Evonik has announced it will begin working with Perdue AgriBusiness to market its probiotic GutCare, which supports a more balanced intestinal microbial population in the gut of poultry species and other monogastric animals.

Perdue AgriBusiness sources, merchandises and processes agricultural commodities. It also offers a diverse portfolio of products including grains, oilseeds, soybean meal, blended feed ingredients and top-quality seed oils for food and other uses.

The agreement for the US market starts a close technical cooperation between the two companies, and commercial activities are expected to begin immediately.

Ken O’Halloran, Vice President North America, Evonik, said: “This cooperative relationship will allow us to leverage the expertise of both companies to bring higher value offerings to our customers.”

George Betton, Vice President, Perdue AgriBusiness, added: “Our goal is to help customers prosper with flexible, forward-thinking solutions for agriculture-based products. We are excited to be working with Evonik to provide the best solutions for our customers.”
