Bangladesh: Aviator poultry feed supplement launched

Aviator, a global nutritious poultry feed supplement, was launched in the Bangladeshi domestic market recently. The product was launched at a ceremony and scientific seminar on Aviator. Aviator has already been launched in India early this year, according the Financial Express.

Wilts Marketing Company, a local company, will distribute the poultry feed supplement, manufactured by a US-based company, Varied Industries Corporation (Vi-COR). It will be available here from next month. Detailed research has been conducted on the effect of Aviator in broiler diets.

Director General of Directorate of Livestock Dr Mosaddek Hossain was the chief guest at the programme which was addressed, among others, by Prof Priya Mohan Das, head, department of pathology, Bangladesh Agricultural University, Heidi Rooney, international marketing manager of Vi-Cor, John Oppy, vice president of Vi-Cor, and Shamsul Huda, managing director of Wilts Marketing.

“Aviator is an ideal nutrition premix of poultry feed that helps develop the digestive process of birds, ensuring growth and productivity at a significant pace,” Mr Huda said.

The feed supplement replaces products in poultry diets that contain MOS (mannan oligosaccharide), beta glucans, and other all-natural ingredients. It combines all these components into a single, convenient formulation that delivers multiple benefits for broilers and layers at all stages of growth, officials said.

One kg of the feed supplement needs to be mixed with 1,000 kg of poultry feed for both the birds. Welcoming the new product in the local poultry market, Mr Mosaddek Hossain, DG of Livestock, sought all-out support from the foreign companies and pharmaceutical institutions to develop and flourish the sector having immense potentials in Bangladesh.

The director general of livestock, however, expressed unhappiness saying that despite livestock contributed 55% of the country’s total animal protein, it doesn’t have any quality control lab though the fisheries department has more than one lab.

He also criticised the higher educational institutions like Agriculture University saying that the experts there are yet to do effective research and make suggestions for the industry though their professional and moral responsibility is to propel the sector by giving creative ideas and pragmatic findings.
