Vietnam on 2 November, saw the opening of Bioplex plant, the first organic mineral production facility in the country
Having an annual production capacity of 7,000 metric tons, the state-of-the-art manufacturing plant is Alltech’s eighth mineral production facility worldwide and has the potential to create 100 new jobs, while being conveniently located to serve local customers and support import/export activity.
Alltech’s Bioplex range of minerals are readily absorbed, stored and utilised by the animal, thereby supporting overall health, immune status and reproductive function. These organic minerials have been supported by more than 21 years of research and offer higher bioavailability to animals than inorganic minerals. Furthermore, producers are able to achieve more with less and mineral excretion from animals through manure is also reduced, thus resulting in less environmental impact.
“Our organic mineral programme reflects our focus on sustainability in all aspects, from the health of the animal and the nutrition of the meat, milk and eggs produced to the economic well-being of the producer and the impact we have on our planet’s land and water,” said Mark Lyons, president and CEO of Alltech. “Our investment in enhancing our mineral production in Asia reflects our confidence in the market’s continued growth and our alignment with our customers’ commitment to better nutrition from farm to market,” Lyons added.
Consistent with its purpose, the production facility in Vietnam was engineered to reduce the environmental impact of production. In addition to this, the facility also utilises the Alltech Q+ (Quality Plus) Programme, a mineral quality control programme unique to Bioplex trace minerals that guarantees quality, safety and performance in every batch.
