Having just recently inaugurated a new poultry feed plant in Jammu and Kashmir, Anmol Feeds has announced plans for two new facilities for the production of feeds for aquaculture species as it expands across India and beyond to neighboring countries – Bangladesh, Nepal and Bhutan.
With a total investment of INR 550 million (US$8 million), Anmol Feeds has announced its intentions to set up a new plant producing shrimp feed in Kolkata, and a facility for floating fish feeds near the border between Bihar and Uttar Pradesh, reports Economic Times.
Both of the new production units are expected to be completed within two to three years. Once operational, they will increase the firm’s total daily output from 1300 metric tons (mt) to 1500 mt, according to the firm’s managing director, Amit Saraogi.
In June, Anmol Feeds inaugurated a new feed mill at Samba in the northern state of Jammu & Kashmir (J&K), reported Kashmir Reader. Its annual capacity is 70,000 mt, most of which will be poultry feed.
“By opening our new facility in Jammu, we will be closer to our consumers in the J&K region and can better adapt our products to their needs and preferences,” said Saraogi. At the inauguration, the firm announced its new logo, and launched its Nouriture brand, which aims to propel its future feed businesses for the aquaculture and cattle sector, as well as to consolidate its poultry nutrition business.
At present, Anmol Feeds has eight state-of-the-art manufacturing plants across six states- Uttar Pradesh, Bihar, West Bengal, Jammu & Kashmir, Jharkhand and Haryana. With a cumulative production capacity of 1300 tonnes per day, the company, has been catering to the livestock feed requirements of 19 states across India.
