The fourth renewal of a strategic cooperation program was signed on June 29 by Wisium, a premix/firm services business under France’s Neovia Group, and South Korea’s Jeil Feed, which will allow the leading South Korean feed producer to strengthen its know-how in animal nutrition and Wisium to provide it with knowledge, assistance and technical support.

Wisium ranks among the leaders in the sector, providing solutions for a total feed equivalent of 30 million tons and with a direct presence in more than 50 countries and 13 others through Neovia subsidiaries.

Recognized for its research and development (R&D) and zootechnical know-how, Wisium benefits from 60 years of expertise in animal nutrition and is aiming to develop solutions to better address existing and upcoming problems in the animal nutrition industry, such as demedication, optimizing production costs, improving the quality of final products, and addressing demand in the entire chain.

Jeil Feed, a major South Korean animal feed producer with seven plants in South Korea and two in China, produces 1.4 million tons of feed per year and earns revenue of $560 million. Established in 1962, it belongs to the Harim Group, South Korea’s leading industrial player in poultry. 

Started in 2012 from a knowledge transfer agreement between the companies, the partnership has been renewed and now signed for a fourth time, focusing on designing more innovative, efficient and sustainable solutions. 

Wisium is a well-known specialist in the field of animal nutrition and health and is focusing on the development of innovative solutions, formulations for animal feed, the characterization of raw materials, and the implementation of R&D trials and protocols in zootechnical assistance. 

From this collaboration, Jeil Feed continues to develop its know-how in these fields in order to better address the agriculture sector of the future. In this context, the company will strengthen its systems efficiency by improving the performance of the company and farmers.

Driven by these objectives, it has chosen Wisium to advise it on market trends and help it design more efficient and sustainable solutions. The aim of the partnership is to provide a high level of expertise in different topics and different species. 

Included in the agreement is the renewal of technical training for Jeil Feed’s sales team on swine and ruminant and visits by Jeil Feed’s teams to Neovia platforms around the world to better understand the different modes of production and the way to adapt to each local context.

“This renewed agreement is a clear sign of the trust of Jeil Feed in the quality of the knowledge and services provided by Wisium,” said Mr. Eric Carfi, Business Development Director of Wisium in Asia. “At the same time, it demonstrates the capacity of our company to provide tailor-made value-added services and zootechnical assistance to major animal nutrition and health players, such as Jeil Feed.”
