De Heus opens 5th feed factory in Vietnam

Animal feed company De Heus opened a new feed factory for pigs, poultry, cattle, and aqua in northern Vietnam on Friday, March 27.

The latest addition is the 5th feed factory for De Heus in Vietnam. It is located in Vinh Phuc province, at 50 km from the country’s capital Hanoi.

De Heus invested US$30,000,000 in new animal feed plant

Government officials from Vinh Phuc province and the Ambassador of the Netherlands, De Heus’ employees, partners, and around 1,400 customers witnessed the official opening of the fifth De Heus feed factory located at Binh Xuyen Industrial Park. With a total investment of US$30,000,000 and the production capacity of 400,000 tonnes per year, the factory is expected to follow the success of the Hai Phong factory in Northern Vietnam. This will greatly strengthen De Heus’ market position in the region. The Vinh Phuc factory will contribute to the total production capacity of De Heus to 850,000 tonnes per year.

Equipment imported for new animal feed plant

Integrating the most advanced infrastructure, the new factory will meet international quality standards. To achieve this, De Heus has imported equipment and machinery from Europe and America. It has a well-equipped laboratory that strictly controls all raw materials and finished products.

Gabor Fluit, general director, said, “This high-end facility will enable us to produce high quality animal feed to exceed our customers’ expectations. It will sustain our leadership in the animal feed sector and contribute to development of the agricultural sector in Vietnam.”

New feed plant has dedicated piglet feed line

The new factory has been set up as a four-in-one production facility with a dedicated piglet feed line, a separate aqua feed line, its own bulk loading station and one line for other animals.
