Amlan® International to Present Innovative Mineral Technology Solutions at VIV Asia 2023

VIV 2023 Tradeshow

Amlan® International to attend VIV Asia 2023

  • Annually one-third of the world’s broiler meat is supplied by Asia, making this region critical to the global food supply.
  • VIV Asia attendees can meet with Amlan technical experts and the local sales team to learn more about their innovative mineral-based products at booth 3650.
  • Amlan will host two presentations on natural alternatives to promote animal health and improve production efficiencies at the VIV Asia 2023 global trade show.
  • Dr. Aldo Rossi will present features of recently launched Phylox® (available in select international markets), a natural alternative to anticoccidial drugs that improves gut health and production efficiencies.
  • Dr. Marc Herpfer will present Calibrin®-Z (available in select international markets) research and discuss the capabilities of advanced mineral technology for biotoxin control.

CHICAGO, March 01, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Amlan® International, the animal health business of Oil-Dri® Corporation of America and a global leader in natural, mineral-based feed additives for poultry and livestock, will provide producers in the Asia-Pacific region with an opportunity to learn about research-backed solutions that optimize gut health and improve economic production at the upcoming VIV Asia 2023 conference to be held at the IMPACT venue, March 8-10, 2023, in Bangkok, Thailand. The conference, which features more than 200 professional speakers and more than 45,000 visitors, offers an opportunity for producers and companies like Amlan to connect at the largest feed-to-food global trade show in Asia.

Asia supplied 36% of the world’s demand for broiler meat, producing 44 million metric tons in 2020. Poultry producers in India, Indonesia and Japan are leading broiler meat production in the Asian region, with Vietnam and Pakistan showing rapid growth in the last five years.

Additionally, almost one-half of annual global swine production and over 30% of the world’s milk production is from Asia.

Recognizing Asia’s impact on the global food supply, Amlan has built a robust sales and technical service team throughout the region. During the conference, producers can visit Amlan experts at booth 3650 where they will showcase their full range of feed additives, including Phylox®, Calibrin®-Z and Varium® (all available in select international markets), which promote optimal intestinal health and feed efficiency, adding value for producers by maximizing poultry and livestock performance.

“Our mineral-based products protect poultry and livestock health by binding bacterial toxins and mycotoxins. We are excited to be presenting to this vital international audience,” said Dr. Saksake Pacharadit, Regional Sales Manager for the Asia-Pacific Region. “Unlike other clay-based products, Amlan selects our single-source mineral and leverages a proprietary thermal processing technique (not harsh chemicals), tailored specifically for each of our products, to optimize product efficacy. We’re pleased to be showcasing our products in such an important market like Thailand where the production of broiler and pork meat ranks among the top five for the Asia-Pacific region.”

Amlan will also host two informative presentations during VIV Asia. The first, to be held at 11 a.m. on Wednesday, March 8, will be presented by Dr. Marc Herpfer, Vice President of New Technologies, Oil-Dri® Corporation of America, who will discuss “Natural Mineral Technology for Advanced Biotoxin Control.” At 11 a.m. on Thursday, March 9, Dr. Aldo Rossi, Vice President, Innovation and Technical Service, Amlan International, will present on “Natural Alternatives for Controlling Coccidiosis.”

“During VIV Asia, attendees will get acquainted with Amlan’s innovative and intelligent feed additive solutions through two presentations by Amlan experts,” said Dr. Wade Robey, Vice President of Agriculture, Oil-Dri Corporation of America, and President, Amlan International. “Coccidiosis and performance challenges affect poultry production costing the global chicken industry billions every year. Our products, Calibrin-Z and Phylox, support gut health, improve productivity, and help drive producers’ profits.”

DTAC-True merger completed

Telenor Asia announced yesterday (Wednesday) the completion of the merger between Total Access Communication Company (DTAC) and True Corporation (TRUE), billed as the largest telecom merger in Southeast Asia by combined enterprise value.

Jørgen A. Rostrup, executive vice president of Telenor Group and head of Telenor Asia, said that the completion of the deal is a new milestone in Thailand’s impressive digital journey.

DTAC is a subsidiary of the Telenor Group of Norway, while True is the subsidiary of the Charoen Pokphand Group.

“The pace of innovation is expected to accelerate, creating growth opportunities for the country. Telenor is ready to support True Corporation with access to advanced technology, a network of global partners and cutting-edge industry insights,” according to Telenor Asia’s statement, issued yesterday.

The new company will combine the strengths of DTAC and True to deliver high quality connectivity and leverage the latest developments in 5G, AI and the Internet of Things, said Rostrup.

He also said that the mergers in Thailand and Malaysia will see Telenor expanding its role in Asia, serving more than 200 million customers.

The new entity, named True Corporation has been registered with the Business Development Department of the Ministry of Commerce. The company’s board has appointed Manat Manavutiveth, current co-president of True, as the CEO of the new company, and Sharad Mehrotra, the current CEO of DTAC, as his deputy.

The board has also resolved to call a meeting of shareholders of the two companies for approval of the new entity and other issues, such as capital registration and the number and value of shares in the new entity.

The merger will result an increase the customer base of True Corporation to 55 million mobile subscribers, compared to the 45 million of the current market leader, Advanced Info Service Plc (AIS).

Under the merger conditions, set by the National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission (NBTC), the new company must retain the brand names of DTAC and True for three years and that it must continue to provide services and promotional rights to their customers.

Thai consumer groups had tried to stop the merger deal by asking the Central Administrative Court to issue an injunction to stall the deal, but this was rejected by the court. The case is still pending with the court.

Personal and credit card loans contribute to rise in Thailand’s household debt

Household debt for the third quarter of 2022 increased by 3.9%, to over 14.9 trillion baht for the first time in five quarters, largely due to the rise in personal loans and credit card borrowing, according to the National Economic and Social Development Council.

Personal and credit card borrowing for the third quarter of 2022 increased 20% and 10% respectively. The main issue of concern, according to the Credit Bureau, is the increase of NPLs on credit cards among the 30-49 age group of working people, while pensioners are bearing an average of 77,000 baht in car loan debt.

NPLs have increased from 4.3 million for the first quarter of 2022 to 4.7 million, 60% of which are personal loans. Total NPLs in the system amount to 400 billion baht, double that of the first quarter.

Although household debt for the third quarter increased by 3.9% compared to the second quarter, they account for 86.6%of the GDP, down from 88.1% for the second quarter.

The employment situation in the fourth quarter improved, expanding by 1.5% compared to the same quarter a year before, thanks to economic recovery and the reopening of the country to foreign arrivals. The number of people employedduring last year was 39.2 million, including 11.9 million in the farm sector and the rest mostly in hotel and tourism businesses.

The NESDC warns, however, that exports are predicted to slow this year which may impact export-oriented industries. The cost of living remains high, despite wage adjustments and revenue increases.

The NESDC points out that only 4.2 million people paid personal income tax, out of 10.8 million who submitted tax returns.

Many people who have incomes are non-formal workers and, therefore, are outside tax system, while many high earners resort to deductibles and donations to pay less tax, according to the NESDC.
