Enzyme solutions available to nutritionists, pork producers and others looking to optimize nutrition will be expanding as the result of a strategic collaboration between Novus International and Verenium Corporation.

The partnership is the result of Novus’ focus on enzyme solutions to optimize nutrition and the resulting feed costs in production livestock, with the highest performing quality solutions.

Novus International, a company with more than 20 years of experience in the animal-nutrition market, is committed to the enzyme and fermentation business.

“Our partnership with Verenium will allow us to work together to develop and commercialize a suite of new enzyme products for the global animal-nutrition and health market,” says Thad Simons, Novus International president and chief executive officer. “These products will give us the ability to offer new solutions to the performance challenges our customers face.”

“The enzyme business is perfectly aligned with Novus’ mission to make a clear difference in sustainably meeting the growing global demand for animal nutrition,” says Gary Hayen, Novus global business director of fermentation products.

Combining the strengths of two industry leaders builds on Novus’ existing enzyme offering and knowledge of animal nutrition with the strength of Verenium’s world-class enzyme biotechnology. The collaboration will add to the track record of success that enzymes have in providing critical solutions in the livestock sector.
