Hamlet Protein, a multinational producer of soy-based protein ingredients for young animals, participated in a series of events dedicated to swine nutrition and feed technologies across China to solidify its presence in the Asia-Pacific

The company’s APAC operations are headquartered in Qingdao, China and in recent years has invested strongly in building a team of commercial and technical managers alongside the establishment of a distribution network. 

The 5th Sow Nutrition Conference was held in Chongqing, and focused on technological innovation in swine nutrition, with interesting insights on antibiotic-free production, feeding management and cost control. The event was well attended by representatives of integrators, farms and breeding companies. Hamlet Protein addressed the importance of protein in swine nutrition, the role of fatty acids in sow feed and fibre’s influence in driving gut health.

The 10th Leman China Swine Conference also took place this year in Chongqing. The event saw more than 10,000 attendees and became the first conference on animal husbandry to surpass the attendance threshold. Representatives of Hamlet Protein engaged with industry professionals and academics on piglet nutrition, the role of fermented fibre in breeding animals and the role of vegetable protein in ASF prevention.

Organised in Hamlet Protein’s home town of Qingdao, the Kunpeng Feed Technology Conference attracted a large group of technical feed mill managers, nutritionists and researchers. The technical and commercial team from Hamlet Protein attending the conference focused on discussing the strategic approach to using vegetable proteins in an anti-biotic free diet.

Dr Yu Feng, regional director APAC of Hamlet Protein, commented, “These conferences provide us with a great opportunity to share our knowledge and latest insights from our global operation with the Chinese swine industry. Our European colleagues have been working with a restriction on AGP use for many years and are currently facing a ban on ZnO as well. At Hamlet Protein we have developed a range of products that can provide practical solutions when formulating diets with these restrictions, and we notice a growing interest from Chinese producers.”
