Hamlet Protein participates in feed exhibition in China

Hamlet Protein CAHE2020 2Hamlet Protein, a multinational producer of soy-based protein ingredients for young animals, participated in the 17th China International Animal Husbandry Expo (CAHE) which took place in Changsha from 4-6 September

CAHE was the first major feed industry exhibition to welcome nutritionists and veterinarians from integrators, feed mills and premixers, as well as academics from across China, after months of travel restrictions due to COVID-19. About 1,200 companies exhibited at the show, which attracted more than 140,000 visitors.

ASF, the recent heavy rains and flooding, and COVID-19 have severely affected the swine industry in China. This will lead to an estimated decline of around 15% in pork production by 2020. The production shortfall is partly offset by increased imports. The prices of piglets continue to rise due to a shortage of piglets.

“We are happy that we are once more able to interact in a face-to-face setting with our customers. CAHE is a great platform to build relationships and jointly work with customers towards providing alternatives for long-standing practices without compromising the quality or profitability of the production process,” commented Dr Yu Feng, regional director APAC at Hamlet Protein.

Shortages in pork supply help drive demand for poultry. Additional demand will come from a further recovery in foodservice. However, as an increase in production is foreseen for H2-2020, prices for poultry are not expected to shift much.

“The Chinese government has announced its intention to eliminate the use of antibiotics in livestock feed. The implementation of this new policy is directly impacting the feed industry. At the CAHE, we noticed an increasing interest in our highly digestible soy protein specialities. As our company was founded in Denmark, one of the leading countries in piglet production, we are in the position to share insight on how the feed industry can still formulate effective diets without the inclusion of antibiotics.” concluded Dr Feng.
