Our distribution partners have deep knowledge of the local markets. Coupled with our technical support, we feel confident that together we can achieve our ambitious growth agenda going forward.”
The NCA region (North and Central America) combines some of the world’s top feed producing countries, with 215 MMt produced in the US, 37 MMt in Mexico and 30 MMt in Canada. The protein company increased the production capacity in Findlay, Ohio with the completion of a new production line earlier this year, and is targeting growth across the region.
