The Adisseo Group announces that it has completed the acquisition of Nor-Feed, a French group that designs, produces and markets plant-based specialty ingredients and plant extracts for animal nutrition.

This purchase is part of the Adisseo Group's strategy to become one of the world leaders in specialty ingredients for animal nutrition.

Jean-Marc Dublanc, CEO of Adisseo:"We are pleased to have completed the acquisition of the Nor-Feed Group, and on behalf of Adisseo, we extend a warm welcome to all its employees.

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. Adisseo is positioned in an emerging market, growing at nearly 10% per year."

Olivier Clech, co-CEO of Nor-feed:"The botanical additives for animal nutrition that Nor-Feed has developed are safe, effective and manufactured in France in a structured CSR framework. The demand is strong, and our average annual growth of more than 20% since the creation of the company is an illustration of this.

The entire Nor-Feed team is very committed to continuing this development.

The Nor-Feed project, created 20 years ago by Cécile and Pierre Chicoteau, 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.
Nor-Feed maintains its organization and will continue to serve its customers directly, while benefiting from the services, support and expertise of the Adisseo Group to help achieving its objectives and implementing the synergies identified.
