n 2018, 102 global animal
feed manufacturers achieved
Top Feed Company status
by meeting or exceeding 1
million metric tons of compound
feed production, according
to WATTAgNet.com's Top
Companies database. The 2019
Top Feed Companies report and
the rankings of last year's largest
global feed producers were
derived from the exclusive feed
industry data compiled by WATT
Global Media's research team.
To capture the most accurate
information, Feed Strategy's annual
Top Feed Companies analysis
focuses on the previous calendar
year's compound feed volumes.
The figures presented in the
2019 Top Feed Companies report
are a reflection of the global feed
industry's expansion and broader
animal protein production trends.

Feed production leaders

Ranking highlights

The top 102 feed-producing companies manufactured more than 395.6
million metric tons of compound
feed in 2018. To put this in perspective, according to Feed Strategy's
June 2019 World Feed Production
Trends (WFPT), 2018's global
compound feed production volume
topped 928.5 million metric tons,
meaning these companies represent
43% of the world's tonnage.
From a regional perspective,
many of the firms featured in this
year's listing are headquartered in
Asia (46) and in Europe (29). Eleven
are located in North America, seven
in South America, five in
Africa, three in the Middle East, and
one is located in Australia.

Some of the ranking changes
since 2017 can be attributed to the
discovery of new or updated data;
however, others are influenced by
market conditions, acquisitions
or circumstances unique to the
company. Keeping that in mind,
here are several 2018 Top Feed
Companies ranking highlights:
ForFarmers (No. 8) overtook
Tyson (No. 9) for the first time,
in part due to the acquisition
of European feed businesses in
2018. Acquisitions also assisted in
bumping up De Heus two slots to
No. 11. This year, Wellhope AgriTech makes its debut at No. 28.
The Chinese company is majority
owned by De Heus, but its feed
