Vietnam— Scoular, one of the leading feedstuffs, grains, and oilseeds distributors in Indonesia and Myanmar, is expanding its Asia-Pacific distribution Footprint to Vietnam.

A 130-year-old company with US$6 billion in sales, Scoular creates safe and reliable supply chain solutions for end-users and suppliers of grain, feed ingredients, and food ingredients.

From its more than 100 offices and facilities in North America and Asia, Scoular’s 1,000-plus employees lead the way by buying, selling, storing, handling and processing grain and ingredients as well as managing transportation and logistics for customers around the world.

“Scoular is driven by growth, curiosity, and creating solutions for our customers,” said Adrian Gasparian, president of Scoular Asia.

As the 16th most populous country in the world, Vietnam is a key importer of agricultural commodities with a large and growing market in that segment.

Scoular has hired two employees in Vietnam and expects to employ up to 12 additional employees, including a country manager, within the coming months.

“We are excited to continue expanding our presence in the region. Scoular invests in ways that solve problems and add value for our customers and suppliers, and many of our customers already have a footprint in Vietnam.”

Scoular leaders are meeting with customers in Vietnam this month to determine the best combination of assets and investments that will add value to their business. Gasparian said he anticipates imports and distribution to begin by the end of 2022.

Vietnam is Scoular’s most recent geographic expansion in the Asia-Pacific over the last several years. That includes expanding its regional headquarters and trade office in Singapore and its soybean cleaning and distribution operations in Indonesia.

The company also augmented its feedstuffs and grain distribution operations in Indonesia and Myanmar, where it also set up a fishmeal facility to provide high-quality, consistent and quick delivery of marine proteins to Asian feed markets.
