O&J HØJTRYK A/S visit our headquarters in Cheltenham

(L-R): Roger Gilbert, Tuti Tan, Darren Parris and Leif Wolf

International Milling Directory member O&J HØJTRYK A/S’ main contact paid a visit to the UK headquarters in Cheltenham today, Wednesday 5th Feburary. Battling through bad weather, unruly transportation and a disappointing meal at Brasserie Blanc in Cheltenham, Leif had a tiresome Tuesday travelling from Amsterdam to Cheltenham ready for today. However, company and familiarity of catching up over a shared passion of milling brightened up the experience.

Leif Wolf met with staff Roger Gilbert, Darren Parris, Tuti Tan and Tom Blacker to discuss our common values and to finalise the latest article which will be published in the January/February issue of Grain & Feed Milling Technology.

Both parties have met may times before at industry events and in many countries: Germany, Thailand and Turkey to name a few but hosting Leif in our main premises was a pleasure we could not refuse. We gained great mutual insights and learnt an impressive amount from Leif, and appreciate each other’s partnership in moving towards the future in feed production industries.

As all good things must come to an end, Darren voluntarily drove Leif back to the airport for him to resume business with his customers and wished him well until the next occasion. We may even drop into him at his office O&J HØJTRYK A/S in Denmark in the near future…

Vietnam’s Greenfeed is Asia’s no.1

Greenfeed of Vietnam are one of East Asia's up-and-coming feed producers for the livestock industry

Greenfeed of Vietnam is one of East Asia’s up-and-coming feed producers

Animal and aqua feed company Greenfeed of Vietnam was made Asian Feedmiller of the Year at VIV Asia in Bangkok last week. The competition, in its fourth year, is run by the food chemistry multinational Addcon.

As winners Greenfield will receive sponsorship for a trip to VICTAM Ukraine, in Kiev later this year. VICTAM is one of the leading events for the global livestock industry, so this award should allow Greenfeed to propel themselves to bigger and better things.

Addcon CEO and founder Berndt Kochannek congratulated Greenfeed: “We have been proud sponsor of the award ever since it has been initiated in 2009. We believe that [the] award not only helps the winner in getting the reputation they deserve for all their hard work, but it motivates also other feedmills in the region to further improve the quality of their feed.”

“Greenfeed has been awarded the prize for the innovation they have shown in the very competitive market in Vietnam (and Cambodia). The last years, which have been characterized by high raw material costs yet tough competition in the feedmill industry made it clear that only dedicated feedmills will be able to stay in the market. Greenfeed has done great in the past and we think that Greenfeed will do so in the future.”

Runner-up Feedmiller of the Year was the Dabaco Group, also from Vietnam. Anmol Feeds from Bihar, India won the new ‘Emerging Miller’ gong.

The International Milling Directory extends its congratulations to all three companies, and hopes to see them in the pages of the 22nd edition, published this summer.
