Evonik introduces new feed mill in Vietnam

Evonik 30Germany-based global provider in specialty chemicals Evonik and Vietnam’s Nong Lam University have developed a new state-of-the-art feed mill to produce pelleted trial feeds

The feed mill aims to research trials and provides a valuable resource to foster the technological advancement of a more sustainable feed industry in the country.

Dr Alfred Petri, senior vice-president sales animal nutrition at Evonik, said that Evonik would work with the university to explore new concepts and feeding technologies for the future needs of the local industry.

“The feed mill is also open to other companies that wish to test their products,” he added.

The facility, which took two years to complete, will help tackle challenges facing the animal feed production industry in Vietnam.

“Vietnam has some very specific challenges as they are on the edge of moving away from antibiotics toward antibiotic-free production, which may lead to adaptations in the feed production process,” said Dr Petri.

“The country is an important and growing market for specialist animal nutrition, driven by an increasing demand for safe and healthier food.”

Located at the Nong Lam University campus in Ho Chi Minh City, the facility will produce mash as well as pelleted feed for research trials and is designed for handling various small batches, while minimizing cross-contamination. As well as providing a basis for better research, the feed mill will also be a valuable teaching resource for students and teachers at Nong Lam University.
