Gresik — Meeting global demand for Megalac®
VWFI have constructed a state-of-the-art manufacturing facility for feed fat production in Gresik, Indonesia. It represents a significant investment in the Megalac® brand and increasing capability to meet global demand for the leading rumen-protected fat.
Gresik enhances VWFI’s global reach and its location in Southeast Asia means raw materials can be easily accessed. With the ongoing uncertainty of Brexit and the potential impact on European markets, Gresik will not only provide continuity of supply for VWFI's high-quality products, but also facilitate the development and supply of new markets for the feed fat business.
Construction of the 10,000 square metre facility began in January 2018 and the first batch of Megalac® was produced on 23 December 2018. In February 2019 the first shipments of finished product were made to customers in North America and Europe.
The newly-formed Gresik team is headed by Tulus Hutagalung and supported by experienced colleagues from Pasir Gudang and Liverpool. Factory operators have been trained at VWFI’s Malaysian factory and there is great confidence that the team will be able to run Gresik at full capacity very soon.
