Singapore, 6 October 2011 - Animine, a global supplier of value-added sources of trace minerals for animal nutrition, today announced a new distribution deal with NutriSpices to support the launch of ZinPot and development plans in the Vietnam market.

Over the past year, Animine has established an excellent reputation among its global customers with ZinPot, a specialized and unique form of zinc oxide.  Manufactured under a patented process, ZinPot potentiates the known effects of zinc oxide in the post-weaning phase of the piglet.

“We look forward to building upon this new partnership with NutriSpices as we launch ZinPot to the important market in Vietnam,” said Stéphane Durosoy, founder and CEO of Animine.  “With the support of NutriSpices and its strong distribution network, we can now offer customers in Vietnam, ZinPot, a high performance zinc oxide which has proven to be cost effective and highly beneficial in the post-weaning phase of the piglet.”

Philippe Serene, founder of NutriSpices said, “There is a growing demand for a high efficacy, safe and environmentally friendly zinc oxide product. With ZinPot and its known benefits, we know this demand can be met as we bring this novel zinc source to help customers get enhanced performance and returns from their investment.”

“This new partnership will reinforce the commitment of Animine to the Asia market,” said David Saunders, CEO of LinkAsia Partners. “NutriSpices has a professional team with an in-depth understanding of the Vietnam livestock market.  We have no doubt that NutriSpices is a strong distribution partner with the expertise and experience to make ZinPot a successful product in this important market.”
