Darling International Inc. (NYSE: DAR) today announced that it has completed its acquisition of VION Ingredients, a division of VION Holding N.V. (a member of the VION Food Group), for approximately €1.6 billion in cash. VION Ingredients is a worldwide leader in the development and production of specialty ingredients from animal origin for applications in pharmaceuticals, food, feed, pet food, fertilizer and bio-energy. Headquartered in Son en Breugel, the Netherlands, VION Ingredients' global network of facilities on five continents covers all aspects of animal by-product processing through six brands including Rendac (rendering), Sonac (proteins, fats, edible fats and blood products), Ecoson (green power), Rousselot (gelatin), CTH (natural casings), and Best Hides (hides).

Ok – DAR just went truly international and basically doubled in size… using debt and a secondary authorization of shares to make it happen. As the recent trio of acquisitions start to show up in the financials, it will be interesting to watch… oh, and remember Diamond Green Diesel? That’s up and running too… though I’ve seen very little news about that (or about the heat exchanger issues they’ve been dealing with) recently…
