Behn Meyer at ILDEX 2017 in Jakarta, Indonesia

The 3rd International Livestock, Dairy, Meat Processing, and Aquaculture Exposition (ILDEX) was held recently at the Jakarta International Expo Convention Center (JI Expo) from 18 – 20 October 2017.

This latest installment of ILDEX saw representation from more than 230 companies hailing from 34 countries, all of them bringing to the table a variety of the best and latest in food technology.

“ILDEX Indonesia has seen tremendous growth this year,” shared Mr. Nino Gruettke, the Managing Director of VNU Exhibitions Asia Pacific Co. Ltd. He later stated that the event would welcome 8,000 visitors.

Behn Meyer was represented at the event by the Animal Nutrition team from Indonesia. On the second day of the exhibition, our Technical Manager Dr. Poh Soon Chan conducted a seminar titled “Pro GIT SF3: A synergistic blend of short and medium chain fatty acids for AGP replacement in poultry feed”.

During the second session, Mr. Akbar Ramadhan, our Product Development & Techinical Manager at Behn Meyer Chemicals, was introduced as the keynote speaker with the topic, “Poultry Water Hygiene: One of Critical Point in AGP Restriction Policy”.

The Indonesian government has banned the use of Antibiotic Growth Promoters (AGP) effective 1 January 2018, leading to a surge in demand for AGP-free feed. The Behn Meyer Animal Nutrition team took this opportunity to promote our AGP-free products that will help our customers comply with the new regulation while preserving their efficiency.

The event also introduced the first edition of ABC Challenge Asia, which aims to raise awareness on microbial resistance in livestock due to the excessive use of antibiotics.

On the final day, as the exhibition wrapped up, Behn Meyer walked away with new contacts and new knowledge; but that was not all –– we also walked away with a trophy from the event organisers for our active participation.

We look forward to future installments of ILDEX, where we hope to meet everyone again.
