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.
“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.”
