Martek supply deals

This article was originally published in The Tan Sheet

Executive Summary

Swiss firms Hero Group and Hochdorf Nutricare will use docosahexaenoic and arachidonic fatty acid only from Martek Biosciences in their food products, the supplier says. Hero will add Martek's oils to its infant formula products, weaning foods and medical foods for dietetic purposes, while Hochdorf will market formulas with Martek's ARA in China and Europe. The agreement with Hero is another step to expand Martek's international presence in the infant formula market, says Ethan Leonard, VP of pediatric nutrition for Columbia, Md.-based Martek. The firm also has supply deals with Hero subsidiaries Beech-Nut and Semper, which use DHA and ARA for infant formulas sold in Finland, Latvia, Lithuania and Sweden (1"The Tan Sheet" Aug. 22, 2005, In Brief)
