Dutch animal feed company De Heus Animal Nutrition has opened its first factory in Myanmar. With this new facility, the company wants to further strengthen its position in Asia.

The new plant has a capacity of 120,000 tons, but at a later stage this capacity can be increased up to 240,000 tons. With its location in the immediate proximity of Yangon, the factory is strategically located in relation to the major local agricultural arias.

De Heus Myanmar will focus mainly on the poultry sector (biggest sector in size), but also in the pig and cattle sectors De Heus sees ample growth opportunities. To move their customers forward and to support them in the further professionalization of their local livestock businesses, De Heus organises knowledge seminars and training courses for their customers, concerning feeding strategies, livestock farming and stable management.

Johan van der Ban, General Manager Myanmar says “We are very pleased with our brand new factory. Our sole objective is to provide farmers with the best quality feed, nutritional and farm management knowledge. We have helped farmers to increase their productivity and scale their farm. In this way we support farmers in realising the highest possible conversion of feed into animal proteins and optimise business results.”.
