BEC Feed Solutions Set to Taste New Zealand Market

MEDIA RELEASE

BEC Feed Solutions Set to Taste New Zealand Market

BEC Feed Solutions Australia has cemented its commitment to the New Zealand agricultural market with the opening of a New Zealand trading arm, BEC Feed Solutions NZ.

The move was prompted by New Zealand’s rapidly developing animal production market and thriving dairy industry, which has seen a 70% growth in dairy production over the past 20 years[1]. This, coupled with the dairy industry’s growing preference for supplementary feeding over a solely pasture-based system, provides a sound platform for BEC – Australia’s largest independent animal pre-mix manufacturer - to officially enter the New Zealand market.

Specialising in high quality, innovative animal nutrition products, including premixes, feed additives, supplements and feed commodities, BEC Feed Solutions NZ will service the dairy industry plus New Zealand’s calf rearing, horse breeding, pig, poultry, dry-stock and companion animal sectors. Until now, BEC Feed Solutions Australia has been supplying nutritional products to key manufacturers in the New Zealand market. Growing these existing partnerships and finding new supply relationships is an important part of BEC’s strategy.

Brett Antonio, Managing Director of BEC Feed Solutions Australia says the company is well-placed to supply the needs of modern agricultural production in New Zealand.

“New Zealand’s animal production industry is growing rapidly, with over 953,000 tonnes of compound feed produced in 2012[2]and 35-40% of owner-operated dairy farms[3] now opting for a supplementary-feed system. With two dedicated full-time manufacturing plants, sound distribution capacity, leading quality assurance and over 25 years’ industry experience, we are perfectly positioned to service the New Zealand market,” says Mr Antonio.

Mr Antonio adds that producing optimum quality ingredients is at the core of BEC’s business philosophy.

“Our business is guided by a healthy respect for our relationship to the human food chain and as such we are committed to manufacturing and supplying safe, quality feed products. This is now more crucial than ever considering New Zealand’s increasing consumer demand, stringent regulations, increasing exports, animal welfare, and the need to maintain competitive quality advantage. We want to contribute to further growing the country’s animal production market by working closely with New Zealand companies to optimise nutritional health” explains Mr Antonio.

BEC Feed Solutions NZ will be managed by a dedicated New Zealand-based technical team, with a collective 20 years’ experience in animal nutrition and health, ingredient procurement and related regulatory controls.

BEC Feed Solutions Pty Ltd is an independent family-owned company located in Brisbane. Its mission is to become the leader in the supply of nutritional advice, premixes, feed ingredients and feed commodities to the Australian, New Zealand and international agricultural markets. With the addition of its New Zealand trading arm, BEC Feed Solutions now operates in three countries; Australia, New Zealand and Indonesia.
