Bluestar Adisseo has completed its takeover of Nutriad, with the deal officially marked by a tree planting ceremony to start the growing relationship between the two companies.

The confirmation of the merger of the two feed additive operations, first  announced late last year, saw a team from Adisseo visit Nutriad’s Dendermonde, Belgium headquarters to develop an agenda for the next steps. At the end of the two-day meeting, Erik Visser, Nutriad chief executive and Adisseo CEO Jean-Marc Dublanc plant a tree together watched by a broad group of employees. 

Mr Visser commented: “Upon the conclusion of this kick off meeting, I am happy to note the positive energy and enthusiasm across both teams on the opportunities that the combination of Nutriad and Adisseo will bring to our companies, teams and customers. As the kick-off meetings marked the start of the integration process, today’s planting of a tree symbolizes putting down roots and future growth,” he concluded.
