Wilbur-Ellis Company and Canadian Bio-Systems Inc. have announced a joint marketing agreement for the distribution of feed enzymes into the U.S. market. Wilbur-Ellis, a marketer and distributor of animal feed ingredients in North America and Asia-Pacific, penned the agreement with CBS to begin distribution in March.
For Canadian Bio-Systems, a manufacturer of products utilized in feed, food and industrial applications, this presents an opportunity for further geographic expansion into the U.S. livestock market and potentially into Asia-Pacific in the months ahead. “We recognize Wilbur-Ellis’ reputation and professional presence in the feed industry, which makes this partnership an excellent fit to enhance our market reach and service to the livestock sector,” said Owen Jones, president of Canadian Bio-Systems.
Jones also noted that Canadian Bio-Systems would bring value and efficiency to Wilbur-Ellis’ livestock portfolio, ultimately benefiting many of Wilbur-Ellis’ poultry and swine customers in the U.S. Canadian Bio-Systems, a company that provides manufacturing solutions to the feed industry by focusing on science and technology, coupled with Wilbur-Ellis’ marketing expertise and local knowledge of the U.S. livestock market, formulates an ideal partnership that presents significant opportunities for both companies. “We’re working diligently on growing our livestock portfolio of ingredients as we are increasingly seeing a demand from our poultry and swine customers for ingredients that bring value to their operations,” said Ron Salter, president of Wilbur-Ellis’ feed division.
Wilbur-Ellis will be marketing and distributing a range of Canadian Bio-Systems products tailored to benefit specific livestock sectors.
