29 April 2019- Adisseo and Kemin will be ending their distribution agreement for the rumen-protected methionine products Smartamine® and MetaSmart®, and vitamin A product Microvit® A Supra Ruminant in Europe, the Middle East, and Africa.
The two companies have worked together to promote amino acid balancing in dairy nutrition since 2006. The agreement will remain in place until the end of this calendar year, throughout which time Kemin will remain the exclusive distributor of these products.
Going forward, Stefaan Van Dyck, President of Kemin Animal Nutrition and Health for EMENA, states that his company “will focus on further extending its ruminant portfolio in order to offer a full range of nutritional solutions for a sustainable and profitable dairy production.”
Meanwhile, Adisseo’s CEO Jean-Marc Dublanc claims “Moving forward, by strengthening our leadership on methionine, Adisseo’s ambition is to accelerate the development of its specialty business globally. In Europe and the Middle East and Africa regions, it will be the future mission of our fully dedicated and specialized team.”
