De Heus Myanmar has opened its second feed production site in the country. Located on 26,000 square meters near Mandalay in upper Myanmar, the factory has an annual production capacity of 280,000 MT of feed for a variety of livestock, including fish.
The new feed mill was built to increase production capacity, which has reached its limit at the De Heus mill in Yangon, open since October 2016.
“For several years, De Heus Myanmar has had a sales warehouse in Mandalay to flexibly supply customers in the region,” stated Johan van den Ban, Managing Director of De Heus Myanmar. “Based on growing demand, the identified high potential and our company’s commitment to our local customers, we decided to invest in this new factory quite soon after opening our first factory back in October 2016. We hope that this new production facility will enable us to support the livestock farmers even better.”
During the opening ceremony, Van den Ban said: “This production facility is the most modern compound feed plant in Myanmar. The new equipment from top European feed milling suppliers includes a hyper modern packing robot and extensive bulk storage solutions. To monitor the quality of incoming raw materials and outgoing finished products, a state of the art laboratory will make a big contribution to future farming demands. I am particularly proud that by investing in a 516 kW rooftop-based Solar Energy system, which is able to produce 663 MWh of renewable energy per year, we will save 1.5 MT of CO2 emission. The steam consumption of this factory is generated by renewable fuel sources as well. We hope to encourage other investors to continue investing in renewable energy as well.”
