JOHNSTON, Iowa, May 15, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Biova® LLC, the leading supplier of water soluble egg membrane, has finalized an agreement with Maypro Industries® to be the preferred distributor of Biova's ingredient portfolio in Japan and Taiwan.

"Maypro is a proven industry leader," said Matt Stegenga, Biova's director of sales and marketing.
