AB VISTA APPOINTS GARZANTI SPECIALTIES S.p.A AS ITALIAN DISTRIBUTOR

2 November 2015

AB Vista has announced a new partnership with Milan-based distribution company Garzanti Specialties S.p.A, to supply its current enzyme portfolio to the Italian market, including the intrinsically thermostable xylanase Econase XT and modified E.coli phytase, Quantum Blue.

Garzanti Specialties has a well-established distribution network and is seen as a trusted partner for customers across the Italian animal feed industry.

Dr Maria Soto-Salanova, AB Vista’s Business Manager for Italy, says the new alliance is the ideal platform for increasing supply of the company’s enzymes and betaine in the region.

“Garzanti Specialties works closely with its Italian customers to ensure they understand how to make the most of their products – and its feed representatives have strong technical knowledge across both poultry and swine sectors,” Dr Soto-Salanova adds.

Juan Ignacio Fernandez, AB Vista’s Sales Director for West and South Europe, says that the distribution appointment was made as Italy becomes increasingly important for the company.

“With a significant production of monogastric feed, Italy represents a considerable opportunity for AB Vista and Garzanti Specialties. The Italian market is very innovative in terms of enzymes use and this new partnership puts us in a strong position to develop that market even further.”
