DOWNERS GROVE, US/ AND SAO PAULO, BRAZIL: Univar Inc (UNVR) said that its wholly owned subsidiary Univar Brasil Ltda has acquired the stock of Tagma Brasil Ltda (Tagma).

Tagma is a leading provider of custom formulation and packaging services for crop protection chemicals that include herbicides, insecticides, fungicides and surfactants.
