Nutreco aims for more acquisitions

02-04-2007 | |

Dutch feed company Nutreco is talking with potential take-over targets, with aggregated sales of more than €1 billion.

The feed company’s strong financial position provides an excellent basis to focus on growth by means of acquisitions in animal nutrition and fish feed.

The company focuses on autonomous growth as well as on mid-sized and larger acquisitions in growth markets and take-over targets that will contribute to the consolidation of existing market positions.

In the past two years, Nutreco already acquired feed specialities businesses in Japan, Mexico, Russia, China, India and the Netherlands.

In Brazil, Nutreco established a new feed specialities production facility. In February 2007, Nutreco announced the takeover of BASF’s premix businesses in Poland, Italy, USA, UK, Mexico, Guatemala, China and Indonesia.

Nutreco expects to acquire more premix, speciality feed and fish feed businesses.
