Today the SEZ “Lotus” Supervisory Council chaired by the acting Governor of the Astrakhan Region Sergey Morozov took place on the territory of the shipyard “Lotos” (the part United Shipbuilding Corporation). The Supervisory Council considered the business plan of the investment project “Construction of a plant for the production of fry and productional feeds for aquaculture facilities” by JSC "Rybniye Korma".
The total volume of investment is more than 1.3 billion rubles. The estimated production capacity of the process is 50 thousand tons of feed per year starting from September 2022.
The company "Rybniye Korma" developed feed which mainly includes raw materials grown in the Astrakhan Region. It created recipes and biotechnologies for feed protein components processing which allow to use soybean, canola and cotton meal, as well as feather meal and meat and bone waste of poultry-processing industry as the main source of protein. This technology allows to increase the degree of protein digestibility up to 86-92% and to stop using imported soybean meal.
The project is aimed at replacement of imported products in the consumer region, as well as to improve the competitiveness of fish farms of the Astrakhan Region under the conditions of imported feeds prices rising.
