Victam Asia: Bigger and more to see

For industry executives going to Bangkok next month for Victam and its affiliated trade shows and their supporting technical conferences they will find an even bigger event, in fact 17% bigger.

Now there are three trade shows within the event and there are bigger exhibition stands with even more to see, to touch, to discuss and learn about.
Henk van de Bunt, Victam’s General Manager said: “Now all three shows are fully sold out so there are more exhibitors with a greater range of products being exhibited.
“At our FIAAP show there will be ingredients and additives used within animal feeds, aquafeed and petfood on show. Visitors to FIAAP will see major international companies at the show, for instance Addcon, Adifo, Kemin, Kemira, Orffa, Vitamex and many, many more.
More machinery
“Then there is Victam”, Van de bunt continues, “this year there is far more equipment on the show floor, pellet mills, extruders, hammer mills, coolers, mixers and so much more. Visitors will see major companies like Buhler, CPM, Wenger, Triumph, Muyang, Zhengchang, Andritz, Schmidt Seeger etc.
“Again these and other companies have increased the size of their stands so as to show more of their feed processing technology and systems.
“There is also an area of Victam which I have not mentioned, this is Biomass. This is an expanding industry and you will find at the show probably the largest collection of companies, with their equipment, that can pelletise organic matter into biomass pellets for use as an alternative energy source, as well as new technology from companies like Satake and Charoen Pokphand.
Food connection
“Lastly, but equally important, we have a new show GRAPAS. This is a specialist show for the grain industry.
“On show you will find companies from all over the world who specialise in the technology for rice and flour milling, industrial noodle production, breakfast cereal and extruded snack manufacture and of course grain storage, preservation, transportation and processing.
“Buhler has a separate stand at the show just for these products, and there are many other international companies displaying the latest technology and specialist ingredients and preservation – Ocrim, F.H. Schule, Kemin, Zhenchang, Muyang, Extru-Tech and again more.
Ancillary equipment
“But I have left out an important section of our exhibitors, those that work in a number of diversified industries. You will find a lot of companies that supply dryers, magnets, conveyor belts, silos, bucket elevators, quality control systems, formulation programs, and so much more”, Van de Bunt ends.
More information can also be found on the Victam website, with a list of exhibitors and online free registration for visitors to the exhibition and for the conferences (not all free).
