Recently, China’s Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs issued the "Notice on the Publication of the Key Labs of the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs". The application for the Key Lab of Engineering Technology of Animal Health Care Products co-submitted by Vland, Institute of Animal Science and Veterinary Medicine, Shandong Academy of Agricultural Sciences, and Shandong Agricultural University was approved.
Building key labs of the Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs with enterprises as the main body is an important measure to enhance the independent innovation capabilities and core competitiveness of enterprises, and it is also of great significance to accelerate the progress of science and technology in agriculture.
Vland, leading the application of the key lab, is mainly engaged in the R&D, production and sales of enzymes, probiotics, and animal health care products. With the only National Engineering Research Center of Animal Health Care Products in the industry, Vland has been awarded the titles of National Enterprise Technology Center, "Little Giant" Enterprise, Shandong Animal Health Care Products Technology Innovation Center, Shandong Postdoctoral Research Workstation, and International Science and Technology Cooperation Demonstration Base.
After years of development, Vland has established a stable and professional talent team including 29 doctors and 278 full-time R&D personnel.
