VICTAM Asia is Asia Pacific’s largest exhibition of equipment, technology and ancillary systems required for the production of feed for animals, aquafeed and dry petfood and biomass pellet production, said the organisers.

The organisers are hosting the leading animal feed processing show in Bangkok again, after the earlier edition held in 2014 was a success. There were more than 6,000 industry executives from South and Southeast Asia that attended the show.

This year, VICTAM Asia will be supported by the Thai Ministry of Agriculture & Co-Operatives, Thai Department of Livestock Development, Thai Rice Exporters Association, Thai Chamber of Commerce, Thailand Convention & Exhibition Bureau, Thai Department of Fisheries, Thai Feed Mill Association, Thai Petfood Association, Thai Rice Milling Association and Thai Rice Packers Association.

Organisers also emphasised on the co-located shows FIAAP Asia 2016 and GRAPAS Asia 2016. FIAAP Asia 2016 is the only specialist exhibition and conference for the ingredients, additives and formulation of feeds for animals, aquafeed and dry petfood for the expanding Asia Pacific markets. This show directly relates with VICTAM Asia 2016 as it profiles animal feed production equipment and technology.

GRAPAS Asia 2016 is the only trade show in the Asia Pacific region for rice and flour milling systems, grain processing, storage, preservation and distribution, industrial noodle and pasta production, the manufacture of breakfast cereals and extruded snacks. Animal feeds require grains as a base for their production – this shows the synergy between the three shows and why GRAPAS Asia is co-located with VICTAM Asia.

In addition to the three main shows, visitors can expect a host of forums and conferences that will highlight the latest developments in the field of agribusiness. Petfood Forum Asia 2016, the Aquafeed Horizons Asia 2016, GRAPAS & Global Milling Conference Asia 2016, the 2nd ASEAN Feed & Rice Symposium and GMP+ are a few of the special conferences attendees can look forward to. A series of technical seminars will be organised by the exhibitors with a wide range of subjects.

The Federation of ASEAN Feed Milling Associations, which was formed in 2014, will convene again next year, where members will discuss and help determine future policies and objectives, in addition to looking at trading and financial implications of the impending ASEAN Free Trade Zone.
