Victam International general manager and former feed mill owner, Henk van de Bunt, said that sales for the FIAAP, Victam and Grapas Asia 2014 trade shows continue to increase thanks to the shows' focus on ingredients used in animal feed and petfood. The shows will be held April 8-10, 2014, in Bangkok, Thailand.
According to van de Bunt: "A successful animal feed production plant, petfood plant or aquafeed feed plant require(s) different components. These include qualified and reliable staff, investment, professional management, etc. But you also need additional important ingredients, these are a safe and healthy working environment, well-constructed premises, good processing equipment, reliable and up-to-date ancillary equipment, a range of feed formulation programs, and of course, the right and most cost efficient ingredients and additives. In this way you should be able to produce the best possible product for your clients."
The show manager says the shows have seen a significant rise in the number of international companies looking to exhibit, as well as attend the range of technical conferences being offered.
Co-located with the FIAAP, Victam and Grapas Asia tradeshows will be Petfood Forum Asia. This conference for petfood industry professionals around the world will take place April 9, 2014, in Bangkok.
