VIETNAM TOPS ASEAN IN ANIMAL FEED PRODUCTION

HANOI, Vietnam -- Vietnam is currently ASEAN's biggest animal feed producer and the tenth biggest in the world, according to the country's Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development as reported by Vietnam News Agency (VNA).

The country has more than 300 animal feed factories and over 200 facilities producing supplementary food, with a total capacity of 31 million tonnes per year.

Vietnam's animal feed output increased from 400,000 tonnes in 1993 to 23.15 million tonnes in 2016, the world's fastest growth in scale and production over the last 20 years.

The ministry's Husbandry Department had asked localities to limit the expansion of animal feed factories, especially in the Red River Delta, the southeast and the Mekong Delta.
