OBP - Onderstepoort Biological Products

History

Onderstepoort Biological Products (OBP) is a schedule 3B entity established in terms of the OBP Act. Its main objective is to prevent and control animal diseases that impact food security, human health and livelihood.

In 1896 a disease of devastating scale swept through South Africa. Within two years it had destroyed over half of the country's livestock population and 95% of cattle herds. Wildlife was not spared, and it took many years for the decimated herds of free roaming antelope and buffalo to regenerate.

The name of the disease is Rinderpest. It was the worst animal disease pandemic South Africa has experienced – before or since.

It led in 1908 to the establishment of the Onderstepoort Veterinary Research Institute, which became a national centre for the investigation, diagnosis and prevention of the spread of animal diseases.

The name "Onderstepoort" was to become a major role player in the research, development and manufacture of vaccines to combat the many animal diseases which plague Africa.

A veterinary facility of education, under the University of Pretoria, was established and added to the fame of Onderstepoort.

Onderstepoort Biological Products (OBP) manufactures livestock vaccines against animal diseases is situated in the north of Pretoria South Africa. The company is an expert in vaccine development with serious economic impact. There are over 50 products currently being produced, both for the South African and international market, especially Africa. The product portfolio includes bacterial, viral, blood vaccines and some diagnostic reagents.

Onderstepoort Biological Products (OBP) has a simple and overriding corporate mission, to harness science to help build a healthier and more commercially successful agricultural livestock population. Within the framework of that strategy it has two chief roles:

  1. To produce quality vaccines for the prevention and treatment of livestock diseases.
  2. To exploit and develop ongoing research into the production of new and advanced vaccines for the benefit of agriculture here and abroad.

With a century of tradition and achievement behind it, OBP is today better equipped than ever to serve the needs of South Africa, its continental neighbors in West & East Africa – and in a wider world.
