On Wednesday 15 November, Manit Farm and INVE Aquaculture organized a technical training for Manit Farm’s marketing and sales team to strengthen their knowledge about the efficient use of probiotics in tilapia farming. As a leading supplier of high quality tilapia fry and feed Manit Farm distributes INVE Aquaculture’s products to farmers throughout Thailand.
- Dr. David Moriarty, Honorary Senior Fellow at The University of Queensland, introduced the concept of probiotics. David, with his many years of experience in microbial ecology in 1980’s and 1990’s, was very influential to the development of INVE Aquaculture’s probiotics during his time with us some years ago.
- Mr. Frederic Jozwiak, our Technical Manager Farm & Feedmill, gave an overview of the tilapia situation in Brazil and detailed the successful partnership with a Brazilian integrated company. He also reviewed lab and field data confirming the efficacy of the INVE Aquaculture’s probiotics.
- Dr. Olivier Decamp, our Product Manager Farm & Feedmill, reviewed the unique value proposition of INVE Aquaculture’s probiotics for Thai tilapia farmers. Cost-benefit ratio, ease of use, safety and competitiveness of two products sold in Thailand (Secure POND and Secure YIELD) were discussed.
The translation of the presentation and exchange of information and ideas was carried out by Mr. Tavatchai Chidchomsrichantra. The training session was followed by a meal with all attendees.
