USSEC Helps AGP, Fornazor Resume AminoPlus Shipments to Poland
- General News
USSEC activities beginning in August 2013 have resulted in helping AGP to build trade relations with a new partner in Poland, which culminated in the first two containers of AminoPlus, AGP’s U.S. manufactured bypass soymeal, being shipped to Poland’s large and quickly progressing dairy market. ETOS, a small, yet aggressive, local feed company, took over the role as the exclusive importer and distributor of AGP and Fornazor from another Polish firm, which had introduced AminoPlus to Polish dairy farms a few year ago, but, after initial success, ceased its efforts to build the market for the product.
For several years, USSEC had provided extensive assistance to AGP’s Hungarian and Slovakian subsidiaries to identify local distributors, complete AminoPlus feeding trials, carry out promotional and educational seminars in four Northeast European countries, and organize visits of U.S. dairy experts, which greatly contributed to the original success of the product in that part of Europe.
USSEC recently assisted the U.S. and Polish partners to carry out their first seminar for Polish dairymen in Golina, Poland, on April 25. Dr. David Gast, Director of Nutrition & Technical Services, AGP-Omaha, discussed the benefits of AminoPlus as a U.S. bypass soybean product for improved performance in dairy cattle. USSEC Technical Director - Northeast Europe Jerzy Kosieradzki assisted with translation and also spoke on behalf of U.S. soybean farmers to offer assistance to the newly formed partnership and their Polish dairy clients by providing cutting edge knowledge.
