Barentz, a leading global distributor of life science ingredients has acquired Sevecom, a specialist in emulsifiers with its own developed and patented solutions for animal nutrition.

Headquartered in Milan, Italy, the company has a prominent home-market position. The acquisition of Sevecom is aligned with Barentz’s strategy to become a global leader in life science ingredients and to further expand its animal nutrition solutions.

“Since starting our company in 1978, we have always invested in knowledge, via our well-experienced team of nutritionists and technicians, in order to really make the difference for our customers,” Sevecom founders Nazzaro Serino and Enrico Pigorini said. “To continue this success, we have had to scale up and find a partner with a wider international network that facilitates our growth. In Barentz, we have found just the right partner to continue our journey. They have the same passion for animal nutrition as us, and they know what partnership means to a family-owned business.”

According to Hidde van der Wal, chief executive officer of Barentz, the acquisition perfectly fits in Barentz’s portfolio for animal nutrition. “Sevecom has a very strong position with patented emulsifiers. Together with our animal nutrition team and our global network, there will be new opportunities to offer added value to all feed industry customers. We are excited to begin this new journey together with this specialized Sevecom team that will remain responsible for the day-to-day business,” he said.

Sevecom is a specialist in emulsifiers for the animal nutrition market. Established in 1978, the company has been growing in its role as the ideal business-to-business connector in the feed market, delivering emulsifiers, additives and raw materials for the feed industry and for livestock breeding. The company has a leading position in the Italian emulsifier market, with extensions to the Asian market. Sevecom’s small team of specialists is well known for its deep knowledge and technical solutions, delivering products with high nutritional and high technological value at the same time.
