A delegation of Chinese officials from China Inspection and Quarantine (CIQ), operating directly under The General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine (AQSIQ), will visit and tour BioZyme® Inc.’s state-of-the art fermentation facility on Tuesday, Oct. 18. CIQ officials work closely with laboratories, local offices and other entities to secure the quality of products imported to China.
BioZyme, innovators in all-natural animal nutrition and microbiology, began exporting to China in 2005, with a significant commitment to developing the relationship through a marketing and sales representative on the ground in China, Dr. Ming He. A graduate of the University of Wisconsin, Madison with a PhD in Dairy Science, Dr. He advises large dairies in China on how to improve ration utilization. BioZyme is looking to expand its international market into China’s significant swine industry.
“China is home to half of the world’s swine population. We are already seeing momentum in our China dairy business. Plans are under way to begin feeding trials in China with our all-natural feed additive, Amaferm®, to develop a research-based approach targeted at improving sow digestion for more total pounds weaned per litter,” said Elishia Carrillo, International Marketing Director at BioZyme.
In addition to the CIQ officials, St. Joseph, MO Mayor Bill Falkner and representatives from the Missouri Department of Agriculture will be in attendance, as well as local and international representatives from BioZyme.
BioZyme President Robert R. Norton says he is honored to have such a distinguished group of attendees at the meeting to convey just how important Chinese business is to BioZyme.
“The Chinese market diversification represents an important milestone for BioZyme International’s future growth,” said Norton. “Our partnership with top-tier Chinese institutions provides the three factors we believe are critical to solidifying our market leadership: access to trusted distributor partners, access to technical sales and access to key customers. As demand for tools to help increase modern livestock production in China continues to grow, our partners will be instrumental in helping us ramp up growth. We look forward to capitalizing on the significant opportunities in front of us.”
