Martek Supplying EFAs to Hero

COLUMBIA, Md.—Martek Biosciences signed a multi-year agreement with Lenzburg, Switzerland-based Hero, an international consumer foods company, to serve as Hero’s exclusive supplier of ARA (arachidonic acid) and DHA (docosahexaenoic acid) for infant formula and children’s dietary products. Two of Hero’s subsidiaries—Semper and Beech-Nut—have existing licensing/supply agreements with Martek.

Ethan Leonard, vice president of pediatric nutrition, Martek, said: “This new agreement with Hero is another important step in Martek’s effort to expand its international presence in the infant formula market. We are pleased to be working with Hero and believe this agreement again demonstrations that companies around the world continue to recognize the importance of adding Martek’s trusted sources of DHA and ARA to products for infants and children.”
