US Cargill builds US$10 million feed plant in Russia
Cargill has begun construction of an animal feed mill
at its Efremov site in the Tula region of Russia, a further investment of US$10
million into the company's production facility. Production is due to commence in
2007 with a capacity of 250,000 metric tonnes per year of feed.
In recent years, Cargill
has further developed the Efremov site by
investing in a malt plant, an additional sweeteners plant using wheat and a
vegetable oil refinery, all of which will be fully operational next year.
The feed mill will benefit from its proximity to these existing facilities
and will receive almost all of its raw materials from them. These raw materials
will then be used to produce nutritional feed products for livestock
The mill will produce feed for the Russian beef
, poultry, dairy and pork
industries and also specialty value-added ingredients which can be added to
customers' existing animal feed. The mill will employ 30 locally-hired staff,
including a specialist sales and marketing team.
