Exciting news to end the first half of 2019: btov is thrilled for founders Philipp Schrempp and Tobias Schuele on the sale of a majority stake in foodspring to Mars, Incorporated today, joining forces to build a global targeted nutrition business and pioneer personalized nutrition.

On completion, foodspring will remain a standalone business led by the founders within Mars Edge and be operated out of the German headquarters.
