Royal De Heus signs joint-venture with Nutrifarms

24 Aug 2012

Royal De Heus signed an agreement on 24 August 2012 regarding the forming of a joint-venture between De Heus and the Brazilian company Nutrifarms Ltda by the acquisition of a majority interest in Nutrifarms Ltda.

De Heus considers the forming of this joint-venture to be a key strategic step. With this step De Heus gives substance to its goal of further expanding the product portfolio and to work on building a leading position in the internationally very important Brazilian market for animal feed and nutritional supplements. The founder of Nutrifarms, Henrique da Silva Passos, will continue to be very closely involved in the company and views the acquisition as an important impulse for further growth.

Nutrifarms, driven by its quality philosophy, has experienced spectacular growth over the past 14 years. The company is one of the market leaders in the field of pig concentrates, premixes and nutritional specialties. Nutrifarms believes there are still excellent opportunities for further growth in adjacent product categories and customer groups. De Heus is the ideal partner for Nutrifarms in terms of jointly realising this further growth.

With its more than 100 years of knowledge and experience in the animal feed market, De Heus further enhances our nutritional knowledge and enables us to continue to develop much faster,” says Henrique da Silva Passos. Read more.
