Skretting is building a new factory in Vietnam as part of its commitment to aquaculture in the country and the broader southeast Asia region.
Due for construction this year, the new €24m factory will supply the growing market with an annual capacity of 100,000 tonnes, enabling effective feed supply to key farming provinces in the Mekong delta and beyond.
“With a mission and commitment of bringing good solutions to farmers and contributing to the sustainable development of aquaculture in Vietnam, Skretting Vietnam is dedicated to leveraging our global resources to offer a complete value proposition for our customers,” said Bui Thuy Tien, General Manager of Skretting Vietnam.
Vietnam became part of the Skretting family in 2010 through the acquisition of fish and shrimp feed company, Tomboy Aquafeed JSC, opening its latest factory in 2017. The new factory will be located next to Skretting Vietnam’s facilities in Thuan Dao Industrial Zone, Long An, alleviating pressure on the existing factory which is at full capacity.
“This new factory in Vietnam is a logical and necessary step towards strengthening Skretting and Nutreco’s position as a global competitor in Asia,” said Therese Log Bergjord, Skretting chief executive. “We have a very solid growth strategy, matched with the huge potential of the sector.”
