23/08/2013: USW South Korea new director; IFIF's feed report; Evonik launches animal feed center

The U.S. Wheat Associates (USW) recently announced that Dr. Won Bang Koh, country director, South Korea, is to retire on September 30, 2013. Koh will be replaced by Chang-Yoon Kang.

“In the wheat business, relationships matter and Dr. Koh has built an incredible link between U.S. wheat farmers with the Korean millers and bakers who buy and process their crops. We thank him for his commitment to this industry and for his dedicated service over the last 28 years; he will be missed,” said Alan Tracy, president of USW. 

Back in July, IFIF launched its "Comparison of Regulatory Management of Authorized Ingredients, Approval Processes, and Risk-Assessment Procedures for Feed Ingredients" report.

Drafted on expert input and support by government feed regulators and feed ingredients associations, the report covers Brazil, Canada, China, European Union, Japan, South Africa, and United States.

The objective of the report is to address similarities and differences among the 7 regulatory jurisdictions on the management of existing feed ingredients, the approval process, and risk management assessment for feed ingredients.
Evonik Industries has opened its first analytical center for animal feed in South Asia. Located in Singapore, the multimillion US dollar investment complements Evonik's other analytical centers in Hanau, Germany and Beijing, China.
