Thailand feed producer gets nod for Ecuador exports
INVE Thailand – a subsidiary of Benchmark Holdings – has become the first company in Asia to be awarded a certificate to export its Artemia cysts, feed and health products into Ecuador. It will now be used as a reference in the region for other companies seeking similar certificates, according to a company press release.

The announcement came after three full days of audits by COTERI (Technical Commission for Import Risk, Ecuador) at INVE Aquaculture’s factory in Thailand.
The certificate, valid for four years, was presented by Ecuador’s Minister of Aquaculture and Fisheries, Ana Katuska Drouet, and Daniel Carofilis, sub-secretary of Aquaculture and Fisheries, during a ceremony at INVE’s office in Bangkok.
The minister commented on the high standard of operations at the factory, which will now be used as a benchmark for other companies applying for a similar certificate in the future, the company said.
“We are proud of the dedication of our management team and staff in Thailand. This is not only a milestone achievement for INVE and Benchmark, but also the next step towards a more efficient supply chain and enhanced service for our customers in Ecuador,” Philippe Léger, CEO of Benchmark’s INVE, said.
“Working closely together with ambitious aquaculture entrepreneurs worldwide, INVE is privileged to witness many successes, innovations and breakthroughs. We look forward to working with producers in Ecuador to share and develop concepts, best practices and technologies to drive the growth of their business and the industry as a whole.”
