International Desk: Alltech Bangladesh is delighted to announce a first-time collaboration with Advent Pharma Limited (APL), focusing on delivering Alltech dairy products solutions directly to farmers. This collaboration creates new opportunities to help spread Alltech products with technologies more rapidly in every corner of the country.
Alltech, the global animal nutrition leader, started its journey in 1980 with a vision for the well-being of animals, consumers and the environment. More than 40 years later, Alltech operates in more than 120 countries, with more than 80 production facilities and 5 bioscience centers.
Advent Pharma Ltd. started its journey 15 years ago in Bangladesh with a dream to support farmers with quality products. Their shared passion for providing valuable services to customers and ensuring sustainable growth makes a collaboration between Alltech and Advent Pharma Limited. a perfect fit.
Ensuring sustainable growth by introducing innovative products, Advent prioritizes quality, efficient delivery and providing required services to stakeholders. It explores opportunities and investment in the sector to fulfill the increasing demand for veterinary drugs and nutritional supplements in the existing local market.
Advent Pharma Ltd. works directly with dairy farmers, with a large sales force that can easily reach every dairy farm in the country. This on-the-ground access will help promote Alltech solutions in the local farming market rather than the feed-producing industry. Alltech and Advent Pharma Ltd. will work together to offer maximum benefit to the farmers through product quality, market availability, increase in production and economic advantages.
Bangladesh’s dairy market has grown significantly in the last few years. A recent statistic showed that Bangladesh is currently ranked among the 25 largest milk-producing countries worldwide. Feed industry owners are now more focused on producing dairy feed, and farmers are also paying more attention to developing dairy farming to meet growing demand. These developments in the sector, along with rising material prices and scarcity of resources, make now the perfect time to introduce farmers to Alltech products and solutions.
Advent shares the Alltech vision of Working Together for a Planet of Plenty™. They believe that together, we can provide nutrition for all, revitalize local economies and replenish the planet’s natural resources. Advent strives for global veterinary pharmaceutical market success by meeting the countries’ increasing demand for animal healthcare. The collaboration between Alltech and Advent will expand the way both companies work to achieve animal well-being by saving natural resources and providing nutrition for all. Alltech offers the best quality solutions by ensuring proper QC process, and Advent can promote these solutions on the farm level. Alltech and Advent are the perfect pair to work in parallel for a better future for the animal industry.
Alltech’s proven organic mineral and live yeast products with technologies enable farmers to utilize the full potential of their animals, efficiently increasing the overall production of milking cows and calves.
“Our belief is that agriculture has the greatest potential to positively influence the future of our planet, to provide nutrition for all and to help rural communities thrive and replenish our planet’s resources,” said Dr. Mark Lyons, president and CEO of Alltech.
Advent Pharma Ltd. will promote Alltech Bioplex® Dairy Max and Yea-Sacc® supplement to dairy and beef farms throughout the country. Bioplex organic minerals help support animal immunity, reinforce reproductive function and maintain performance in lactating cows. Yea-Sacc helps to reduce fluctuations in rumen PH, promote nutrient digestion and sustain higher milk production. Farmers using both products will see increased production, leading to higher profitability for the business. These benefits will also help convince farmers across the country to become more engaged in sustainable dairy farming.
There is also an opportunity to create employment in rural areas. Increased production will enable farmer to grow their farms and production facilities to create jobs for local communities.
“The use of organic trace minerals in the form of Bioplex® can boost the accessibility of essential nutrients while enriching the sustainability and performance of the animal,” Steve Elliott, global director of Alltech’s Mineral Division, said. “Alltech has proven chelation technology, which can provide minerals to animals in a form as close as possible to what is found in nature.”
“Bangladesh is entering a new era of collaboration, and the route to farms will expand new opportunities,” said Dr. Sayed Aman, Alltech’s managing director – India and regional director – South Asia. “The collaboration between Alltech and Advent Pharma Ltd will bring technologies at dairy and beef farmers doorstep to support their business growth sustainably.”
“The Bangladesh dairy industry is now in a phase of expansion, making this the right time to act differently,” said Khaleduzzaman Shamim, Alltech business development manager – Ruminants– Bangladesh. “The collaboration between Advent Pharma and Alltech will create opportunities to the huge number of smallholder cattle farmers who own a large share of the national cattle herd. With Alltech strategic marketing and capacity development support, Advent Pharma will be able to successfully distribute products to all corners of Bangladesh.”
Product value packages will also be available so that farmers can benefit from a range of Alltech products with technologies. Advent Pharma Ltd. supports Alltech as it aids the evolution of the rural farming community and works together for a sustainable future.
