Suguna opens India’s largest feed mill

India’s largest poultry company, Suguna Poultry opened India’s largest feed mill in Ekrajapura Village, Sulibele Hobli, Hoskote in Bangalore Rural district.

Minister for Labour, Bache Gowda, inaugurated the state-of-the-art feed mill
at Hoskote which was established with an investment of Rs.55 crore (€
8.35m).

This modern feed mill will benefit about 2,000 farmers in
Karnataka while providing direct employment to over 800 people and indirect
employment to about 2000.

The feed mill, which will source about 1,500
tonnes of raw materials per day from maize-cultivating farmers in and around
Karnataka, will produce mash, pellets and crumbles.

Large storage
capacity
This highly-automated mill will produce 1,500 tonnes of feed per
day to supply to all broiler contract farms and parent stock farms in the
regions of Karnataka and Andhra.

This completely automated feed mill has
an inbuilt facility to store 12,000 tonnes of maize, 4,000 t of soy in steel
silos, around 5,000 t of finished product and 3,000 t of other
ingredients.

The feed mill is powered by a 2.5 MW eco-friendly Bio-Fuel
plant preventing generation of green house gases and earning precious carbon
credits.

Improve standard of living
B. Soundararajan, Managing
Director, Suguna Poultry Farm Ltd., said, “This state-of-the-art feed mill will
not only provide employment opportunities to the region but also enable the
farmers cultivating maize to sell at better prices to Suguna, thereby improving
the standard of living of the people.”

“Suguna Poultry Farm Limited is a
fully integrated poultry enterprise committed to the food service industry. This
integration affords us total quality process control throughout the production
process from hatching of eggs to the retail broiler market. Our mission is to
provide the highest quality product with an unequalled commitment to
service.”

“Hoskote was the perfect choice for putting up this plant due
to availability of maize and soy at economical rates, water availability
throughout the year and availability of abundant skilled labour”, he
added.
