Berg + Schmidt - Animal Nutrition has unveiled a new subsidiary in Dubai, Berg and Schmidt Middle East Trading LLC. The strategic move will allow the company to respond to the growing demand for feed additives and offer clients enhanced customer service in the Gulf Cooperation Council states (GCC).
The group’s CEO Torsten Wywiol attended the grand opening ceremony in August, underlining the importance of this key business decision. By opening a warehouse in UAE, Berg + Schmidt will enhance the distribution of the company’s specialties such as LipoVital™ functional lipids, LipoAktiv™ rumen protected glucose and amino acids, BergaFat™ fat powders, lecithins, trace minerals and emulsifiers within the Middle East region for poultry, ruminants and aquaculture.
The Middle East feed market is rapidly expanding, especially for broilers, aquaculture, dairy and beef. The Gulf States such as Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Bahrain and Oman have an ever-increasing need for livestock feed but also a huge demand for innovative feed additives that support the health and performance of the animals.
Torsten Wywiol, CEO of the Stern-Wywiol Gruppe, the parent company of Berg + Schmidt, said that “the feed market in the Middle East is prosperous and we are proud that we can now support the branch with our expertise and an optimized supply chain. Our commitment to continuous research, service and customer orientation are major pillars of our success. Therefore, the opening of a subsidiary in Dubai which will enhance our offering in the Middle East is the right move.”
