AUSTRADE and the Victorian Department of Agriculture facilitated a visitation by a delegation of business leaders from around the world, South-East Asia, China and the Middle East, last week to the Viplus Dairy (Viplus+ nutritional milk powder manufacturing plant at Toora).
The delegation of twenty (20) business leaders, included AGM West Hope Group (Sichuan China), KCG (Thailand) & J B Trading Co (Bangladesh) were able to view first hand state-of-the-art equipment in full operation enabling Viplus+ to transform milk powder into nutritional health formulas for its valued customers.
The delegation was particularly impressed by the modern facilities at Toora, the broad range of products and Viplus+ dedication to supporting individual customer’s unique needs.
These delegates are attending the Australia Agri-Food Innovation Summit 2016 held this week in Melbourne at which Viplus+ announced that it was working with Beijing Sports University to begin clinical trials on a new nutritional milk “Sports” drink.
Viplus+ has developed a new sports product range that is different utilizing dairy based proteins rather than vegetable or soy based proteins used in most sports recovery drinks.
ViPlus chief operating officer Peter Cunningham said about the delegation’s visit: “It was very exciting to host business leaders from our key trading nations interested in Australia’s reputation for producing the highest quality dairy products in the world.”
“We are very proud of our achievements at Viplus+ and it’s a privilege to share our story with key overseas businesses interested in increasing their trade with Australia. We strive to be true innovators at Viplus+ and look forward to working with existing and future customers to enhance the products we offer,” he said
