FRiPPAK scoops ‘Best Functional Product’ in Chinese industry awards
The accolade, which was voted for by producers and industry experts via online polls and industry experts votes, included candidates that spanned China’s entire aquaculture sector, covering the country’s major farmed species.
Members of the INVE Aquaculture team, which is part of the UK-based aquaculture specialist company, Benchmark, were presented the award at a ceremony on October 13th and 14th in Zhengzhou city, China.
The awards ceremony comes ahead of the opening of the 12th Symposium of ‘World’s Chinese Scientists on Nutrition and Feeding of Finfish and Shellfish’ and the ‘2019 Chinese Development Forum of the Best Value Aquaculture Feed and Nutrition’, both of which take place in the same week.
The FRIPPAK range, which is designed for larval and post-larval production of penaeid shrimp, is engineered to reduce hatchery dependency on live feed, cutting Artemia needs by up to 50 percent without compromising survival, development and growth.
Chai Yu, Area Manager China commented:
“We’re delighted to receive this award for our FRIPPAK range. Our work is entirely focused on delivering products that benefit our customers, promoting the health of their animals and reducing dependency on live feeds.
“We think FRIPPAK is so favored by producers because it is designed with them in mind. It offers the best balance between live feed and formulated diets, contains high levels of fresh and natural ingredients, has improved buoyancy and promotes higher survival rates and shorter production cycles.”
