BIOMIN Announces Premix Facility Opening in Viet Nam

06 September 2013

VIET NAM - BIOMIN has announced the opening of its latest state-of-the-art premix facility in Binh Duong, Viet Nam.

Several “green” features have been adopted in this new facility, in line with the NutriEconomics® concept of BIOMIN—achieving sustainable yet profitable farming in animal nutrition.

Planning for a grand opening on 2 October 2013, the 4.7 ha premix plant will be fitted with a micro dosing system and house a laboratory with several cutting-edge technologies, including a liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry (LC-MS/MS) system.

Since its inception in 1997 in the Asia Pacific, the business of BIOMIN has grown steadily in the region, especially in the Vietnamese market. At the World Nutrition Forum held in 2012 in Singapore, BIOMIN promoted the concept of NutriEconomics®– achieving sustainable yet profitable farming in animal nutrition.

In keeping with the NutriEconomics® concept, walls of the new facility are built of autoclaved aerated concrete blocks to conserve energy, and solar panels are also fitted to produce energy for the plant.

BIOMIN places a strong emphasis on providing quality solutions and excellent customer service. It has invested extensively in the laboratory services at Binh Duong, with the purchase of a LC-MS/MS system.

“This will enable BIOMIN to provide the highest possible level of nutritional and mycotoxin analytical services for its customers. On top of that, the LC-MS/MS will also support the BIOMIN Mycotoxin Survey Program, strengthening the position of BIOMIN as the market leader in this field," says Jan Vanbrabant, CEO Asia Pacific, BIOMIN.
