ABN to Build One-Million-Ton Super Mill in the UK
UK-based compound feed manufacturer ABN (a part of AB Agri) is planning to build a one-million-ton pig and poultry feed mill in the East of England.
ABN stated that it believes that as the UK’s population approaches 77 million by 2050, pig and poultry production will need to significantly increase to meet protein demand, which will consequently drive similar demand for pig and poultry feed.
This super-mill represents the largest investment in the sector in the UK, and once completed, will provide a sustainable solution to the industry which is operating close to capacity, but will likely need to expand in the near future.
The company, which currently operates 11 mills in the UK, is currently considering a number of sites in the east of the country, however the timing of construction or a potential opening of the mill is still undetermined.
