Neovia’s acquisition of Nutrizon Alimentos


TozziniFreire and Candido Martins have advised on the deal

The takeover of Nutrizon strengthen Neovia’s geographical coverage in Brazil as well as its positioning on aquaculture, pet food and ruminants markets.

Nutrizon is a pioneer in animal nutrition in north region of Brazil and its takeover will allow Neovia to take position in a developing strategic region, acquire a consolidated company in aquaculture and pet food, and strengthen its export activity (Peru, Bolivia, Ecuador and others) thanks to the proximity of its facilities with major regional road and river routes.

Nutrizon was created in 2005 in Rondônia. Today, it employs 200 people and has a modern production plant as well as an important branch in Manaus. Nutrizon has experienced strong growth over the past five years and has gradually emerged as a major regional stakeholder in animal nutrition.

The new areas in the north of Brazil have strong potential for aquaculture and livestock products and are ideally located to promote Neovia’s export to neighboring countries. Neovia is already a prominent company in animal nutrition in Brazil and is the first major international group to invest in this region which is not well known but with strong potential.
