Indonesia's Sierad to construct poultry breeding factory
A poultry breeding factory in Lebak, Banten, will be built by Indonesia's PT Sierad Produce by next year with an investment of IDR350 billion (US$39 million).
Poultry director of Sierad Produce Sudirman said the new factory to be built over a 200 hectare plot of land will breed broilers.
Currently, the country's largest producer of poultry still import breeder chickens from the US and EU.
Sudirman said that poultry industry in the country has no facility yet to produce pure line breeder chickens.
