EW Nutrition and Grasp establish strategic partnership



EW Nutrition GmbH has acquired 51% of the shares in Grasp Indústria e Comércio Ltda, which is based in Curitiba (Brazil).


The two companies have entered into a strategic partnership to combine two strong science based product portfolios in the field of functional, innovative feed additives.


In addition to its previous product range, Grasp will market the EW Nutrition product portfolio in Brazil. EW Nutrition's product range includes functional egg proteins (Globigen), probiotics (Progressive), silage inoculants (StabiLac) and a wide range of specialty feeds. EW Nutrition will take over the international distribution of Grasp's product lines which include mycotoxin binders (Marstersorb), essential oils (Activo) and MOS (Bgmos).


Jan Wesjohann, managing director of EW Nutrition GmbH says, "Alysson Hoffmann Pegoraro and his team have built up an excellent company that has a similar vision to EW Nutrition. We are excited to have this opportunity to become a part of the important Brazilian market and to introduce technically strong products that already have a leading position in the Brazilian market to our international customer base."


Alysson Hoffmann Pegoraro, managing director of Grasp Indústria e Comércio Ltda who will continue to lead the company says, "I'm looking forward to our cooperation with EW Nutrition and EW Group to explore the international market opportunities for our existing product range and to introduce their products to our Brazilian customers."
