Novus International Published on 28 June 2011

The enzyme solutions available to nutritionists, producers and others looking to optimize nutrition in poultry, pork, beef, dairy, aquaculture and companion animals will be expanding as the result of a strategic collaboration announced between Novus International, Inc. and Verenium Corporation.

The partnership is the result of the focus Novus has on generating enzyme solutions to optimize nutrition – and the resulting feed costs – in a number of production livestock species, as well as companion animals with the highest performing quality solutions.



"Our partnership with Verenium will allow us to work together to develop and commercialize a suite of new enzyme products for the global animal nutrition and health market,” notes Thad Simons, president and chief executive officer of Novus International.

Combining the strengths of two industry leaders builds on Novus' existing enzyme offering and knowledge of animal nutrition by offering the strength of Verenium’s world class enzyme biotechnology. PD
