Miratorg, Russia’s largest feed producer, has invested RUB 380 million (USD$11 million) to increase plant capacity at their Ivnyansky feed mill by 30% (to 340,000 tonnes per year).

Miratorg Agribusiness Holding currently operates four fodder plants in Belgorod and Bryansk regions with a total production capacity of 1.46 million tonnes, which currently meets all the feed requirements of the holding.

Miratorg remains focused on the production of feed for its pig breeding division, with its feed division producing both loose and pelleted compound feeds for different age groups of animals.

The Belkom feed mill plant is equipped with the most modern equipment and its the feed production in the plant is highly automated, according to the representatives of the agricultural holding.

General Director Sergei Larionov said: “The need to increase production capacity by 30% at Belkom is primarily due to the expansion of the pig breeding division in the Kursk region. The upgrade, worth more than 380 million rubles and will include launching of a new line of shipping and pelleting, as well as increasing of storage capacities through the construction of a raw material warehouse.”
