Population growth, urbanization and income growth are drivers for accelerated growth of the feed industry in Asia. Even as several countries have been challenged by African Swine Fever in 2019, but still the future looks bright for the animal feed industry in Asia, with a CAGR of around 5% in the next five years.
Concluded Hamlet Protein CEO Erik Visser: “In the past two years we have invested in our own sales organization in China, headquartered in Qingdao, and can clearly see the impact of being close to our customers with talented industry professionals that fully understand the challenges of the local market. We feel strongly about the potential for our solutions in Asia and will focus on swine and poultry. Adding local managers in the Asian key markets, supported by regional and global technical experts, will most certainly allow us to realize further growth in the region.”
