LA MIRADA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--The E.T. Horn Company, a leading national marketer, distributor and manufacturer of specialty chemicals used in a variety of market categories, today announced a new partnership with BioLargo, Inc. (BLGO.OB). The Animal Wellness Division of E.T. Horn’s FoodTech Group will become a master distributor of BioLargo’s Odor-No-More™ family of products in the USA, and will focus on traditional wholesale-to-retail channels.

BioLargo launched the Odor-No-More™ (www.OdorNoMore.com) line earlier this month, coinciding with FoodTech’s own fervent and prolonged push into the animal wellness category. The animal healthcare market has been driven by brisk sales over the past several years and analysts forecast robust sales despite a tough economy.

“We’ve been active in pursuit of opening up channel marketing and product development within this classification,” said Lisa Alley-Zarkades, E.T. Horn vice president. “Our affiliation with BioLargo is one of many tactics we will be incorporating in the coming months.”

BioLargo’s Odor-No-More™ family of products have been critically acclaimed by equine professionals and enthusiasts for creating truly effective odor and moisture eliminators that reduce fly populations, the amount of bedding used and disposed of, and the cost of maintenance, while providing safer and healthier animal facilities.

“After extensive testing and research, we were urged to fill a void in the marketplace,” said Joe Provenzano, BioLargo vice president and product manager. “E.T. Horn gives us the people and the national footprint to deliver products that solve real problems for animal owners.”

Alley-Zarkades concurred: “These earth-friendly products truly outperform anything in the marketplace. They provide a cleaner and drier environment for animals with many additional benefits while potentially reducing maintenance costs for the user. So, by leveraging our distribution breadth, we are determined to educate and familiarize the animal wellness category about these remarkable products.”
