a culture of innovation based on core values represented by the acronym GRIT – Growth of our company and employees, Respect for people and ideas, Integrity in our communications and way of doing business, and Teamwork that is characterized by optimism, a positive attitude, and novel outcomes. Grit is also a word that has meaning for our team, as it represents firmness of mind or spirit and perseverance in the face of hardship.
Demonstrating business success while living out our core values allows us to attract the best and brightest people in our field to build a top-quality, culturally diverse organization. Our rigorous approach to research and data analysis allows us to continue to discover and develop innovative products that deliver premium performance. From the outset, we have designed our manufacturing and business processes to be scalable, economical, and sustainable while complying with latest international quality standards.
We look forward to hearing and learning from you as we continue our journey to build a lasting legacy of biotechnology and innovation that makes a real difference in our world.
