Nepal seeks self-dependency towards soybean cake

The production of Soybean De-oiled Cake (DOC), one of the major raw materials for livestock and poultry feed, has now started in Nepal.

Probiotech Ind. Pvt. Ltd formally launched its new product SoyaMax amid a press conference on 18th Jan, 2010.
The company has been successfully introducing cutting edge products and technologies in the agriculture sector since a decade now.
The company under Nimbus group, which is renowned in the country for its feed brand ‘Shakti’, is confident that the production of soybean oil and DOC will completely relieve the country from import of such raw materials and even open new avenues for exports of the DOC.
New crushing plant
The production plant with a state of art technology has been installed in Birgunj with a capital of more than NRs. 300 million (€2.876m). The plant has a crushing capacity of 300 tonnes per day.
The production of Soy DOC has also addressed the quality concerns faced by the entrepreneurs while importing the raw material.
Nimbus guarantees the superiority in the product quality over the imported product.
The product which is marketed under the brand name SoyaMax is unadulterated with enhanced quality and protein content of 46%.
The company has its own inbuilt high-tech lab including NIR for the quality testing and control of the products.
