The meeting, organized by EW Nutrition and held in the Eastin Grand Hotel Saigon (Ho Chi Minh City) was well attended by representatives of the commercial poultry industry of Vietnam, including some of the largest integrated companies, feedmills and hatcheries, as well as universities of southern Vietnam. The meeting is a good example that illustrates how the industry is moving forward trying to find alternatives to conventional antimicrobials. Some of these products act by improving flock and gut health as well as having antibacterial activity.
