Last 5th of March at Co Chien Industrial Zone, in the Vietnamese province of Vinh Long, the Dutch company De Heus organized the grand opening ceremony of its new shrimp feed mill. Spanning an area of 29,300 square meters, De Heus Vinh Long Shrimp Feed Mill has an annual capacity of 50,000 metric tons, featuring five production lines exclusively dedicated to shrimp feed products. Leveraging cutting-edge technology imported from Europe, the entire production process adheres rigorously to international quality standards such as ISO 22000, Best Aquaculture Practices (BAP), and Global GAP.

According to the company, the establishment of the De Heus Vinh Long Shrimp Feed Mill underscores the commitment of De Heus to long-term, strategic investments in the production of highly effective shrimp feed, facilitated by a dedicated, state-of-the-art manufacturing facility.

“We strongly believe in the growing demand for shrimp. To support shrimp farmers, we provide high-quality feed, knowledge transfer and access to markets. We acknowledge challenges like climate change and disease outbreaks. Therefore, we are committed to sustainable practices and environmental protection through innovative technologies for the future of Vietnamese shrimp aquaculture,” said in his speech Co de Heus, CEO of Royal De Heus Group.
