Nuscience acquires Nutrifarma in Brazil




Nuscience, the specialty division of the Royal Agrifirm Group, has bought over Nutrifarma, a leading provider of premixes, concentrates, specialty feeds, additives and services.


The acquisition provides Nuscience with a more secured foothold in the vital Brazilian market.


Nutrifarma was founded in 1999 and owned by Alfonso Corral, Evaristo Varela and Fernando Eluchans. The company is located in the important livestock production area of Southern Brazil.


With headquarters in Taió, Santa Catarina, and production units in Maripá (Paraná) and Teutônia (Rio Grande do Sul), Nutrifarma has maintained a notable presence in the territory. The recently-built facilities provide a strong growth potential.


"We are delighted to close this deal with Nutrifarma", said Patrick Keereman, the CEO of the Nuscience Group. "We share the same mission of creating (better) value for the customer by means of our innovative and high performing nutritional knowledge and products."


"Nutrifarma's track record on growth is similar to ours and the company is now ready to make the next step. By joining our group, we can give them the support and the necessary specialty products to accelerate this growth. In the meantime, we will start to exploit the synergies that exist," Keereman added.


Under the Nuscience Group, Nutrifarma will continue to be managed by its own team, led by Maria Corral.
