20/09/2017: A synergy of expertise for better feed

by Tom Blacker, 
International Aquafeed

 JBL is a feed producer for aquarium, terrarium and pond fish, founded in 1960 by Joachim Böhme. Today JBL employ 180 people provide 150 fish feed products on the market.

 I visited their main premises in Neuhofen, Rheinland-Pfalz region of Germany on Thursday June 22, 2017 along with our Chinese milling expert partner, Dr Wenbin Wu and a contingent from London and South East Milling Society (LSEMS); totaling around 35 visitors.

 Current Head of Research and Development (R&D) and Quality Management at JBL, Michael Donner led the group through a presentation and factory tour, which was highly enjoyed by all. Michael is a fisheries biologist and expert in fish nutrition and fish health, having received his education at Ifm-Geomar Kiel and University Konstanz.

 The R&D department is highly important mainly because of the need for new products in the market. He prides farmed fish for JBL feed on being ‘very important to save natural populations – nature protection and sustainability is a main goal of JBL’.

On the JBL website, the General Manager of JBL, Roland Böhme, says, “We follow the commitment of my father, who founded the company 50 years ago. He loved animals of all kinds and made it a central issue to create products that would optimise the keeping of animals, and thus stop their removal from the wild. I am happy to continue this aim!”
