Indonesia has the world’s fourth-largest population, with demand for animal protein rapidly increasing.

With her expertise, Betty will lead an engaged and customer-focused team in delivering these products to the market.
“We are extremely excited to welcome Betty to the Amlan team,” says Fred Kao, Vice President of Global Sales, Amlan International. “Indonesian producers are looking for new, alternative solutions to maintain their animals’ health. With her decades of experience, Betty will be a great asset in providing our natural, mineral-based solutions to meet that demand.”

Betty holds a degree in veterinary medicine from Institut Pertanian Bogor.
