New factory poised to ensure international advance
Poultry shall ensure future growth
Vilofoss has also made significant advances into the important market for Premix & Nutrition for poultry. In 2016 Vilofoss established an expert panel to drive developments on the international market for Premix & Nutrition for the rapidly growing poultry sector. The group shall work in close collaboration with the rest of the DLG Group to ensure future growth.
"Poultry currently accounts for 10% of our overall turnover, and we hope to see poultry comprise a larger part of our activity going forward, and increase Vilofoss' turnover and earnings significantly. The goal for our international expert panel is to become as significant in Premix & Nutrition for poultry as for pigs and cattle, which jointly comprise 90% of turnover," says Jacob Holm.
Positive outlook for 2017
"We have positive expectations for 2017 and the coming years. The international market for Premix & Nutrition is expected to grow by 30% over the next five years, and we will have our piece of the pie. Vilofoss' international setup promotes considerable faith in our success", says Jacob Holm.
