Feed price in Vietnam spikes on short supply

March 23, 2020

by Ha Thu – Since the end of February, feed producers in Vietnam have increased their price by USD 0.011 – 0.015/kg. “Feed ingredients are not priority and feed manufacturers are finding it difficult to import raw materials from China,” said Mai Thanh Dieu, Director of Vietnam Animal Nutrition Company. A feed additive distributor told Asian Agribiz that materials such as micronutrients are not coming through  from China due to border closure. This has forced producers to switch to alternatives with limited availability and priced higher.
