Hamlet Protein targets Latin America

“Supported by our state of the art production facilities in Denmark and USA, Hamlet Protein has managed to create leading positions in Europe, North America and Asia. Our coverage in Latin America has been relatively limited so far, but we strongly believe we can support local producers through our high quality portfolio, knowledge transfer and exceptional service level,”commented Hamlet Protein CEO Erik Visser.

Dr. Jose Luis Laparra, a veterinarian and nutritionist, will cover Mexico and Central America. Dr. Laparra graduated from the Veterinarian School at the National Autonomous University of Mexico (UNAM) and obtained his master degree in Animal Nutrition from the University of Wisconsin-Madison (US).

Angela Mejia, veterinarian and zoo-technical engineer, will support Hamlet Protein in South America. Mrs. Mejia holds a master degree in nutrition from the Caldas University (Colombia) and has extensive experience in the animal nutrition market.

Both Dr. Laparra and Mrs. Mejia have a strong network in the industry and brings wealth of commercial and technical knowledge for supporting our distributors and customers.

“The Latin America feed market is developing rapidly and we see an increasing interest in the solutions the Hamlet Protein can provide. By combining extensive scientific data with practical insights, we can help customers formulate effective diets for young animals without antibiotics and zinc oxide,”concluded Erik Visser.

Hamlet Protein produces soy-based protein ingredients for young pig, poultry and cattle feed at two production plants in Denmark and the US. Hamlet Protein services customers around the world through a network of own sales offices and distributors.


Providing the right nutrition in the first life stage determines the overall lifetime performance of the animal. Our soy-based specialty ingredients improve health, welfare and performance of young animals. That is how we deliver a strong return on investment to producers around the world.
