Ukrainian Group of Companies Effective Investments and Dutch Mada Participations B.V. announced the construction of the FeedNova production facility for the production of high-protein feed additives and animal fats in the city of Busk (Lviv region). The plant is worth $ 20 million.
The project will be the first in Ukraine to process raw materials from external suppliers. The new complex will include four production lines that will process more than 220 tons of raw materials per day. The total capacity of the plant will allow to produce about 90 tons of finished products per day. The plant design is designed to meet the requirements of international certification in accordance with ISO 22000 and HACCP standards. This will allow the company to export products worldwide.
“The problem of animal by-products processing is urgent for the whole country, especially given the active development of the industry. Our plant will be a powerful solution to this problem. Sustainable development of the region’s livestock and food industry is simply not possible without a developed by-waste treatment infrastructure. That is why we plan to set up at least two more companies in the central part of the country and in the south,” – said Igor Liski, Chairman of the Supervisory Board of Effective Investments Group.
It is also important that production will be concerned with the processing of animal by-products, not with the disposal of waste. In addition, the introduction of European quality standards at all stages of the enterprise will allow to change outdated practices of waste management of animal origin.
“It should be emphasized that thanks to such investments, jobs with decent pay are created on the one hand, and on the other – it stimulates the development of adaptability in industry. Consequently, value chain efficiency increases. In particular, the launch of this plant is crucial for the development of the country’s livestock industry,” – said Serhiy Nikolaychuk, Deputy Minister of Economic Development, Trade and Agriculture of Ukraine.
Mykola Moroz, Director General of the Directorate for Food Safety and Quality, also stressed the importance of investor arrival for the modernization of a promising production sector. He noted that quality waste treatment should be an integral part of the livestock and food industries.
The plant will be equipped with a complete set of state-of-the-art process equipment for filtration of all types of emissions, which will minimize the environmental impact of production.
“We, in management, have focused not only on attracting investments, but also on the support of investors and the project. These include companies and teams that can create jobs and add budget. For me, the ideas that the project carries and the purpose of creating it are personally important to me. I am convinced that FeedNova will improve all the livestock infrastructure in our and related areas,” – said Roman Matis, Head of Investment Policy, Lviv Regional State Administration.
As an export-oriented company, FeedNova will become the region’s new budgetary center. The plant will create more than 80 jobs and introduce a corporate responsibility program. The company is open to dialogue with the Busk community as well as with industry representatives.
FeedNova is a modern enterprise for the production of high-protein feed additives and animal fats for farm and pet animals. The company is an investment project of the group of companies Effective Investments and the Dutch company Mada Participations B.V.
The company will provide services for the collection, transportation and processing of animal by-products. Innovative technologies, strict adherence to international quality standards and transparent conditions of cooperation are the main priorities of the company.
