Agreement on SoftAcid® technology for the Middle East extended

Brenntag, a world leader in the distribution of chemicals and ingredients, is one of the key partners for the purchase, licensed production and distribution of Borregaard's SoftAcid® technology. Brenntag distributes the Neubacid® Soft products to the European animal feed industry. The adapted agreement now also applies to the Middle East countries.

Wouter Vullings, Marketing Manager Animal Nutrition, Brenntag EMEA: "We are pleased that we can now also distribute Borregaard's SoftAcid® technology in the production of Neubacid® Soft products to our customers in the Middle East. We are committed to providing them with products and services that are safe and of consistently high quality. As organic acids are increasingly used in animal feed, there is a need for an improved and sustainable product without compromising efficiency. SoftAcid® technology and Neubacid® Soft products meet all these needs and expectations and have proven to be an ideal addition to our animal nutrition product portfolio."

Neubacid® Soft products contain lignosulfonic acid, a natural biopolymer of spruce. As an additive, it reduces the corrosiveness of organic acids without reducing efficiency. In addition, Neubacid® Soft provides significant inhibition of bacterial colonisation and a reduction in biofilm adhesion.

Tom Stylo, Business Director Feed Borregaard: "Brenntag, as a proven industry leader, is the right partner to bring the benefits of SoftAcid® technology to the animal feed industry. Brenntag understands the complexities of the animal feed chain and has an experienced team of experts and technicians to develop tailored solutions for customers with our natural, sustainable products. We are delighted that the team is now representing our SoftAcid® technology in the wider region."
