De Heus is opening the US$8 million expansion of its aqua feed factory in Vinh Long, Vietnam, which will increase the factory's capacity from 30,000 tons a year to 100,000 tons a year and help strengthen the company's position in the aqua feed market.

The upgrade will serve the growing aquaculture market in the Mekong Delta and produce feeds for pangasius, tilapia, snake head fish and fingerling, according to De Heus. "This enlargement of our aqua feed factory in Vinh Long shows our commitment for the aqua market in Vietnam in general and in the Mekong Delta in particular," said Gabor Fluit, general director of De Heus Vietnam. "We are committed to supplying our customers with high-quality feed and supporting them in further developing their business."

De Heus LLC now has four production locations in Vietnam, with animal feed factories in Binh Duong, Dong Nai and Hai Phong and the aqua feed factory in Vinh Long.
