08/07/2015: Asia’s largest dedicated feed & grain show to return to Bangkok


2016 will be a very special year for Victam International BV in Thailand as it will be its 25th Anniversary. It seems amazing that the very first VICTAM Asia event was held in a hotel car park in Bangkok in 1991. 25 years later, the event is held at the modern Bangkok International Trade & Exhibition Centre (BITEC)!

The last event in Asia, held in 2014, was very successful and completely sold out. The shows attracted over 6000 industry executives from throughout South and South East Asia. Visitors came from a total of 63 countries, so it was a truly international event.
The exhibitions and conferences will take place from 29 to 31 March 2016, and will be held once again at the BITEC in Bangkok, Thailand.

The Synergy of the three shows:
FIAAP Asia 2016 is the only specialist exhibition and conference for ingredients, additives and formulation of animal feed, aquafeed and dry petfood for the expanding Asia/Pacific market. This show directly links with VICTAM Asia 2016 which primarily profiles animal feed production equipment and technology.


VICTAM Asia 2016 is Asia/Pacific’s largest exhibition of equipment, technology and ancillary systems required for the safe and effective production of feeds for animals, aquafeed, dry petfood and biomass pellet production. This show is co-located with GRAPAS Asia 2016 and FIAAP Asia 2016.

GRAPAS Asia 2016 is the only trade show in the Asia/Pacific region for rice & flour milling systems, grain processing, storage, preservation & distribution, industrial noodle & pasta production, the manufacture of breakfast cereals and extruded snacks. Animal feeds require grains, etc as a base for their production; this shows the synergy between the three shows and why GRAPAS Asia is co-located with VICTAM Asia.

The shows also give added value to both exhibitors and visitors in the area of biomass pellet production. Biomass pellets are produced through similar technology to that used in the production of feed pellets, so the manufacturers of this technology have adapted it so that they can market their pellet mills to the growing biomass industries of Asia. A visitor from a biomass pelleting plant will also need the same equipment as that used in other mills: silos, conveyors, bagging systems, etc.

There are a number of supporting conferences, including: FIAAP Conference 2016, Petfood Forum Asia 2016, Aquafeed Horizons Asia 2016, GRAPAS & Global Milling Conference Asia 2016, the 2nd ASEAN Feed & Rice Symposium and GMP+. A series of technical seminars will be organised by the exhibitors on a wide range of subjects.

Those of you who were at the FIAAP/VICTAM/GRAPAS Asia 2014 event will recall that Victam International BV arranged for all the Presidents and Secretary Generals from all the ASEAN feed milling associations to attend a specially convened meeting. During this meeting it was decided to form the Federation of ASEAN Feed Milling Associations, of which Mr Pornsil is the current chairman. 

In 2016 the members of the Federation will meet again for the 2nd ASEAN Feed Summit at BITEC during FIAAP/VICTAM/GRAPAS Asia 2016. Here, these feed executives will discuss and help determine future policies and objectives, and look at the trading and financial implications of the impending ASEAN Free Trade Zone.

Victam International is proud to have the support of the following organisations:

  • The Thai Ministry of Agriculture & Co-Operatives
  • The Thai Department of Livestock Development
  • The Thai Rice Exporters Association
  • The Thai Chamber of Commerce
  • The Thailand Convention & Exhibition Bureau   
  • The Thai Department of Fisheries
  • The Thai Feed Mill Association
  • The Thai Petfood Association     
  • The Thai Rice Milling Association
  • The Thai Rice Packers Association
At FIAAP/VICTAM/GRAPAS International 2015 in Cologne, Germany, Victam celebrated its 50th anniversary. Over the years, the exhibitions and the series of conferences that accompany the shows have grown enormously. What is very pleasing is that there are still a good number of companies who exhibited in the first show and are still exhibiting today. The technology has changed, as have the faces, but it is gratifying to see these companies are still trading and expanding their marketing and sales horizons. Many of these companies will also exhibit in Bangkok.
