Pizzey’s existing management team, headed by Linda and Glenn Pizzey, will remain with the business, which is headquartered in Manitoba, with an additional sales and distribution facility in Gurnee, Ill.
The company recently launched a milled flax/fish oil combination product, MeadowPure 03 Ultra, which allows the incorporation of omega-3 fatty acids in many food applications where it was previously difficult to use omega-3s from fish oil sources alone.
“The health benefits of omega-3’s are well known to the consumer and this acquisition marks Glanbia’s entry into a complementary sector that is exhibiting strong growth. Pizzey’s innovation in combining milled flax/fish oil is indeed a breakthrough as omega-3’s from fish oil can now easily be incorporated into a range of food applications. The acquisition of Pizzey’s is another step forward for Glanbia Nutritionals, and we welcome Linda and Glenn Pizzey and their team to Glanbia,” said Jerry O’Dea, C.E.O./president, Glanbia Nutritionals Americas, Monroe, Wis.
