Feed producer BioMar has appointed Franck Bodin as managing director for its new feed business unit in Vietnam.

Bodin is a well-known figure in the Vietnamese aquaculture industry and was the founder of the aquafeed company Tomboy, which was acquired by Skretting in 2010.

During the last several years he has been consulting on several projects within the aquaculture industry.

"We have an ambitious growth strategy for our joint venture together with Viet Uc Group, and I believe Franck will be highly valuable for the business," said Francois Loubere, vice president of BioMar's Asia division.
