With a production capacity of of 3,000 metric tons a month, the modern line focuses on high quality extruded feed for tilapia and other local fish species to meet the increasing demand for floating fish feeds.
It will also help Cargill Vietnam further access customers in Hanoi, Ha Nam, Thai Binh and the north-central region where farmers are rapidly switching from extensive to intensive farming practices.
Cargill products also enable farmers to raise healthy fish, increase their output, and lower their production costs while reducing impact on the environment.
Vietnam is an important market of Cargill, said Chad Gauger, managing director of Cargill Aquaculture Nutrition Asia South. The inauguration of the sixth plant in Vietnam demonstrates Cargill strong growth not only in Vietnam, he added.
The first aqua feed line was set up at Cargill Bien Hoa Plant in 1998. Currently, Cargill Vietnam has more than 2,000 staff working at 23 its units across the country.
