Brazil is the third largest producer of complete feed in the world and has a population of about 210 million people.
Neovia has been established in the country since 1970 (manufacturing and marketing of complete feed) and occupies leading positions on the complete feed (free market), aquaculture, petcare (3rd market leader in the country), and horse feed markets.
The company has been rapidly expanding in Brazil for fifteen years. It has very good coverage and has sought to gradually strengthen its products and services offer: acquisition of a premix company, strong development in petcare (acquisition of Total Alimentos in 2014), rapid development of its analysis laboratories activity, strong acceleration of its presence in aquaculture and horse feed, and strengthened position in additives & ingredients (2016).
Beyond nutrition for livestock, Neovia currently has strong positions in petcare in Brazil (2nd largest market after the United States) where the company offers a broad range of products and services (standard to super premium) and has world-class manufacturing and research facilities as well as a strong distribution network.
The company also holds strong positions in aquaculture and is accelerating its investments in the field: construction of a micro-extrusion plant in Descalvado (Sao Paulo), opening of an aquaculture research centre, and acquisitions. Neovia has confidence in Brazil’s aquaculture potential and has made it one of its major development areas.
