By Liza Mayer
Fish farmers in Myanmar may now have greater access to affordable aquaculture feed with the opening of a new production facility by animal feed manufacturer De Heus Myanmar.
De Heus Myanmar celebrated the opening of a dedicated aqua feed production facility in Myanmar on November 25th. The modern production site will give aqua farmers access to the affordable high-quality feeds needed to further improve the development of their farms, the company said in a statement.
“We are very proud to open our third factory in Myanmar, only three years after the opening of our first animal feed mill near Yangon and the opening of our second feed mill near Mandalay last year,” said Arno Willemink, managing director of De Heus Myanmar.
With capacity to produce more than 200,000 metric tons of aqua feed each year, the new De Heus facility is located in Myaung Dagar near Yangon and many aquaculture farms, responding to the increasing demand for aqua feed.
“The production of animal protein in Myanmar is developing rapidly. Ultimately the goal is to provide our customers with high-quality feed products, advices and support that enable them to further professionalize their farms and find new markets for their products,” Willemink added.
