About the deal

FRAmelco Group, a family-owned multinational group headquartered in The Netherlands, operates 3 plants located in The Netherlands, Spain, and Thailand. Most of FRAmelco sales are made of Glycerides (short and medium chain fatty acids) to maintain animal in good health and to improve animal performance and Lysolecithins to improve feed digestibility. FRAmelco’s industrial footprint, its product range, its technologies, the species addressed, and its target markets are highly complementary to Adisseo’s. It will allow the combined business to implement integrated solutions and offer even more value to customers who want to reduce antibiotic usage and enhance animal resilience.

Adisseo is one of the world’s leading experts in feed additives. The group relies on its 10 research centers and its production sites based in Europe, USA, and China to design, produce and market nutritional solutions for sustainable animal feed.

In 2019, Adisseo achieved a turnover of over 1.44 billion Euros.
