Hamlet Protein continues to focus on bringing its solutions for young animal nutrition and health to Asian customers. With a mix of distribution relationship and local staff operating from China, Vietnam, Philippines and Thailand, support by global technical management, Hamlet Protein is able to understand local market dynamics and translate that into practical solutions for feed mills, premixers, integrators and farmers.
“Hamlet Protein has been investing in Asia in recent months. We have added local technical and commercial resources to be closer to our customers. We are also working in selected markets on introducing our concepts into the poultry segment, building on years of experience and research in piglet and calf nutrition and health,” says Hamlet Protein CEO Erik Visser.
While Covid-19 is affecting the animal protein supply chain across the region, ASF continues to be the mayor reason for concern of hog producers that experience outbreaks in their commercial herds. Where large hog farming companies in China are cautiously restocking, in the Philippines ASF continues to spread within backyard farms on the islands of Luzon and Mindanao. In Vietnam 44 of 63 provinces declared themselves ASF free in Q1.
“These are challenging times for our industry. However we have a long term commitment to producers in Asia and are investing today to strengthen relationships like our partnership with Jebsen & Jessen and build new ones with customers across the region,” says Erik Visser.
“We are pleased to continue our successful partnership with Hamlet Protein and look to the future with confidence,” says Siew Tin Lim, COO at Jebsen & Jessen.
Hamlet Protein produces soy-based protein ingredients for young piglet, poultry and cattle feed at two production plants in Denmark and the US. Hamlet Protein services customers around the world through a network of own sales offices and distributors.
