Agricultural holding Altaymyasoprom will build a large feed mill in the eastern part of Russia, which will have a production capacity of 500 tonnes of feed per day and will supply feed to a new pig farm with a capacity of 300,000 pigs originating from Ireland.
The mill and the pig farm are to be built in the Altai Krai territory. Altaymyasoprom plans to run the two projects parallel to each other.
According to a press release, the company will need all the feed in order to meet the needs of pigs in the new industrial complexes. In parallel, the company will build a meat processing plant, able to produce 27 kinds of meat products.
As a result of this project Altaymyasoprom could become one of the largest suppliers of pork to Russia's Far Eastern region. It is also expected that a portion of the feed will go on the open market for sale.
