KINGSPORT, US: Eastman Chemical Company announced that it has acquired 3F Feed & Food, a European leader specializing in the technical and commercial development of additives for animal feed and human food. Terms of the transaction were not disclosed.

Located in Spain, 3F's business and assets are expected to strengthen and support continued global growth of Eastman's animal nutrition business and will become part of its Additives & Functional Products segment.

"With the acquisition of 3F Feed & Food, Eastman adds a respected producer that is well-established in one of the leading European markets," said Sabine Ketsman, vice president and general manager, care chemicals and animal nutrition. "Their proven track record of providing value-added solutions to the market, combined with Eastman's unique technology capabilities and global footprint, will accelerate development of next-generation solutions and strengthen our ability to better serve our customers all over the world.”

"This acquisition includes a strategic expansion to our product and solutions portfolio, a first-rate production facility and an experienced team, which strengthens our ability to comprehensively solve our customers' challenges through customized solutions," said Sandeep Bangaru, general manager, animal nutrition. "With 3F, Eastman will extend our specialty product portfolio in animal nutrition gut health for swine and poultry and increase our application development capabilities, both of which will enable us to accelerate growth of key markets and customers."

In addition, with global sustainability trends creating the need for higher farm productivity, reduced emissions and a shift away from antibiotic growth promoters and other materials of concern in diets, 3F's portfolio of specialized organic acid derivatives and phytogenics are well positioned and proven to help customers adapt and to deliver improved animal productivity and resiliency.

"As we integrate with Eastman, the future of 3F Feed & Food is greatly strengthened by both the attractive business expansion and growth opportunities across Europe," said Juan Galvez del Hierro, 3F chief executive officer.

"The combination of Eastman's chemical expertise, together with 3F's R&D skills and vast experience with specific applications in animal nutrition and health, will increase the product offering of new molecules that can be successfully deployed to a market that is in continuous search of new solutions to enable sustainable animal health and productivity," said del Hierro.
Included in the acquisition is 3F's product portfolio of food and feed additives, a state-of-the-art production facility located in Avila, Spain, in-house application and development capabilities, and technical service capabilities.
