Vilomix Holding A/S has acquired the majority shareholding in Tegasa, a Spanish premix producer.

Founded in 1965 and owned by the founding family and some of its employees, Tegasa produces vitamin and mineral mixes and supplementary feeds for the pig, cattle and poultry sectors.

While having a strong brand within the Spanish market, it operates internationally as well, noted Vilomix. It is present, directly or through its distributors, in several markets in Europe, North Africa, Southeast Asia and the Middle East.

Headquartered in Barcelona, Tegasa recorded turnover of around €12m in 2020; the company’s workforce comprises 30 employees.

The Spanish premix producer’s factory is located in Valls, Tarragona. That facility is fully automated with its own laboratory, while the production processes employed adhere to FAMI-QS and ISO 22000 quality standards, said the Danish buyer. 

Growth strategy, synergies 

Peter Iversen, CEO of Vilomix Holding, which is owned by Danish Agro, Agravis and Vestjyllands Andel, said the acquisition fits in perfectly with its strategy of growth and it ambitions in terms of its positioning in premix production in southern Europe.

There are significant synergies between Tegasa and Vilomix in terms of product development and animal nutrition expertise, he added.

Iversen also stressed that Vilomix brings Danish expertise around husbandry and genetics to the mix, with a huge percentage of the two million sow population in Spain descended from Danish pig breeds, which should help strengthen Tegasa’s position in the Spanish market.

Vilomix, which was established in 1979, now employs over 500 staff in Denmark, Norway, Sweden, Finland, 

Vilomix feed

Latvia, Poland, Serbia, Romania, Russia, Ukraine, Vietnam and China. The group consists of nine factories and three sales divisions. As well as premix and vitamin activities, it produces concentrates, milk replacers and hygiene products for farmers and the feed industry.
