Wisium, part of ADM international feed premix brand, is expanding in Vietnam with the acquisition of Golden Farm Production & Commerce Company Limited (GF). According to an ADM spokesperson, “Golden Farm produces a complete range of vitamins and minerals premixes for swine, poultry, ruminants, fish, shrimp, frog and pets. Formulations are standard or customised. There is also a comprehensive range of natural, nutritional solutions to improve animal performance. Combined with the offerings of ADM’s Wisium brand in Vietnam, producers will gain a complete offering of macro and micro premix, nutritional specialties, WEAN UP piglet feed, and science-backed services such as laboratory analysis.
With the acquisition, Wisium also gains access to GF facility in Long Khanh Dong Nai which meets international safety and quality standards.
Wisium range of products were launched in Vietnam not more than 2 years ago. Franois Fernandez, Vice President, Wisium Premix and Services said, “We’ve been expanding Wisium capabilities around the globe, and we are excited to continue to invest across Southeast Asia. Vietnam has the 5th largest feed market in the region. It is also one of the world’s top pork consuming countries.”
ADM now has strong presence in Vietnam with 5 animal feed production sites namely 2 in Binh Duong Province, 1 in Ha Nam Province, 1 in Dong Thap Province, and 1 more in Dong Nai which has just been acquired.
Vietnam is one of the largest market in ASEAN for the animal husbandry industry, and is expected to continue to grow and become more integrated and competitive. The recent African Swine Fever (ASF) pandemic has resulted in the sector transitioning to more large scale farming with better biosecurity measures.
