Nutriad, multinational feed additives manufacturer, continues to invest in aquaculture as it announced the appointment of Dr. Poonmanee Kanjanaworakul as Technical Commercial Manager Aquaculture Thailand. A pioneer in species specific additive solutions, Nutriad is determined to further grow its presence across key markets in Asia Pacific.  

“Positioning aquaculture specialists in local markets is an integral part of our strategy, allowing us to be close to our customers around the world. Thailand is one of the leading countries in Asia when looking at aquaculture farming technology. The country is recovering its shrimp production from AHPND/EMS disease outbreaks and expected to reach over 350KMt in 2017. It has a diversified production of freshwater and marine fish that can benefit from Nutriad’s specialized additives and services promoting shrimp and fish health. Our ambition is to continue to provide practical solutions  aimed at reducing the impact of diseases on productivity.”, says Dr. Peter Coutteau, Business Unit Director Aquaculture for Nutriad.

Allen Wu, Regional Manager Aquaculture APAC further commented: “With a MSc in Aquatic animal nutrition and a PhD in Biotechnology from Kasetsart University, Dr. Poonmanee has a very suitable background to take up this challenging job. Her experience in farm-oriented sales in the aquaculture sector in Thailand allows her to combine in depth scientific knowledge with a hands on approach, that fits very well with the Nutriad strategy.”
