Allied Nutrition Becomes Exclusive Distribution Partner for BioZyme in South Africa and Neighboring Countries

BioZyme® Inc. announces a new distribution agreement with Allied Nutrition for South Africa and the Sub-Saharan countries including Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe, Zambia and Kenya.

 “The relationship between Allied Nutrition and BioZyme goes back a while, as Provimi appointed Allied Nutrition to oversee the distribution of Amaferm® previously,” explains Volker Altenbokum, Director of International Business Development at BioZyme. “We are happy we can now partner directly with Allied Nutrition.”

Amaferm is a feed additive that impacts intake, digestibility and absorption of nutrients in an animal’s diet. Amaferm is a research-proven, precision-based prebiotic that is created from a select strain of Aspergillus oryzae. The addition of Amaferm to Allied Nutrition’s portfolio is a very special moment for Rudolf van der Veen, Owner and Managing Director of Allied Nutrition.

“We put a lot of effort into Amaferm and were very impressed by the results. Now dealing directly with BioZyme opens us many more possibilities to serve our valued customers. We have designed a very progressive strategy to recover the customers we served before,” van der Veen said.

“It is amazing to see how much more technical expertise and research was added to Amaferm over the last years. The support that BioZyme is adding to the product is outstanding, and we will surely profit from this. The focus on intake, digestibility and absorption brings a new angle of arguments for and supports and explains the good results we had seen in the past,” emphasized Frans Hagg, Technical Sales Manager at Allied Nutrition.

“The outreach that Allied Nutrition has will accelerate the application of Amaferm in multiple species. Allied Nutrition’s portfolio of products underlines the market reputation. We are very grateful for this opportunity” said Lisa Norton, President and COO of BioZyme. “The region will play an important role in our International Expansion Strategy.”

 BioZyme, a global company, has been in business for 70 years. The company reaches a market of customers throughout the U.S., Canada, South America, Asia, Europe, Africa, and the Indian Subcontinent.

BioZyme® Inc. Announces Partnership with Japan Nutrition Company

BioZyme® Inc. announces its newest international partner is Japan Nutrition Co., Ltd. Japan Nutrition will serve as a marketing partner, helping to provide the Amaferm® advantage to its customers in Japan.

“We were very impressed by the team at Japan Nutrition Company. Their dedication and experience in the field of feed additives, as well as their outreach to the Japanese market, will help us to satisfy the growth expectations in this very interesting market for BioZyme,” said Volker Altenbokum, BioZyme Director of International Business Development

Japan Nutrition Co. is highly linked to the marketplace and has a dedicated marketing team for additives while carrying additives of the highest reputation, making them a logical choice for a marketing partner for Amaferm, a precision-based prebiotic designed to enhance digestibility by amplifying the nutrient supply within for maximum performance. They are also one of the biggest premix manufacturers in Japan.

“Amaferm has a very good name in the market. With the help of Japan Nutrition Company, we will broaden the scope of application quickly.
