Georgia’s largest animal feed
producer Nutrimax launches the construction of a new plant to produce
compound feed for fish that will be supplied to fish farms.
According to the company spokesperson
Revaz Lapachi, the country faces a significant shortage of this product.
“There is a very high
demand for fish feed in the local market. We’ll start production to displace
imports. At the first stage, we’ll hold 25-30% of the market share, and our
share will grow gradually. These products have not been produced in Georgia and
our company will be the first in the
country,” he notes.
In Revaz Lapachi’s words, the
construction will begin in 2022. The plant with an investment value of 2.5
million euros will produce 1 500-2 000 tons of feed per day.
“The amount of investment could change over time and
the cost of the project will be
revised,” Revaz Lapachi notes.
The Company “NUTRIMAX” since 2009 is successfully functioning on the
Georgian market and its basic aims to provide the medium and small-range
farmers with the highest quality feed, feed additives and with modern methods
of feeding of live-stock and poultry. The
company offers the compound feed to the farmers, as well as the best
quality premixes and concentrates for efficient growth of poultry and cattle.
The company is part of Trouw Nutrition Hifeed, a large Dutch
