08/10/2014: Industry responds well to VietStock 2014 after the first 10 years

Initiated in 2004, VIETSTOCK 2014 Expo & Forum is Vietnam’s Premier Feed, Livestock and Meat Industry event.
It has further solidified its reputation as the region’s leading industry event and is continuing its growth trajectory. Hosted and strongly supported by the Department of Livestock Production, Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development (MARD), the event is the ultimate ‘one-stop’ show for all livestock professionals to find solutions for their business needs, enhance manageability and increase profits.


With regard to networking, it is an important way to establish contacts with major industry players and to get hands-on advice and inspect the latest technologies and products. The event’s positioning as the premier show is not only in regards to the Vietnamese market, but covers the wider Mekong delta region. 
VIETSTOCK  will be held from October 15-17, 2014, at the Saigon Exhibition & Convention Center (SECC), in Ho Chi Minh City with over 250 industry-leading local, regional and international suppliers from 30 countries in attendance from dozens of professional categories including animal health and nutrition, feed, meat packaging and processing equipment, genetics and farm equipment, among many others.

Another highlight of VIETSTOCK 2014 is the presence of European pavilions such as the Czech Republic, Denmark, UK, and Holland. The exhibition expects to welcome over 8000 trade visitors this year.

“In Vietnam the demand for food, meat and dairy products is currently undergoing rapid growth, driven by the rising population and living standards of our country. Under the Livestock Department Strategy, it is expected that livestock production will increase from 27 percent in 2007, to 38 percent by 2015, reaching 42 percent by 2020.

At the same time, the Vietnamese livestock industry is expected to produce 5.5 million tons of meat, 14 billion eggs and more than one million tons of milk in 2020. The outlook is certainly bright for our livestock industry. However, this growth also raises challenges for industry players because technology and innovation must be introduced to help with production, while pricing efficiency is critical in order to meet such huge market demands. In addition, a major consideration we take very seriously is that we must ensure that food products meet stringent hygiene and safety standards.

The Department of Livestock Production (MARD) has been working with the VIETSTOCK Expo & Forum since its first event in 2004 and I am happy to report that the show has grown bigger and better every year. We are confident that the 2014 exhibition will promote further cooperation among the livestock, meat and feed fraternities throughout the region”, said Mr. Nguyen Xuan Duong, Deputy Head, Department of Livestock Production, Ministry of Agriculture & Rural Development (MARD).
Held in conjunction with the VIETSTOCK exhibition will be a variety of high quality conference programs organized by both the organizer and the Department of Livestock Production, MARD, with the aim of helping participants find solutions to a variety of business challenges.

The conferences will feature a variety of interesting topics such as “the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) - Opportunities and Challenges of Vietnam's livestock industry”, “Antibiotics and banned drugs in animal feed”, “Quality control of imported products for the feed industry” and “Meat processing in Vietnam: Growth and Opportunities”.
