FoodScience, whose brands include VetriScience and Pet Naturals, is acquired by Wind Point Partners.
FoodScience Corp., a family-owned manufacturer of VetriScience and Pet Naturals nutritional supplements, has been sold to the private equity firm Wind Point Partners. Terms were not disclosed.
FoodScience, founded in 1973, also makes nutritional supplements for the human market under the brand name DaVinci. The company is headquartered in Williston, Vermont.
Wind Point Partners reported that FoodScience CEO Sharon Rossi remains in charge.
“FoodScience is a very strong competitor in the human supplements market with its long history of quality, efficacy and safety. It is a pioneer in the animal health industry, formulating animal supplements and treats,” said Paul Peterson, Wind Point’s managing director. “We look forward to working with Sharon and the entire FoodScience team in further building the brands and private-label business to execute on our value-creation plan.”
Wind Point owned pet products maker Petmate from 2011 to 2017. The Chicago firm acquired Targeted PetCare, a manufacturer of animal litter and bedding products, in 2018.
