fenaco is consolidating its small animal feed business in UFA AG
Feed supplier UFA is absorbing the Biomill small animal feed business. The Biomill dog and cat food business will, however, be discontinued and the Biomill company will cease trading at the end of 2019. Both UFA and Biomill are subsidiaries of fenaco cooperative.
Biomill generates around 60 per cent of its annual net revenue of approximately 10 million Swiss francs from small animal feed (rabbits, poultry, cage birds, pigeons). From this division, those activities that fit with the core business will be transferred to the feedstuff manufacturer UFA on 1st January 2019. This will include, in particular, poultry feed and rabbit food.
Biomill makes the remaining 40 per cent of its net revenue from dog and cat food. This division will be discontinued at the end of 2018.
The Biomill production site in Herzogenbuchsee will close at the end of 2019 and its activities will be absorbed into the neighbouring UFA Biblis compound feed works. The Biomill AG company will then cease trading at the end of 2019.
Some of Biomill’s eighteen employees will continue to work for UFA AG. For the remaining employees, individual solutions will be worked out within the fenaco-LANDI Group over the course of the next few months, including five redundancies to be announced.
This development has no direct effect on the LANDI shops. They will be informed in due course of the forthcoming changes concerning Biomill dog food by the sales and marketing organisation LANDI Schweiz via the usual information channels.
