Volac has acquired Micron Bio-Systems, the UK based bio-science solutions company.

Micron Bio-Systems makes and sell silage additives, mycotoxin remediation, nutraceuticals and environmental products at its sites at Bridgwater, UK and Virginia, USA.

Micron also has a state of the art, UKAS certified, testing facility for mycotoxin determination in feedstuffs.

“This acquisition is the latest development in our ambitious growth plans at Volac,”​ said David Neville, MD, Volac Animal Nutrition. “The acquisition has a strong strategic fit with all elements of the Volac Animal Nutrition strategy which is based on advancing sustainable livestock production efficiency through technical leadership.”

Volac said the addition of the Micron products will strengthen its ability to serve and develop feed additive applications for a rapidly changing industry. A new area for the UK dairy nutrition company, it said a feed additive business would provide a platform for new product development and allow for greater alignment with future industry challenges, such as improving rumen microbial fermentation, efficient production and reducing emissions.

In terms of its animal nutrition portfolio, Volac is well established in terms of young animal nutrition, feed fats and forage preservation products.
