ABSTRACT

The company is a leading manufacturer of shrimp byproducts in Vietnam. Their products have already been sold to the USA, Japan, China, Korea and Indonesia. Focused on developing sustainable values from byproducts using biotechnology, the company is looking for new and developed technology as well as machinery to be used in protein extraction, chitin/chitosan production and food ingredient production. The type of cooperation would be commercial agreement with technical assistance or licensing.


FULL DESCRIPTION

The company was developed from the idea of recycling and making good use of seafood byproducts. It set up a zero-waste model, in which most resources released from the production of seafood are reused, recycled and recovered through biotechnology and R&D investment.

The company's product portfolio includes:
1. Feed attractants:
The company is the only company in Vietnam licensed to produce Shrimp Soluble Extract (SSE) and Squid Soluble Hydrolysate (SSH) to be used in the feed industry.
Feed formula containing these attractants have proven to enhance feed intake and growth rate as well as to decrease FCR (feed conversion rate);
2. Pharmaceutical ingredients:
Chitosan is currently the highest value-added and most advanced product among the company's portfolio resulting from heavy investment in R&D.
3. Food/spices ingredients:
With large supply of fresh and high-quality shrimp heads, the company has also developed a variety of food ingredients dividing into 2 lines:
- Powder: shrimp powder, shrimp salt, shrimp tomalley seasonings mix
- Liquid: pasteurized/condensed shrimp extract, shrimp satay, shrimp oil
4. Fertilizers.

Understanding that investment in technology is the best way to save costs and increase production efficiency, the company is looking to find European companies that can provide technology/ machinery on:
o protein extract biotechnology (enzyme, yeast, micro-organism, )
o chitin/chitosan production and purification
o food spice/ingredient production


Partner expertise sought:

- Type of partner sought: - Spray dryer
- Chitin cutting/ milling machine
- Continuous concentrator and heating/ cooling system
- Rapid testing equipment (pH, temperature, humidity, protein...)
- Odor processor (seafood by-products' odor)
- Phase separating technology (filter, settler, two phase decanter, three phase decanter, centrifuge, ...)
- Waste water treatment technology (high COD and BOD)
- Specific area of activity of the partner: Partners with new and developed technology/ machinery on protein extraction, chitin/chitosan production, food ingredient production from shrimp and especially squid by-products to reduce costs, improve production efficiency and reduce unwanted environmental impacts.
