Kemin Extends Antibiotic Alternative (ABA) Campaign to Taiwan
Seminars provide insights on antibiotic replacement trends and regulations
TAINAN, Taiwan (June 5, 2017) – Kemin Industries has extended their “Antibiotic Alternative (ABA) Solutions” campaign to customers in Taiwan. The seminar helped more than one hundred participants, including external consultants, distributors, feed millers and farmers, understand trends on replacing antibiotic growth promoters (AGPs) in animal feed and regulations in Taiwan.
Globally, human consumption of animal protein is increasing at an unprecedented rate. In the past, producers have used AGPs to keep animals healthy and productive, but there are growing concerns that AGPs may result in a negative health impact for end consumers.
“At Kemin, we’re committed to keeping our customers up-to-date with local and global regulatory and industry trends. Through our ‘Antibiotic Alternative Solutions’ seminar, we were able to address our customers’ specific needs and help them learn how to keep their operations efficient and profitable in Taiwan,” said Dr. Alfred Chua, Marketing Director of Kemin Animal Nutrition and Health, Asia Pacific.
The event pulled together a range of antibiotic replacement experts, including Kuo Hung Chih, Associate Professor at the National Chiayi University, Department of Veterinary Medicine. With a deep understanding of the local regulatory landscape, he shared findings on antimicrobial resistance and ABA solutions in Taiwan.
Dr. Poh Soon Chan, Product Manager at Kemin Animal Nutrition and Health, Asia Pacific, gave attendees a closer look at the Kemin approach to antibiotic replacement. He focused on the ABA cost-effective and efficient solutions Kemin offers to manage intestinal health in poultry and swine.
“Solving the root cause of underlying diseases and removing any possible cycle of recontamination is the first step to keeping animals healthy without antibiotics,” said Chan. “Kemin antibiotic alternative solutions allow you to address intestinal health at the root cause and effectively manage animal health moving forward.”
