Wilbur-Ellis announced on Tuesday it has acquired US-based feed company Rangen, particularly for its potential to open up the aquaculture sector for the animal nutrition giant.

Rangen has been in the aquaculture and feed production industry for over 90 years, owning several feed producing facilities focused on aquaculture. With the acquisition Wilbur-Ellis will be acquiring two plants in Idaho, as well as an aquaculture feed plant in Texas.
