Alltech Vietnam receives ISO certification
Global animal health and nutrition company, Alltech, recently earned an ISO 22000:2005 certification for its plant in Dong Nai, Vietnam.
“Alltech is dedicated to having every facility certified to the highest standards,” said Matthew Smith, Alltech’s Asia-Pacific director. “Consumers demand total traceability and total transparency from their suppliers. Alltech is leading this trend and in doing so, will achieve our goal of exceeding our customers’ expectations.”
A higher national target for livestock population growth and increasing demand for better meat quality, presents huge opportunities and challenges for the feed industry in the coming years.
“Operating under our strict AQS quality control system, which exceeds global standards and regulations, we can ensure that we are at the forefront to provide the technologies and quality assured solutions our customers need in order to address these future challenges,” added Steve Bourne, Alltech vice-president. “The facility will provide added flexibility allowing a greater tailored customer approach in what is one of Alltech’s fastest growing countries globally.”
Alltech began operating in Vietnam in 1994 and officially opened a representative office in Ho Chi Minh City in 2000. After steady development, Alltech Vietnam moved to Dong Nai in 2006, where it expanded its operations and built the production plant, which includes a state-of-the-art solid-state fermentation facility. The region is now supported by four full-time operation technicians who provide on-site quality control.
