01-09-2011 | |

Vano Group, parent company of Rasun Poultry, the Ross Grandparent (GP) distributor in Iraq, has recently completed and commissioned a state-of-the-art feed mill just outside the city of Erbil.

The new mill is part of ongoing strategy to support and boost the poultry industry in Iraq with quality poultry rations. Quality-finished feed product and feed hygiene was top of the priority list when it came to construction.
Based on a 14-hour working day, the new facility is able to produce 210 tons of high-quality mash feed each day.
The mill is fully automated and capable of producing feed for grandparent stock (GPS), Parent Stock (PS) and broilers.
Competitive advantage
“The new mill is in a great location to supply our customers in Iraq and Kurdistan. It gives us a real competitive advantage and, combined with the genetic quality of the Ross bird, a superb package for the market,” said Dr. Salah M. Bakir, Chairman and CEO of Vano Group.
“We have worked hard training staff and have developed a consultancy service to offer advice to our customers on feed issues. It is already a bit of a landmark as is our state-of- the art feed mill in the country.”
