Legislation to address US reliance
on foreign supply chains
US Representatives recently introduced a bill to the House Committee on
Agriculture intended to assess and address the United States' reliance on
certain agricultural imports, which includes the animal feed and pet food
industry's dependence on China's vitamin and amino acid supply.
The bill, Securing American Agriculture Act (H.R. 8003), would mandate
that the US Secretary of Agriculture " publish, on an annual basis, an assessment
on the United States' dependency on critical agricultural products or
inputs from the People's Republic of China, and for other purposes. "
The United States' reliance on China's supply of certain essential ingredients
is a major concern for the American animal food industry. According to
the American Feed Industry Association (AFIA), China exclusively manufactures
several key vitamins, including vitamins B1, B3, B8, B11, B12, C, D3
and DK3, as well as 85% of the world's supply of essential amino acids used
in animal feed and pet food products.
" AFIA's feed and pet food manufacturing members are gravely concerned
about the United States' dependency on China for vitamins and other critical
inputs necessary to produce complete diets for America's domestic livestock
and pets, " said Constance Cullman, president and chief executive officer of
the AFIA. " Just like us, animals require daily vitamins for healthy growth
and development. Our industry is prepared to work with the federal government
to do everything in its power to head off these risks before they cause
catastrophic animal welfare, food security or economic repercussions. "
VAFO acquires German pet food manufacturer
VAFO Group acquired Allco Tiernahrung, a family-owned German manufacturer
of high-quality pet foods, creating VAFO.de. According to VAFO,
the acquisition represents a major milestone for both companies.
According to VAFO, the
acquisition aligns with its aim
to steadily expand its market
share. The company aims
to transform its values into a
more unified image and target
German pet owners, offering
them more pet nutrition
solutions. Allco's modern pet
food offerings will build upon
VAFO's wide array of innovative
products and services.
" Germany is the most
important market
for us in
Europe, and it's where we want to further invest and expand our market position, "
said Pavel Bouška, chairman of the board at VAFO Group. " We have
reached very promising sales and market position thanks to the intensive
work of Jörg Lefers and his team. I am happy that we will stay together and
bring a lot of innovation in the short future. "
Following the completion of the acquisition, VAFO plans to continue to
expand its presence in Europe through major expansions, investments and
additional acquisitions in Germany.
INNOVAFEED OPENS
NORTH AMERICAN INSECT
INNOVATION CENTER
Innovafeed, producer of insect ingredients
for animal feed, pet food and plant nutrition,
inaugurated its North American Insect
Innovation Center (NAIIC) in Decatur, Ill.
The pilot plant and innovation center is the
French company's first step in its expansion
into North America.
Innovafeed strategically chose Decatur as
its North American home to capitalize on
its partnership with ADM through which
Innovafeed will repurpose ADM's agricultural
corn-based byproducts to aid in its breeding
of black soldier fly larvae (BSFL) and create
sustainable ingredients for use in animal
nutrition.
" We chose Decatur for our first US operation
because of its location in the heart of the
Midwest corn belt and its proximity to our
partner ADM and other agribusiness leaders, "
said Clément Ray, chief executive officer
of Innovafeed. " ADM's corn byproducts are a
rich resource that we will leverage to fuel our
black soldier fly production. At the same time,
this circular process will present a tangible solution
to contribute to our mission and the US
Department of Energy's objectives of decarbonizing
the industrial sector. "
Innovafeed's innovative process produces
insect meal, oil and soil amendment,
which the company has marketed in North
American under the Hilucia™ brand.
Additional plans are underway to build a
full-size 1 million-square-foot facility next
door to the NAIIC's current location. In the
meantime, Innovafeed intends to use the pilot
plant's capabilities to finetune its processes
and product development.
