ADM to acquire Deerland

Nov 2, 2021

Global food ingredients giant ADM announced today it will acquire Deerland Probiotics & Enzymes, significantly expanding its capacity in microbiome-targeted ingredients. In a press release, ADM said the acquisiton is continuation of an ongoing strategy, which has seen the Chicago-based firm expand probiotic manufacturing at a facility in Spain as well acquire Protexin and Biopolis. It’s part of move to take a bigger share of what ADM says is a massive global maket for health & wellness products. “The microbiome represents one of ADM’s six strategic growth platforms, and  ​with global demand for health and wellness products estimated at more than  ​$775 billion, today’s investment represents a significant step forward for  ​ADM,” ​said ADM Chairman and CEO Juan Luciano. “Deerland Probiotics &  ​Enzymes is a leader in probiotic, prebiotic and enzyme technology, with global  ​sales and manufacturing in the U.S. and Europe, and is a perfect fit for our  ​growing portfolio of functional ingredients and solutions for health-conscious  ​consumers. We expect the addition of the Deerland capabilities and portfolio ​to deliver synergies for our Health & Wellness business and support growth ​across our Nutrition business unit.” ​ Among ADM’s earlier forays into supplement ingredients was a deal to bring an algal DHA to market ​​. That has now blossomed into a full line of omega-3 ingredients from algae and flax ingredients.
