Lallemand buys yeast plant V&S Distillers

Lallemand announces the recent acquisition of Grenaa's yeast and molasses alcohol factory, in Denmark, from V&S Distillers, leader of the Northern European spirits market. The acquisition will strengthen Lallemand's yeast production capacity to respond to the growing needs of the industry for probiotics.

For V&S Distillers, the move is part of the group strategy to focus on its core business, which is the production, marketing and sale of branded spirits. Grenaa's yeast plant employs today a staff of around 80 people and has been registered as De Danske Gærfabrikker A/S.

Lallemand and V&S have cooperated for many years, and, Grenaa yeast plant, which answers the highest European quality standards of the feed industry such as FAMI-QS and ISO 9001, has already been producing specific live yeast and yeast extracts for our animal nutrition applications (Levucell®SC, Levucell®SB, Alkosel®R397).
