With an eye toward the immense potential for fish feed sales in the eastern region of India, Anmol Group has set up a new plant in West Bengal.
Anmol Group Managing Director Amit Saraogi told SeafoodSource on the sidelines of the Compound Feed Manufacturers Association (CLMFA) meeting held in Mumbai recently that the new plant, which has a 100-ton daily capacity, will cater to West Bengal, Odisha, and North East states, where there is good demand for feed.
Saraogi said that the company, which operates swine, poultry and dairy feed plants in addition to its aquaculture feed plants, had invested INR 300 million (USD 4.60 million, EUR 3.85 million) in setting up the plant, of which 70 percent has come from company resources and the balance 30 percent is a term loan from banks.
Currently, the factory is running at 50 percent capacity, “but very soon we will operate at full capacity,” Saraogi said, pointing to the company’s hopes to export its feed to countries like Bangladesh, Bhutan, and Myanmar.
