Cargill has sold its Provimi business's Zootech brand and French veterinary sales division to Bimeda, a leading manufacturer and distributor of veterinary pharmaceuticals and animal health products.
The terms of the agreement were not disclosed. The transaction closed 20 December, 2013, with the transfer effective 1 January, 2014.
The sale of this sales division in France is consistent with Cargill Animal Nutrition's strategy of sharpening its focus on its core animal nutrition solutions and premix activities and concentrating on product lines where it can bring the most value to customers.
The two firms have agreed that Cargill's Provimi business will continue to manufacture ruminant bolus products for Bimeda, activities that are core to Cargill's animal nutrition business in France.
