Commenting on Neogen acquisition of Diessechem, Steve Chambers – Neogen managing director for its European operations, said: “Italy has traditionally been a strong market for our food safety products, and we believe it continues to hold excellent growth opportunities for that segment, as well as our animal health, and genomic products and services.

“Our operations across the United Kingdom have allowed us to serve our direct customers and more than 30 distributors throughout the European Union with easily accessible inventory and increased support. Adding Diessechem’s distribution network in Italy to our European operations will further strengthen our presence in the EU.”
