Adisseo acquires Nutriad
On December 12, Adisseo announced the acquisition of feed additive producer Nutriad.
Nutriad, headquartered in Dendermonde, Belgium, operates four laboratories and five plants located in Belgium, Spain, the United Kingdom, China and the United States. The business generates gross sales of about US$100 million per year.
Nutriad has a product range in palatability, mycotoxin management and digestive performance. The company is present in poultry, swine, aquaculture, dairy and cattle.
Adisseo says that Nutriad's product range, the species addressed, and its target markets are highly complementary to its own range and will allow the combined business to implement integrated solutions and offer greater value to customers.
Jean-Marc Dublanc, CEO of Adisseo, said, "Today we take another major step forward in delivering our strategy and we are thrilled to welcome the Nutriad team as they join the Adisseo family. We look forward to welcoming the Nutriad employees with their great knowledge and expertise.
The acquisition of Nutriad supports our ambition for accelerating growth of our Specialties business in order to address our customers' needs.
Together, we will set up an efficient organisation which should allow us to strengthen our global product portfolio's competitiveness and its overall efficiency. We will also mutually benefit from respective strengths and global commercial coverage for product registration, sales, marketing and worldwide distribution network, with combined sales in more than 100 countries."
Erik Visser, CEO of Nutriad, added, "We are excited to become part of Adisseo because both companies are driven by the same ambition - to deliver the most innovative and practical feed solutions to our customers. We are proud of what we have achieved in recent years, as Nutriad is growing rapidly across species and geographies. By combining our strengths with those of Adisseo, we can jointly accelerate success for our customers."
