Spanish company Aplicaciones Biologicas a la Nutricion S.L. (ABN) and the German-based company Leiber are joining forces on the European market for food and feed products derived from brewers yeast.

While ABN, founded in 2000, employs some 50 specialists, Leiber has built up a team of around 250 staff since its founding in 1954. Both family-owned companies specialize in products and ingredients for the food and animal nutrition industries. Both run production and R&D facilities and emphasize the sustainable approach of their products and processes.

“We’re delighted to have found a partner who will enable us to further innovate and broaden our offer of high-quality products for the European market,” said Cesar Perez Abejon, managing director of ABN. “We will continue to distribute our products under the well-established brand name of ABN and keep all our colleagues on board. We are looking forward to a closer cooperation with our long-standing partners of Leiber.”

“The close cooperation of Leiber with ABN will open up many synergies, more than just the sum of its parts. By joining forces, we will be able to broaden our service level and portfolio towards the brewing industry as well as our customers in the European market. With our joint capacities, it will be easier for us to offer innovative products not only for feed and food but also for biotechnology and neutraceuticals,” said Bernd Schmidt Ankum, CEO of Leiber GmbH. “We will both gain with regard to efficiency, innovation and logistical management.”
