In the first quarter of 2015 Russian agricultural holding Miratorg has increased the volume of animal feed production by 3% compare to the same period of last year to 268,300 tonnes.
The company’s feed division currently includes three plants in Belgorod Oblast and one plant in Bryansk Oblast, with a total capacity of 1.54 million tonnes per year, which makes it the largest producer of animal feed in the country.
The increase in production has been achieved primarily by improving efficiency at the feed mills in Belgorod Oblast, according to Miratorg. “Thanks to the introduction of a new production system that involves the continuous improvement of product quality, while reducing losses and expenses, we were able to increase annual capacity of the Prokhorovsky feed mills in the Belgorod Oblast to 896,000 tonnes,” said the head of the feed milling department Vladimir Orlenko.
Miratorg invested US$ 11 million in a program to increase efficiency.
