Alltech to partner with newly acquired Produs Aqua AS at Aqua Nor event



US animal health and nutrition firm Alltech announced it will be returning to the international Aqua Nor event, which will be held on August 18-21 in Trondheim, Norway.


As part of the Fiskeriforum Vest (Western Norway) stand, D-338, Alltech will partner with the newly acquired Norwegian Produs Aqua AS for the first time to showcase its very latest custom nutritional solutions and services. The Aqua Nor event is held biennially and attracts between 15,000 and 20,000 visitors from more than 50 countries.


"Aqua Nor provides us the opportunity to further establish our presence in Norway following our acquisition of Produs AS and Produs Aqua AS", said Patrick Charlton, Alltech European vice president. "Alltech's new business base in Norway will build on the growth already gained in the market with Produs Aqua. We see tremendous opportunity for ongoing innovation in the farmed fish feed business, and Aqua Nor will provide us with the perfect platform to meet many of Norway's important aquaculture players".


Alltech will be represented by Charlton; Jorge Arias, Alltech global aqua director; and Magne Kolstad, managing director, Alltech Norway (formerly Produs AS & Produs Aqua AS) along with a team of global and local scientists and nutritionists. 


Aqua Nor 2015 is expected to host an estimated 400 exhibitors representing more than 600 manufacturers and suppliers from across the globe. Current challenges and developments in the fields of aquaculture technology, fish feed, fish health, quality assurance, environmental protection and distribution will be discussed by industry experts at the event. 


"While there is a sea of opportunities for the aqua industry to grow, we must also stay ahead of challenges such as wild stock overfishing, fish oil shortages and dead zones in the world's oceans and lakes", said Becky Timmons, global technical director of Alltech Algae.


Alltech's solutions for aqua consist of natural, nutritional solutions tailored to address challenges impacting modern aquaculture production and profitability, providing customers with an advantage in the competitive marketplace.


"Aqua Nor is the perfect opportunity for Alltech to continue to actively expand its Norwegian operations in the agriculture and aqua industries. We aim to be the number one choice for Norway's farmers, whether they are on land or at sea", said Charlton.
