InVivo Animal Nutrition & Health announced July 17 its acquisition of Vipresa, a premix company based in Mexico.
InVivo, which has a turnover of $1.9 billion, a presence in 18 countries and 5,600 employees, said it is continuing to strengthen its international market positions in key growth areas. As such, it said Latin America remains a priority investment area.
