Danisco Announces Price Increase for Animal Nutrition & Health Solution, Betafin®

WILMINGTON, Del., June 29, 2018 – Danisco Animal Nutrition, a division of DuPont Industrial Biosciences, announced an 8 percent price increase for its Betafin® range of products, due to supply constraints as well as increased demand from some applications. This price increase is effective immediately.

Betafin®, part of DuPont’s suite of animal nutrition and health solutions, is a natural betaine derived from nongenetically modified sugar beet. Proven to increase lean meat yield and reduce costs for producers by reducing choline chloride and methionine in feed formulations, Betafin® also alleviates the negative effects of osmotic stress. It is a critical component of producers’ efforts to maintain gut integrity, which in turn, positively impacts animal welfare and performance.

All existing contracts will be honored.
