Essentica had a stand at the largest animal exhibition Zootechnia in Thessaloniki. The event took place between 2 and 5 February 2017 at the Helexpo fairground. Zootechnia is the only fair in Greece and on the Balkan Peninsula in general that specializes in livestock. The latest developments in the sector are presented here and the biggest livestock and poultry farmers are given the opportunity to meet the leading manufacturers of products designed for their industry. As leader on the Balkans, Essentica presented part of its portfolio. Visitors to the exhibition were particularly attracted by the company’s DDGS, Dried Distillers Grain with Solubles, which is a byproduct from ethanol production. DDGS is becoming the preferred addition to the fodder for milk animals as it increases milk yield by approximately 30% while being a natural product without GMO.

Helexpo attracts nearly 850 exhibitors from 37 countries and the number of visitors is expected to exceed 50 thousand.
