Skretting has opened a new state-of-the-art shrimp feed plant in Vietnam as part of its drive to develop aquaculture across the country and the broader Southeast Asia region.

The dedicated aquaculture feed plant has been constructed and opened in the Mekong Delta by Skretting Vietnam to help the country’s fast-growing shrimp farming sector reach its full potential.

Samson Li, managing director of Nutreco Asia, Skretting’s parent company, said: “Building this new state-of-the-art plant in Vietnam underlines the strong commitment that we have long shown to our customers in this very important country.”

“This investment will be a vital contributor to the progress of Vietnam’s aquaculture industry and meeting the dietary needs of its fast-growing population. We shall continue to provide you with all the knowledge and support that you will need to take this industry forward into a new golden age.”

The new 23,000 square metre facility, which has an initial annual capacity of 60,000 tonnes of feed, is located within the Thuan Dao Industrial Zone, Long An, for the convenience of local customers as well as to make best use of the transport links to other important farming provinces in the Mekong Delta.

It will house a special system to produce Skretting’s unique functional health feed for shrimp, Lorica, which is specially designed to safeguard them against challenging phases in their lifecycle, including transfer and handling.

Vietnam became part of the Skretting family in 2010 through the acquisition of Tomboy Aquafeed JSC, a Vietnamese fish and shrimp feed company.
