Barentz finalises acquisition of Agrinutrition

Barentz announces it has completed the full acquisition of AgriNutrition, specialised in the trading and distribution of raw materials and ingredients for the animal feed industry.

In light of these new developments, Barentz has appointed Paul Verboeket as Vice President to lead its (European) animal nutrition activities. AgriNutrition’s founder and former shareholder Alfred Jansen retired from the business on October 1st and will remain involved on a consulting basis. Marcel Lagerwaard – commercial director AgriNutrition – will be responsible for all trading activities of the animal nutrition business.

Barentz and AgriNutrition have seen strong growth in the Animal Nutrition industry. Alfred Jansen comments: “The developments in the Feed and Pet Food industry are interesting and there are ample opportunities to develop the business.  Over the years, AgriNutrition has developed a growing position in this market in Europe, leveraging its strong portfolio in amino acids, proteins, and specialty ingredients like yeast cultures.  I have full confidence in the capabilities of Marcel Lagerwaard and his team to successfully lead the trading activities for Barentz Animal Nutrition and AgriNutrition in the future. I would like to thank all customers  for their trust and loyalty, and I am fully convinced that in this new set up they will receive  the same outstanding service as they have always been used to”.
