Deal will expand the global specialty ingredients market for Adisseo
Adisseo has completed its acquisition of Nor-Feed, a French group that designs, produces and markets plant-based specialty ingredients and plant extracts for animal nutrition.
This acquisition, announced in December 2022, is part of the Adisseo Group’s strategy to become one of the world leaders in specialty ingredients for animal nutrition.
The Nor-Feed project is focused on the preventive role of nutritional strategies, using botanical extracts from agricultural co-products in animal nutrition and hygiene to limit the use of antibiotics, coccidiostats and pesticides.
“This investment is a key step in our strategy to develop specialty ingredients, in particular through unique and differentiating technologies and natural and sustainable solutions for our customers,” said Jean-Marc Dublanc, CEO of Adisseo. “Adisseo is positioned in an emerging market, growing at nearly 10% per year.”
Nor-Feed, based in the Angers Technopole (France), was created 20 years ago by Pierre and Cecile Chicoteau. Nor-Feed will continue to autonomously manage its research and development, production and sales network. Olivier Clech and Pierre Chicoteau will continue to lead the company.
