The Netherlands’ De Heus Branch Co. Ltd. on May 8 put into operation an aquafeed plant in the Hoa Phu Industrial Zone, southern Vinh Long province.

Covering an area of 3 hectares, the 7.5 million USD plant has a designed capacity of 100,000 tonnes of aquafeed a year, providing aquafeed for northern provinces and the southeast region and export.

By 2015, the company will inject an additional investment of 5 million USD to raise the plant’s production capacity to 200,000 tonnes per year.

The Hoa Phu Industrial Zone now has four aquaculture feed plants with a total capacity of 5,000 tonnes per month.-VNA
