Cargill to Triple its Mideast and African Feed Business
Cargill Animal Nutrition, Middle East and Africa (MEA) has expressed its target of tripling its business across the regions in the coming years.
Reflecting its commitment, MEA has invested in a new premix and base mix facility in Pieternaritzburg, South Africa, raising the bar for feed safety in the region, and has more recently acquired the remaining 25 percent it did not already own in South African Provimi branded premix nutritional business from Astral Foods.
Cargill also has broken ground on a $37 million facility including a premix plant and state-of-the-art laboratories near Amman, Jordan, that will act to support the company’s Provimi branded feed business serving the poultry, ruminant, and fish production industries.
Elsewhere, the company created a new Cargill Technology Application Center (TAC) in Izmir, Turkey, that will assist dairy and poultry farmers across the Middle East, Turkey, and Africa and employ the most up-to-date feed technologies in their business models.
