China's CGOG to invest US$10 million poultry plant in Mozambique
CGOG Africa, the Mozambican subsidiary of China Grains and Oils Group Corp, will invest US$ 10 million in a project to produce chicken in the Dondo district of the central province of Sofala.
Provincial officials said the Chinese-led project also includes the construction of a grain factory and a chicken-processing plant. The venture, which will initially produce 30,000 tonnes of chicken meat annually, will also create 50 jobs, he added.
The operations are expected to start within this year.
