GERMANY - Animal nutrition company BIOMIN finalized the acquisition and integration of the German based phytogenic feed additive and feed flavorings company MICRO-PLUS. This acquisition adds to BIOMIN's proven expertise in phytogenics and its passion for providing innovative and trendsetting solutions to its customers.

On 15 June 2012, BIOMIN successfully acquired German based phytogenic feed additive and feed flavorings company MICRO-PLUS. This acquisition serves to enhance BIOMIN's steady growth in the market and proven expertise in the field of growth promotion and feed flavoring.

Building on the existing strengths of the two companies, BIOMIN is setting the pace once again, this time in the field of phytogenics. BIOMIN's strong research and development capabilities are now combined with extensive know-how in functional plant ingredients and essential oils. In addition, BIOMIN's global network will strengthen access to markets while allowing for an extended technical support to customers worldwide.

"MICRO-PLUS is an excellent acquisition, which will add to BIOMIN's extensive competence in phytogenics an additional 27 years of know-how, along with an experienced team of professionals working to provide the best possible solutions for our customers," says Dr Tobias Steiner, Director Competence Center Phytogenics within BIOMIN.

Digestarom®, the new product range that completes BIOMINs phytogenics portfolio, is a perfect fit to the existing product range. In addition to its well-grounded technical and science-based formulation, Digestarom® has a proven and well-documented efficacy, with numerous scientific and field studies backing this up.

“It is the strong scientific background, the expertise and the global sales network which makes me believe that BIOMIN is the best company to take these products to the next level,” says Randolf Nott, founder and former CEO of MICRO-PLUS.

In addition to its new optimized product portfolio in phytogenics, BIOMIN also provides a complete range of aromas and sweeteners.
