Servolux Agro Company (based in Mogilev) has started to build a feed meal shop, a company representative told Interfax.
The shop will be located in the village of Mezhisetki, Mogilev District. It will process food waste into feed meal, the source specified.
The shop will be fitted with DUPPS equipment (the Netherlands).
The shop with a capacity of 10 tonnes of feed meal per shift is expected to be commissioned in December 2008. The estimated project cost is BYR 4 billion.
As was formerly reported, since 2003 Servolux had been investing heavily in the reconstruction programme at Mogilev Broiler Poultry Farm. Eventually, Mogilev Broiler Poultry Farm OJSC, was converted into Servolux Agro October 1, 2007 after Servolux Private Unitary Enterprise purchased the poultry farm as a property complex. Servolux Agro now includes the poultry farm proper, milk and meat producing facilities as well as a grocery farm.
Now that Servolux Agro has installed new hatching equipment at the poultry farms, with energy-saving technologies employed. Besides, the facilities by the Netherlands' Meyn company are expected to boost the capacity of Servolux Agro's slaughterhouse twofold.
Mogilev-based Servolux Private Unitary Enterprise (affiliated with Servolux LLC, USA) commissioned Belarus' first European-class incubator in early January 2007, which will breed young and fresh chickens for Servolux Agro.
Today Servolux Agro occupies 885 persons whose average salary is BYR 960,000 (against BYR 190,000 in 2003).
Servolux was set up in 1999 as a private trader and producer dealing in agricultural products and textiles.
The company imports basic materials for fodder production, breeding materials from Europe's large Agricultural Holding Company Nutreco (Netherlands).
Servolux also imports to Belarus swine-breeding technologies and facilities from Europe, mineral fertilisers and herbicides and insecticides from Russia.
