Animal feed producer the Mavin Group has recently opened the Mavin Austfeed Dong Thap Animal Feed mill at the Cai Tau Ha Industrial Zone in the Mekong Delta’s Dong Thap province.

This is Mavin’s fifth feed mill in Vietnam and the first in a series of advanced technology agribusiness projects it will conduct in the Delta, fulfilling demand for high-quality, hygienic, and reasonably-priced agriculture products.

Construction of Mavin Austfeed Dong Thap began in early 2017, under the consultation of European experts, on an area of 4.9 ha and is the largest and most advanced feed mill in the Delta. It’s located in the focal point of commerce and trading for all of the western Delta provinces and is convenient for both land and waterway transport. With a capacity of over 400,000 tons per year, the mill is designed under the European food safety and hygiene and practical production standards, GMP Plus.

Total investment for the feed mill is $30 million. All production lines and equipment are imported from the US and Europe, utilizing the latest automation technology in material processing, production, and packaging as well as advanced information technology control systems and management.

The stand out feature of the mill is that, besides regular land transport, it also possesses wharves with advanced technology capable of berthing large vessels of up to 5,000 tons. Goods are transferred by automatic conveyer belt and robots from the warehouse straight to the vessel, saving time and cost and making it efficient and convenient for customers.

“For Mavin, Dong Thap province plays an important role in terms of geographical advantage, supporting our transportation within the Mekong Delta and optimizing our customer service processes,” said Mr. David John Whitehead, Chairman of the Mavin Group.

“Dong Thap also has a very advantageous and transparent investment environment, with efficient administration procedures. We have received full support from authorities as well as local people. This is why Mavin chose Dong Thap as our next investment location, after investing in four other provinces. We believe that Mavin’s contribution will provide great support for Dong Thap province as well as other Delta provinces to develop in the future.”

The opening of the feed mill coincided with the opening ceremony for Cao Lanh Bridge, an Australia-Vietnam friendship project, which was attended by the Prime Minister and the Australian Foreign Minister.

Beside the feed mill in Dong Thap, the Mavin Group will also invest in an Advanced Technology Breeding Research and Development Center in Cao Lanh district, Dong Thap, to provide high quality swine, chicken and duck breeds to southern Vietnam. It also plans to establish a European standard food processing plant in Dong Thap for supplying sausages, ham, and cold cuts to the domestic market as well as for export. Total investment for all its projects in Dong Thap will reach $70 million.

The Mavin Austfeed Dong Thap feed mill will be the biggest and best in Vietnam, utilizing advanced technology and robotics and providing high-quality animal feed at a reasonable price, supported by excellent customer service and technical support.
