Russia registers Addcon’s products



International Milling Directory‘s member, Addcon, have just released New products are available now in Russia following the news that KOFA GRAIN pH5, Addcon´s feed and grain preservative as well as KOFASIL liquid, Addcon´s no 1 silage additive have been registered successfully in Russia lately. The products will be available in Russia for the coming grass silage season and grain harvesting season respectively to be used and tested by the industry.

Kurt Wegleitner from Addcon said,

“Rising feed costs have had a severe impact on animal production in Russia as anywhere else. It is a key requirement to keep losses low and to preserve the quality of the raw material. Both KOFA GRAIN and KOFASIL will help to those minimize losses AND it will preserve the quality of the raw material thus we can ensure healthy and safe feed ingredients. As we are committed to the markets in Eastern Europe, Addcon will appoint more business partners in the region. In addition, a new technical application manager will start soon with Addcon to support both our distributors and customers in the region”

The International Milling Directory wishes Addcon good success in the Russian market.

Addcon have been a member of the International Milling Directory for many years.

IMD welcomes back its GEAPSers

Braving the snowy weather on the east coast, the International Milling Directory team has returned from its travels having made a big impression Stateside.

IMD co-ordinator Tom Blacker is not willing to go as far as to compare the trip’s success to The Beatles’s first American tour, but with hundreds of directories distributed and solid feedback from GEAPS exhibitors, he’s confident that next year’s edition will be the best one yet.

Tom was knocked for six by the number of IMD customers repeating their orders for listings and increasing their advertising prominence in the print and online editions. Have you got in touch with us about IMD 2013/4 yet? Visit our website now to update your listing, or register your company today!

International Milling Directory representatives are heading back across the Atlantic Ocean after the GEAPS Exchange 2013 ended on Tuesday. Exhibitors are catching planes and displays are being torn down.

Some GEAPS exhibitions were truly extraordinary

Some GEAPS exhibitions were truly extraordinary

The last day saw the usual mix of educational sessions and time for exhibition attendees to visit the stands and catch up with each other, and the late afternoon was given over to GEAPS’s Annual Meeting.

The 84th annual technical expo has been a success, with 2,372 visitors and a record-breaking number of exhibitors. We’re expecting our own delegates to be back any minute now, so watch this space for our own IMD co-ordinator Tom Blacker’s opinions of the show, its attractions and its attendees.

IMD enters GEAPS’s final day

Representatives from the International Milling Directory have been literally rushed off their feet in the last few days, covering every square inch of the Expo Hall at Louisville, Kentucky. From what this blogger (like Miss Moneypenny, still in rainy old England) can tell, IMD Co-ordinator Tom Blacker has made it his mission to meet personally all 2,800 visitors to GEAPS, and make his sales pitch to each of its 600 booths.

At GEAPS today? Have a rep in your company who is? Ask them to get down to Booth L6 (it’s near the entrance) and talk to Tom or Roger Gilbert (our proprietor) about the IMD. There’ll be copies of this year’s directory to browse through on-stand. Enlist your company in the 22nd International Milling Directory for as little as $20!

The International Milling Directory’s reach is truly global

The International Milling Directory (IMD) is very happy to welcome to its pages Milluno Milling Technologies & Equipment. Milluno is a part of Turkey’s substantial grain industry, which is growing in global importance all the time. The company exports its machinery expertise to 20 countries on three continents, and is proud that all its milling equipment is of Turkish origin.

Milluno is based in Konya, in central Anatolia, a city best known as the medieval home of the Islamic Mevlevi Order, or as they are popularly called in the West, the Whirling Dervishes. The order was founded by the followers of Rumi, the thirteenth-century Persian poet, jurist and mystic who early in his life settled in Konya to lead a Sufi religious school.

Everyone on the IMD team hopes Milluno can use us to reach customers for their business all over the world.
