Turkey integrator Procavi opens new feed mill

Total investment was  3,2 million and production capacity is around 40 tonnes per hour, enough to daily feed 1,2 million turkeys. The company, with a market share of 39pc and owned by the Fuertes Group, has invested more than  12 million in the last two years aimed at increasing its competitiveness and business efficiency. The facility has two production lines using the latest technologies and most of the processes are fully automated. Once fully operational the mill will create 14 direct jobs and 70 indirect jobs. The construction of this new feed plant of Procavi meets the objective of controlling the entire production cycle from feeding animals to marketing of the product, ensuring full traceability and adjusting “to the most stringent food safety measures,” according to the company. The new mill will supply the farms in the provinces of Seville and Huelva, while the second feed mill in Campillos, provides the feed to the production centres around Malaga.With the commissioning of this facility Procavi covers the expected growth in the coming years, which is around 40pc. The short-term objective is to increase slaughtering capacity from 125.000 animals to over 180.000 birds per week. At Procavi 535 workers are employed. Turnover in the last financial year 2010 was  100.5 million, up 19pc over the previous year. “The hatchery, the most efficient, modern bio-safe and the world has a higher production capacity of 250.000 eggs a week and its annual production exceeds 55 million kilos, equivalent to more than seven million turkeys processed,” company manager Alfonso Serrano said.
