BioMar appoints new MD for Vietnam

From February, the BioMar Viet Uc joint venture in Vietnam will be headed by Managing Director Duong Anh Tu, who has an extensive commercial experience from the feed and food sector in Asia.

During his career, Duong Anh Tu has been dedicated to managing commercial development, especially within the Vietnamese animal nutrition industry. He has vast experience from local and global companies, including Olam Global Agri and Cargill.

BioMar has during the last years created a strong global market position within the shrimp feed segment, positioning innovative grower feed solutions as well as high-end hatchery feed among the market leading products. The new product portfolio has a strong potential to help Vietnamese farmers in the current situation of adverse market conditions.

“We have chosen Duong Anh Tu to lead the next phase of our growth of the shrimp feed business in Vietnam. He has a proven ability to lead the development of innovative solutions for the local markets, and we are sure he will be a strong asset for the organization as well as for the customers”, explains Francois Loubere, Vice President of BioMar Asia.

Duong Anh Tu will replace Franck Bodin, who was hired to launch the business in Vietnam and has been instrumental in establishing the BioMar Viet Uc feed brand in the local market.
