Nuscience acquires Metachem Nutrientes in Brasil
Nuscience has acquired the company Metachem Nutrientes, active in the development, production and sales of high-quality feed additives in Brasil. This acquisition is the first foothold of Nuscience in this large and high-potential market.
With an own production of both powder and liquid feed additives, Metachem Nutrientes is an excellent asset for the Functional Feed Ingredients business unit of Nuscience. The company has a production site in Itupeva, close to Sao Paulo. Metachem Nutrientes was part of the Metachem Group which is trading high-quality raw materials for several industrial segments since 25 years. With this acquisition, Nuscience is further realizing its growth strategy based on both innovation and presence in emerging markets.
‘We are delighted to close this deal with Metachem Nutrientes,’ says Patrick Keereman, CEO of Nuscience Group. ‘We have been looking for opportunities to get an own foothold in South America, specifically in Brasil, because of its high potential today and in the future. Metachem Nutrientes fits perfectly with our ambitions to grow in the feed additives segment. We are looking forward to work together with their high qualified local team.’
