Brenntag, the global market leader in chemicals and ingredients distribution, announces a new and exclusive agreement with Corbion Animal Health for the distribution of ALOAPUR in the Animal Nutrition & Health industry in Belgium, The Netherlands and France. ALOAPUR, containing lactylates as active ingredient, targeting Gram positive bacteria, is an essential part of the Total Concept of Brenntag Animal Nutrition to ensure better performance and healthier animals. This new agreement is an important next step and reinforces the collaboration between both companies, which are already working together in the Life Science segments Food, Pharma and Cosmetics.
Brenntag is producing premixtures for the Animal Nutrition and Pet Food industries. These products include premixtures to preserve ingredients against yeast or moulds, prevent contamination of bacteria, stimulate animals’ gut health, prevent oxidation of fats and oils, or create solid solutions of liquid ingredients. All this leads to a reduction of feed waste. The products thus contribute to the company’s sustainability ambition to increase resource efficiency in the whole value chain.
“We look forward to extending our good working relationship and experience into an exclusive cooperation as of January 2022 in Corbion’s unique product in the animal nutrition markets in Belgium, The Netherlands and France. ALOAPUR is a perfect fit to the Brenntag Animal Nutrition portfolio as it helps the animals in controlling gram positive bacteria like Streptococcus and Clostridium and hence maintaining a better (gut) health. Our customers will benefit greatly from our combined technical expertise and our ability to assist with innovation and product development,“ states Bart Gaeremynck, Business Manager Animal Nutrition for Brenntag in Benelux and France.
“This new partnership will enable Corbion to extend its presence to nearly full market coverage as well as seeing a number of new customers being serviced efficiently by the dedicated Brenntag team. Joining forces this way promises to become a successful path for the benefit of both partners as well as their customers,” said Nico Kors, Global Sales Director Corbion Animal Health.
