De Heus Myanmar opened a new aquafeed production facility in Myanmar that will produce affordable high-quality feeds.

“We are very proud to open our third factory in Myanmar, only three years after the opening of our first animal feed mill near Yangon and the second feed mill near Mandalay last year,” said Arno Willemink, managing director of De Heus Myanmar.

This new facility allows the company to produce more than 200,000 metric tons of aquafeed each year and is situated in Myaung, close to Yangon. With the opening of the new factory, the company said that they are now able to respond to the growing demand for its aquafeed.                                                      

Willemink said that “the production of animal protein in Myanmar is developing rapidly. Currently, the goal is to provide our customers with high-quality feed products, advices and support that enable them to further professionalize their farms and find new markets for their products.”

Koen de Heus, CEO of Royal De Heus, said that “we take pride in the advancement of our customers in a way that enables them to grow their business while at the same time reducing their impact on the local environment. The usage of floating feeds, for instance, lowers water pollution which in turn supports the health of the fish and accelerate growth leading to better proceeds for local farmers.”

“As a family owned company, we value our contribution towards the development of the agricultural sector. Our on-the-farm approach enables us to tailor our advice to the local circumstances of the farmer. It allows us to support farmers in the process of growing their business which is why it’s such an honor that we are able to open our third facility in Myanmar,” adds Gabor Fluit, group director Asia Royal De Heus.
