Expressing his enthusiasm about joining EW Nutrition, Tesolin stated, “I am really excited to join a company as innovation-driven and science-focused as EW Nutrition.” 

He highlighted the recent launch of Ventar D, a groundbreaking phytogenic designed to enhance animal husbandry results, along with the established brands Pretect D and Activo.
