On November 19, 2019, Archer Daniels Midland Company (NYSE: ADM) celebrated the opening of its latest livestock feed plant located in Hoa Mac, Ha Nam province, Vietnam.
The new facility is strategically located near northern Vietnam’s key farming region and is close to port facilities. Built on 4.6 hectares of land, the new facilities include a production area, three warehouses for storing raw materials, and finished goods, offices, and a loadout bay with ample space for customer trucks.
“We are very proud of our new facility in Hoa Mac, which will allow us to better serve our customers as we continue to improve our operations,” said Matthieu Garnier, ADM’s operations vice president for Animal Nutrition.
The plant will produce feed mainly for swine, as well as for poultry and rabbits. It offers industry-leading technology, including a modern pneumatic transfer system for raw materials to avoid cross-contamination and handling of bags, fully automatic control, as well as a biomass boiler to provide a renewable energy source. Besides, it offers an automated micro-dosing system to ensure accurate nutrient content in products and an automatic bagging line and palletising robot to maintain the highest quality and traceability standards.
“The livestock market in Asia is growing rapidly, particularly in Vietnam, where the export of livestock and aquaculture products provides plenty of opportunities,” said ADM Animal Nutrition President Pierre Duprat. “With 25 years of experience in the country, our latest animal feed plant in Hoa Mac allows us to further strengthen our industrial and commercial coverage in the key Vietnamese feed market and continue to grow.”
