DKSH, the leading Market Expansion Services provider with a focus on Asia, and FF Chemicals, a producer of organic acids and salts, have signed an exclusive distribution agreement for DKSH to market a range of FF Chemicals’ feed additives in Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam.
DKSH Business Unit Performance Materials, a leading specialty chemicals distributor and provider of Market Expansion Services for performance materials, and FF Chemicals, a provider of organic acids and salts for application in food products and animal feedstuffs, have signed an exclusive distribution agreement for DKSH to introduce, promote, market, distribute and sell FF Chemicals’ toxin binders, butyrates and also, to a certain extent, unique and newly developed acidifiers, in Indonesia, Malaysia, the Philippines, Thailand and Vietnam.
Under the agreement, DKSH will exclusively introduce, promote, market, distribute and sell FF Chemicals’ MultiYeast, FermAcid NG Plus and Toxybind for animal species in the five countries; Bact Acid FP and acidifiers for aquatic species in the five countries; and Bact acid FLA and LP in Indonesia. FF Chemicals is a Dutch family-owned company that specializes in the production of innovative blends to improve the quality of end food products and animal feedstuffs. The main ingredients of FF Chemicals’ blends are organic acids (and their calcium and sodium salts).
Due to their organic origin, these ingredients are not harmful to the environment; they are naturally degradable and are effective alternatives to antibiotics when used in the production of additives for animal feed applications.
FF Chemicals has chosen to work with DKSH for its first-class reputation in providing integrated and tailored Market Expansion Services along the entire value chain as well as for its extensive regulatory, distribution and logistics capabilities in the region. Tanja Schaffer, Vice President, Global Business Line Pharmaceutical Industry, DKSH, commented: “We are delighted to partner with FF Chemicals to promote their new generation of feed additives in some of our key Asian markets. By combining European quality with local expertise and a long and solid history in the region, we will offer the next level solutions for the animal feed market in South East Asia.” Arie van Ooijen, Technical Sales Director, FF Chemicals, added: “We are very much pleased to work together with DKSH, because of their long business history in Asia and their profound knowledge of the feed market. The combination between a market specialist like DKSH on one side and a production specialist like FF Chemicals on the other hand will provide to all customers the highest services and solutions to produce high quality, safe and profitable feed. FF Chemicals, located in the Netherlands, is a basic producer with the technical skills to produce and develop solutions which the market needs. This is important especially in an era where antibiotics need to be replaced more and more, whilst expectations from the end users are very high when it comes to feed-food safety, growth and feed conversion.”
