Lallemand Acquires SA Bioproducts

Lallemand has acquired SA Bioproducts, located near Durbin, South Africa. SA Bioproducts produces lysine for the animal feed market and, in collaboration with Amino GmbH of Germany, supplies isoleucine for the human pharmaceutical market. This acquisition firmly establishes Lallemand’s position as a leading supplier to the human and animal feed markets in South Africa: Lallemand purchased Anchor Yeast in South Africa in 2006 and owns 50% of Vitec, an animal feed company in Johannesburg.
