Hamlet Protein participates in Sino-Danish roundtable
Hamlet Protein recently participated in the Sino-Danish roundtable meeting that focused on opportunities for the swine industry to improve performance, quality and animal health in pig production.
The event was hosted by the Danish Embassy in China.
Attendees from the China Bureau of Agriculture and Rural Affairs, the China Agricultural University, the Chinese swine industry and multinational companies including Hamlet Protein, Danish Crown and DanBred, were welcomed by Marie Louise Flach de Neergaard, Minister Counsellor of the Danish embassy in China.
Lu Kelun, Hamlet Protein's commercial director of China, presented "A Good Start Makes All The Difference – The Importance of choosing quality protein for young animals." Kelun explained how providing the right nutrition in the early life stage of the pig is crucial to its health and performance.
Denmark is among the world's largest pig meat exporters. About 5,000 pig farms in the country produce approximately 28 million pigs annually.
Denmark is considered to be one of the most technically advanced pig producing countries, Hamlet Protein said.
Dr. Yu Feng, regional director (APAC) of Hamlet Protein, said: "Our company was founded in Denmark some 30 years ago. We are happy to have the opportunity to share our knowledge with the Chinese swine industry.
"In Europe, we have been working with a restriction on AGP (antibiotic growth promoter) use for many years and are currently facing the ban on ZnO as well. At Hamlet Protein, we have developed a range of products that can provide practical solutions when formulating diets with these restrictions, and we notice a growing interest from Chinese producers."
