THAILAND - In a dignified ceremony graced by the presence of HRH Princess Chulabhorn, a total of 2,450 students of Kasetsart University (Bangkok) received their degrees on Thursday, January 8, 2015. Erich Erber, the founder of Biomin and Erber Group, was the sole recipient of the prestigious PhD hc from 2014.
The university council had already decided on 23 June, 2014, to award him the degree “Doctor of Philosophy in Animal Nutrition and Food Technology Honoris Causa”.
Biomin and Erber Group have collaborated with Kasetsart University for many years.
Erich Erber has held talks at the campus and various trials and other research work have been jointly conducted.
This fact and the overall contribution to the field of Thai agriculture and animal nutrition development led the university council to bestow the honorary degree. Kasetsart University, the oldest and largest agricultural university in Thailand, is also a talent pool from which Biomin Thailand is continuously able to tap.
“I feel very proud of this recognition and honour bestowed by this title to my lifelong work in the improvement of animal and human nutrition. I am now a proud member of the KU alumni!” said Erich Erber about this distinction.
