Feed additives specialist Bluestar Adisseo Company has signed an agreement to acquire FRAmelco Group, a Dutch feed additive company

According to Bluestar, this transaction is part of its strategy to boost specialties growth to become one of the world’s leading suppliers of specialty feed ingredients in animal nutrition. In addition, the company hopes that this acquisition will strengthen its position in the promising Health by Nutrition market segment.

FRAmelco Group, a family-owned multinational group headquartered in The Netherlands, operates three plants located in The Netherlands, Spain and Thailand.

Most of FRAmelco sales are made of glycerides (short and medium-chain fatty acids) to maintain the animal in good health and to improve animal performance and Lysolecithins to improve feed digestibility.

Jean-Marc Dublanc, CEO of Adisseo, said, “The acquisition of FRAmelco is bringing products, solutions and know-how better to address our customers’ current and future needs. Together, we will set up an efficient organisation which will allow us to strengthen our global product portfolio’s competitiveness. We will also mutually benefit from respective strengths and global commercial coverage to better serve customers and capture market growth.”

Lars Snijders, CEO of FRAmelco, commented, “We are excited to become part of Adisseo because both companies are driven by the same ambition – to deliver the most innovative and sustainable feed solutions to customers. We are proud of what we have achieved in recent years, bringing solutions and value to our clients through our Glycerides and Lysolecithins technologies.”
