Combined with Neogen's January acquisition of similar businesses in Argentina and Uruguay, this acquisition in Chile completes Neogen's physical presence in the important agricultural Southern Cone region of South America, which has large beef and dairy populations, along with significant food crops that comprise large exports.
The Chile operations will be managed directly through Neogen's Latin American operations and will offer direct sales of Neogen food safety, animal safety, and genomic solutions into the country. ■
