SALmate Embraces Life in Thailand

26 September 2012

THAILAND - American manufacturer, The Ballard Group, Inc., has officially launched its innovative EPA/DHA dry encapsulated formulation, SALmate, during a full-day seminar in the Thai capital of Bangkok.

The seminar, held September 18, was attended by 61 delegates from the leading Thai animal feed and pet food companies.

The launch seminar was organized by their local distributor Klean Greentech Co., Ltd. under the management of Dr Kitti Supchukun and Dr Kamol Pipatpanukul at the Jasmine Hotel, Bangkok.

Two eminent guest speakers contributed on the topic of Omega-3, and in particular EPA/DHA.

Dr Vichai Vongsilpavattana informed the audience on the growing importance of functional food & Omega-3 in Thailand and the needed strategies and techniques for its successful marketing.

Dr Seksom Attamangkune, Department of Animal Science, Kasetsart University, refreshed the technical knowledge on the concept of fatty acids and its different sources and benefits.

For The Ballard Group, Jan-Jeroen De Beucker, Global Marketing Advisor, addressed the delegates on the topic, "Introducing the new state of the art on protected omega-3 fatty acids (specifically EPA and DHA) allowing for low inclusion of stable fatty acids to improve performance." It delivered the state of the science and technology about SALmate®, the unique and field supported omega-3 fatty acid enriched encapsulated product with EPA and DHA.

The interest was very high thanks to SALmate being workable across all species with a specific focus on increased reproduction in livestock, and overall well-being in companion animals.

Key industrial companies, scientists and nutritionists from layer, aqua, pig and pet sector attended this event, and learned why SALmate is Embracing Life, and reacted positively to the highly technical scope of the launch seminar.

In Thailand, the Bangkok-based Klean Greentech Co., Ltd. has been appointed as exclusive distributor for all animal species. This dynamic company supplies solutions to all sectors of the Thai feed industry in areas of Functional Food-Functional Feed, Food Safety and Raw Material Quality.

SALmate, already successfully registered, is perfectly complementing Klean Greentech's range and demand for this solution is already happening.

Apart from Thailand, new distribution partnerships in Asian countries like the Philippines, Taiwan, South Korea and Pakistan have been formed, while for others like China, Japan and Viet Nam, negotiations are ongoing.
