De Heus Buys Feed Compounding Facility from ADM
Evialis Galicia, Sada, Spain, produces 50,000 tonnes of compound feed annually
Royal De Heus has signed an agreement to acquire Spanish compound feed plant Evialis Galicia from Archer Daniels Midland Co. (ADM).
With a volume of more than 50,000 tonnes of compound feed annually, Evialis Galicia has a leading regional position in northern Spain.
The acquisition is consistent with De Heus’ strategy to strengthen its position in the large Iberian animal feed market.
Evialis Galicia, located in Sada (near A Coruña), was founded in 1974 by a collaboration of pig farmers to produce feed for their own sows.
Currently, the company offers a complete assortment of compound feeds for multiple animal categories, with a focus on feed for dairy cattle and rabbits.
The activities and market approach of Evialis Galicia and De Heus are highly consistent with each other. Like De Heus, Evialis Galicia focuses mainly on the open feed market.
Within this market, both De Heus and Evialis Galicia sell their products to farmers directly as well as via a dealer network.
