New feed plant for Brunei

Brunei's aspiration towards a self-sustaining economy through diversification was given a boost following the foundation laying of the first local animal food manufacturing plant that could start operations as early as the first quarter of next year.

Acting Minister of Industry and Primary Resources, Dato Paduka Haji Hamdilah bin Hj Abd Wahab applauded the efforts of the local company, Berjaya Makmur Sdn Bhd, in trying to compete with overseas importers of animal feed. He was confident that with hard work as well as support and cooperation from local poultry farmers and an effective marketing plan, the company will become more successful.

Supplying the need for animal feed

Representative of Berjaya Makmur Sdn Bhd, Awang Hj Abdullah bin Hj Metahir, said, "The plant will be equipped with two types of machines that can process animal feed. The first machine processes animal feed for cows, goats and chicken, while the other will process food for fishes and prawns. The plant is capable of producing up to 67,000 metric tonnes of animal feed each year, which means that this company will be more than enough to supply the needs of animal feed in the country," he added.
