VIET NAM - The 4.7-hectare Biomin premix plant in Binh Duong is the first and only premix facility in Viet Nam to obtain the Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP) according to the requirements of the GMP+ Feed Certification scheme.

Biomin has announced that it has received the Good Manufacturing Practice (GMP+ B1) certification. The certification reaffirms the confidence that Biomin has in the facility to meet the highest standards of the industry.

The certification audit, performed by SGS Vietnam Ltd., confirmed that Biomin Vietnam has attained an overall acceptable level of compliance with the GMP+ B1 Feed Certification scheme in the Feed Safety Assurance module. This encompasses all the recommendations of the Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) in relation to GMP.

The GMP+ B1 Feed Certification scheme requires that the company is compliant with the standards required for the following: quality management, personnel, premises and equipment, documentation, production, quality control, contract manufacturing and analysis, complaints and product recall, and self-inspection.

Dr Jan Vanbrabant, Managing Director, Biomin Asia Pacific said: “We are very proud to be the first premix-producing company in Vietnam to be certified according to the international quality standards of GMP+ B1, which reflects the robustness of our feed safety system. This certificate further confirms the quality and safety of our products, and highlights our commitment to deliver quality products to our customers.”

The premix facility opened its doors in 2013 with a fully-automated production system that has a capacity of 6.5 tonnes per hour in Binh Duong, Viet Nam.
