In September 2017, Egeria, alongside the founders and management, acquired a majority stake in IQI.

IQI is a worldwide supplier of premium ingredients to the top brands in the pet food industry. The ingredients are created from by-products from the food processing industry. IQI oversees the entire value chain and is seen as a co-creator of certified premium pet food ingredients. Because of its close partnerships with suppliers, IQI can guarantee that its products are 100% pure and traceable to the source. Examples of IQI’s products include lamb meal, duck meal and potato flakes.

In January 2018, IQI acquired Smit & zoon Functional Oils. The Functional Oils division is a global player in marine oils and for years has been IQI’s preferred supplier of processed Omega-3 fish oils.
