Ocean Harvest Technology Limited of Ireland, the technology and manufacturing company responsible for the OceanFeed™ brand of proprietary blended seaweed products, and Barentz International, a leading  provider in the animal nutrition industry, headquartered in the Netherlands, announce today that they have reached agreement for Barentz Animal Nutrition to formally act as a distributor for OceanFeed™ in much of Europe.

The proprietary formulae of the OceanFeed™ branded products combine multiple species of brown, green and red macroalgae (seaweed) specially selected for their bioactive benefits including intestinal health balance, nutrient uptake and partial replacement of other feed ingredients. OceanFeed™ sustainable and natural products have been shown to improve feed intake, increasing performance, weight gain, and fertility in livestock while allowing producers to reduce or remove antibiotic growth promotors. Next to this, OceanFeed™ products added in pet food for companion animals, have been proven to increase energy levels and stamina, as well as making the fur more shiny and soft, mainly as a result of the natural minerals in the seaweed.

Ocean Harvest Technology will partner with Barentz Animal Nutrition, who have been serving customers in the feed industry for over 60 years, to deliver blended macroalgal products for the Swine, Bovine, Petfood and other segments. The two companies will work together in various geographies including Germany, Italy, UK, Ireland, and Spain to improve animal health and nutrition to help serve customer needs.

Graham Ellis, CEO of Ocean Harvest Technology said: “Ocean Harvest Technology’s products have been gaining traction in the US and Europe, particularly in the Swine and Bovine segments. The addition of Barentz to represent us as a partner in certain critical European markets will allow even more producers to benefit from these innovative feed ingredients.”

Tim Lemeer, Managing Director of Barentz Animal Nutrition said: “We are very excited to be able to offer our clients the natural sea weed blends from the Oceanfeed™ product range, with all the positive effects it brings to animal health. We strongly believe in these sustainable and innovative solutions, and are convinced that our cooperation with Ocean Harvest Technology will be a great contributor to the continued growth of our business.
