March 2020— Ft. Wayne, IN. — Artemis International has signed a distribution agreement for the U.S. with Fruit d’Or (Villeroy, QC, Canada). Under the terms of the agreement, Artemis will be the preferred U.S. distributor for Fruit d’Or’s line of organic and conventional cranberry and blueberry ingredients for nutraceutical applications for both animals and humans.
