Devenish Nutrition Limited And Agrolabo SpA Agree Exclusive Distribution Agreement For The Italian Territory

Devenish Nutrition Ltd, a leader in the animal nutritional sector with a high technological and research driven focus have, over the past 13 years built up a range of innovative speciality products.

Agrolabo SpA, who specialise in the zootechnical sector, will use their 15 nutritional specialists to disseminate these in the Italian market. Agrolabo will initially distribute Lipidol, DeviGuard and NatuPro, with the potential for additional novel products to be added to their portfolio in the future.

“At Devenish we believe the Agri-Food sector can only progress by investing in research, focusing on major issues that influence performance and sustainability. Through this agreement our research and products will be efficiently disseminated into the Italian market” Dr Marian Scott, Research Nutritionist, Devenish Nutrition.
