“Understanding the processes of feed production is crucial for our students, so the new feed mill will be an invaluable training tool to improve their technical knowledge and our national industry,” he added.

Vietnam is an important and growing market for specialist animal nutrition, driven by an increasing demand for safe and healthier food, according to Dr. Jan-Olaf Barth, Vice President for Evonik Nutrition & Care, Asia South. “We welcome the opportunity to contribute to the development of a sustainable food production value chain through a close partnership with local research institutions and our customers,” stated Dr. Barth.
