Feed additives boost Ajinomoto in first half

Tokyo-based Ajinomoto made a Y42 billion ($538 million) operating profit in the first half of the fiscal year to September 30, 2011, a 0.7% increase on the Y41.7 billion from the same period of the previous year. The increase was due in part to growth in amino acids for animal feed, particularly lysine.
