KINGSPORT, Tennessee

To meet a growing demand for gut health solutions in the animal nutrition industry, Eastman and Sanluc have entered into a global commercial partnership.

With more than 20 years of industry experience, Sanluc is a leader in the functional feed additives market and a pioneer in developing calcium butyrate-based products. The partnership covers its gut health portfolio and reflects Eastman's commitment to offer specialty solutions to the animal nutrition industry.

Combining these products with Eastman's organic acid-based feed additive solutions, the partnership creates an extended portfolio that will help feed and feed raw material producers reach performance targets in preservation, hygiene and gut health. Customers can expect wider access to products, support from Eastman's regional technical teams and a growing number of global proof points through Eastman's application development expertise.

This is the first step in Eastman's journey to expand its offerings of gut health solutions.
