FAMSUN (Muyang) company profile

http://en.muyang.com/

Muyang Co, Ltd recently announced changing its brand name from Muyang to FAMSUN starting May 2014. This move is prompted by the idea of better illustrating the company’s business and the farm-to-table industry chain it serves. It is consistent with Muyang’s global strategy and its aim of becoming an integrated solution provider in the agro-industry.

FAMSUN originates from “famous, farm, family, sun and union”; it implies Muyang Co, Ltd’s development concept and vision, which is to build a green and healthy supply chain from farm to table together with its customers and to convert traditional agriculture into a modern, profitable and sustainable business with its integrated solutions in feed manufacturing, grain milling, grain handling and storage, food processing, as well as industrial automation.

The creative design of the FAMSUN logo features a beveled letter “F”, a curvy letter “A”, a stretching letter “S” and a friendly letter “U”. It will be the only signage representing Muyang’s business, products, service and solutions. Meanwhile, the company will continue to operate in its current structure, provide follow-up service based on relevant agreement, and its business contacts will remain unchanged.

03/07/2015: ALLER GOLD trials show excellent FCR-results

In trials carried out on an independent Danish fish farm under general production conditions, ALLER GOLD showed excellent results. The FCR was found to be between 0.68 - 0.80 for fish up to 180 gr.

The ongoing trials were initiated by Aller Aqua to document that ALLER GOLD is performing at a constant high level at all times, and we are glad to say that we were not disappointed. FCR was consistently low and started below 0.7 for 50 gr fish.
    


During recent years a continuous improvement in the recipe has been carried out to enhance feed performance and competitiveness. Aller Aqua Research is constantly testing and choosing the best performing raw materials of the highest quality to ensure first-class feeds to our customers.
 
When you feed with ALLER GOLD you get:
  • the optimum mix of raw materials to support the best possible FCR, growth and health of your trout
  • a thoroughly researched and tested feed at a competitive price
  • a seasonally optimised feed for optimum effect at no extra cost (ALLER GOLD is included in our Temperature Adapted Feeds concept for both the Spring Edition and the Winter Edition)
Hans Erik Bylling, CEO of Aller Aqua explains: “ALLER GOLD is one of our finest products for trout and it is a product that I am proud of selling to our customers. I receive a lot of positive feedback on both technical quality and performance. Our R&D department, led by Dr Hanno Slawski, continuously works hard at getting the best results that we can pass on to our customers, and I can see all the hard work paying off.”

03/07/2015: Famsun give a brief introduction to their Godrej Project in India

http://en.muyang.com/

Famsun have successfully completed an aquafeed plant with Indian company Godrej.  The plant is located at Hanuman Junction, 60 miles east of Vijayawada, India. 

The value of the contract was US$4.9 million. The project includes two extruded fish feed production lines and two shrimp feed production lines. They are all made of steel and electronically controlled. The fish feed production lines and the shrimp feed production lines are housed in two separate workshops. The Godrej Project uses Famsun’s own full-set shrimp feed production machinery, whereas the extruder, dryer, grinder and supporting facilities are bought from other companies.

Construction started on 1 August 2013. By 1 May 2014 the extruded fish feed production lines had been approved and delivered. By 6th June 2014 the shrimp feed production lines constructed by Famsun had likewise been approved and delivered successfully.

Now
Famsun is undertaking another project, 'Acigodrej,' this time in Bangladesh. The project's name reflects the fact it is a joint venture created by ACI, a local company, in partnership with Godrej. This facility is also a feed manufacturing plant.

02/07/2015: Global production of tilapia is increasing –and Aller Aqua is playing a leading role


The world's production of tilapia is increasing, and today Egypt is the 2nd largest producer of tilapia, only surpassed by China.

The Food and Agriculture Organisation of the United Nations states: “In its development strategy, the Ministry of Agriculture and Land Reclamation, plans to increase Egypt's total fish production to 1.5 million tonnes by 2017 and is targeting a harvest of 1 million tonnes from aquaculture. The sector is growing at levels exceeding those targeted in the plan.”
       
http://www.aller-aqua.com/

We estimate that Egypt currently produces in the range of 900,000 tons of tilapia on an annual basis. During recent years we have been taking the necessary measures to become a leading producer of fish feeds on the Egyptian market.

In 2009 our first visit to Egypt was followed by a joint-venture with a privately owned company. This led to the establishment of Aller Aqua Egypt. Largely due to the growing tilapia production more capacity was needed, and in 2015 we inaugurated a new state-of-the art factory in 6th of October City, Egypt. By doing so and by adding more than 50 years of know-how followed by a strong presence in the market we have raised the production of feed by a factor of 3. And the growth continues.

A unique joint-venture with a strong and trustworthy partner, combined with our know-how, R&D and quality set-up has brought us into this position.

A strong focus on production efficiency, environment and training are key words in our cooperation with fish farmers in Egypt – and of course all over the World.

Aller Aqua Egypt is today the largest producer of environmentally friendly fish feed in Egypt – and all of Africa.
