IMD at the GEAPS Exchange

GEAPS

GEAPS

In just over 5 weeks the GEAPS Exchange is being held in Louisville, Kentucky. The International Milling Directory will be exhibiting and attending this important show. The GEAPS show is for the grain handling, elevator and processing industries. Many of our member companies and organisations will be present, especially from the US market.

 

 

 

Information from the GEAPS Exchange Expo is interesting for all, especially exhibitors and participants:–

‘Exhibitors were so enthusiastic about Exchange 2012 that they signed up in record numbers to exhibit at Exchange 2013, February 23-26, in Louisville. In fact, every one of the record 508 booths on the 2013 floor plan sold out during on-site booth sales—far and away the most booths ever sold during an Exchange. These booths have been reserved by 294 companies, also a new Exchange record!

Lallemand aquires Microbial Developments Ltd.

International Milling Directory‘s member Lallemand aquires Microbial Developments Ltd in new developments for their transatlantic prospects. Microbial Developments Ltd are in Malven, Worcestershire; coincidentally nearby in an adjoining county to the IMD’s publisher’s head office – Perendale Publishers. Lallemand’s product range already goes beyond the scope of the IMD so we will be keeping a close interest in the impact this has in the feed industry.

LALLEMAND

LALLEMAND

Lallemand Animal Nutrition has announced that it has acquired Microbial Developments Ltd, the UK-based manufacturer of Aviguard, effective 31st December 2012.

Aviguard is a well established avian competitive exclusion product that aids the rapid establishment of normal gut flora in day old chicks thereby minimizing colonisation by transient pathogenic bacteria such as Salmonella, E. Coli and Clostridium perfringens. Aviguard is sold in over 36 countries and is widely used in broiler and layer breeders, parent and grandparent stock.

Lallemand has acquired Microbial Developments Ltd from Tim Nelson, who originally purchased the business from Bayer Plc in 1995 by way of a management buyout, and who will continue to act as its managing director. Sue Reynolds, sales and marketing director, will continue to manage Aviguard global distributor relationships and business development.

As part of the transaction Lallemand has also acquired Microbial Developments Ltd’s Aviguard and lactic acid bacteria fermentation plants, packing and R&D facilities located inMalvern,UK.  Under Lallemand’s ownership the business will continue to produce lactic acid bacteria for third party customers from the Malvern facility as well as producing bacteria for Lallemand’s own needs.

Commenting on the announcement, Yannig Le Treut, general manager of Lallemand Animal Nutrition said: “Aviguard is a well established and cost effective competitive exclusion solution used by many of the world’s leading poultry breeders and integrators to help prevent the colonization of the gut by salmonella and other pathogenic bacteria. With ever increasing consumer and regulatory pressures on the poultry industry to minimise the routine use of antibiotics, we believe Aviguard is well positioned for the future and will complement our existing portfolio of poultry products,  which includes Bactocell, Alkosel, Agrimos and Levucell SB”.

Tim Nelson, managing director of Microbial Developments Limited, said: “Lallemand’s investment in Microbial Developments is good news for our employees and customers. Lallemand’s distribution network will complement our existing distribution arrangements for Aviguard, opening new market opportunities. Our lactic acid bacteria and fermentation product customers will benefit from Lallemand’s fermentation expertise, R&D capabilities and depth of production capacity with the Malvern facility joining Lallemand’s existing plants in Milwaukee (USA), St Simon (France) and Montreal (Canada)”.

Canada Grain Act

haccp-engTo modernise agricultural policy and regulation, the Government of Canada conducted several industry consultations in recent years, particularly in areas of the Canadian Grain Commission (CGC) mandate and governance, user fees, producer security, service comportment and standards. On October 18, 2012, the federal government introduced the amendments to the Canada Grain Act (CGA), which was part of Bill C-45, Jobs and Growth Act, 2012. Bill C-45 received the royal assent and became law on December 14, 2012. The last major review of the CGA was done in the 1990s.
.
The agricultural industry generally sees the recent amendments to the CGA are necessary, mainly due to fundamental industry changes experienced during the last 10 to 20 years. For example, the number of primary elevators in Canada decreased to 344 in 2012 from 976 in 1999. Industry consolidation has resulted in a few major grain companies accounting for large shares of grain handling activities at both primary elevator and port terminal levels. Due to the integration of grain handling industry, grain received at port terminals often comes from the primary elevators owned by the same company. In the current system, the CGC will conduct a grading/weighing inspection, although the grain movement is simply within the same company. The CGC inspection services in the case seem redundant to many industry stakeholders. The consolidation of grain handling industry, coupled with the recent removal of the Canadian Wheat Board single desk, has led to the need for changes in agricultural policy and regulation.

A major change is the elimination of mandatory requirements for inward inspection and weighing of grains by the CGC at port terminals and transfer elevators

The amendments to the CGA intend to streamline the CGC operation and eliminate redundant or unnecessary services. A major change is the elimination of mandatory requirements for inward inspection and weighing of grains by the CGC at port terminals and transfer elevators. Inward inspection is a practice of inspecting grain at port terminals or transfer elevators when the grain comes from a domestic grain handling facility, in most cases, primary elevator. Due to the integration of grain handling industry, primary elevators often ship grain to a port terminal or transfer elevator owned by the same company, reducing the need for inspection. If this is not the case and an inspection is necessary, the proposed new system would allow shippers and elevator operators to request weighing and grading by a private service provider authorized by the CGC. Based on the estimate from the federal government, the elimination of redundant services is expected to save about $20 million annually. Many industry stakeholders believe that agricultural producers bear all these costs in the end.

For the producer payment protection program, the CGC would introduce a new insurance-based system to replace the current single option of bonding. The federal government believes the new approach will improve producer protection coverage and reduce licensing costs.

The amendments to the CGA will also eliminate the grain-appeal tribunals. If grade/weight disputes occur, the proposed new system would allow producers and other industry stakeholders to request a binding determination of grade/weight by the CGC. The CGC would provide oversight and the office of the CGC Chief Grain Inspector would be the final decision-making authority for inspection services provided by the private sector. The CGC will continue to establish and maintain standards of Canadian grain quality, and particularly, safeguard the quality of grain for exports. As well, the CGC function in producer rail car administration will remain unchanged.

The CGC has just completed another round of industry consultation on user fees. Many producer organizations and industry stakeholders provided their input to the process. A summary of the consultation findings is available at the CGC website.

In the Budget 2012, the federal government has allocated $44 million over two years to allow the CGC to transition to the new model. The CGC will continue its current statutory functions until August 1, 2013 when the proposed changes and new user fees will take effect.

For more information on the amendments to the CGA, visit the CGC website.
