Volac Wilmar Feed Ingredients combines the nutritional reputation, global brand and sales network of Volac with the operational raw material logistics and scale of Wilmar.
The joint venture will help the companies become a global leader in animal feed fats, supporting the dairy farming industry through deep nutritional expertise, by marketing an expanded MEGA branded range of feed fat products which are responsibly sourced through a leading sustainability approach and by maximizing operational efficiency.
“Volac believes that responsibly sourced feed fats will play a key role in sustainable livestock nutrition in the future and therefore we are expanding our fats business as part of our company strategy. The joint venture with Wilmar will supply sustainable and traceable fat nutrition ingredients which will help improve the productivity of livestock production across world markets,” said David Neville, managing director of Volac Animal Nutrition.
“Wilmar and Volac both have an aspiration to set the agenda for sustainability,” said Napoleon Pefianco, managing director of Wilmar Europe Holdings B.V. “Through the joint venture, we will use our combined resources to develop sustainable feed ingredients globally, putting the joint venture at the leading edge of ethically sourced feed fat ingredients.”
