NUTRIQUEST announced the formation of a strategic research, marketing and distribution alliance with EURO-NUTEC, a subsidiary of GRUPO NUTEC in Mexico.
Through the alliance, each company will expand its presence in the markets in the U.S., Mexico and Central and South America.
The alliance combines the leadership and research infrastructure of EURO-NUTEC with the research, experience and know-how of the NUTRIQUEST team to offer innovative nutrition solutions to pig producers in the U.S., Mexico and Latin America.
EURO-NUTEC is the joint venture company of NUTEC, an industry leader in pre-starter and starter feeds for piglets and pet food in Mexico and Latin America, and CCPA, the second-largest service company in France, which produces more than 3 million tons of finished feed annually.
The goal for the partnership is to supply special solutions via value-added products and consultancy to U.S. and Latin American swine producers, particularly in the areas of feed and productivity management.
"We believe that the philosophy and culture of both companies are so similar that we expect to offer very soon the expertise that will provide pig producers important elements to increase their productivity," NUTEC Group president Alberto Casarin said.
"This relationship will not only provide high-return solutions to producers but marks the beginning of what will be a long-term relationship and collaboration in the areas of productivity, research and risk management in the industry and will change how pigs are produced in the areas we serve," NUTRIQUEST president Steve Weiss said.
NUTRIQUEST, based in Mason City, Iowa, serves animal producers and believes success comes from helping producers realize improved profitability through optimized animal nutrition programs and efficient operations based on strategic production goals.
