Cargill said it has completed a USD12.5 million expansion of its Pietermaritzburg, South African premix facility. The company said the expansion was driven by customer demand for animal feed products.
The company said the expanded facility includes new equipment, technology and resources to increase efficiency and improve product quality in an area of sub-Saharan Africa that is experiencing growth.
The state-of-the-art facility combines the latest feed safety technology and product quality capabilities, including automated barcode scanning and ingredient dosing. The design provides operational flexibility and minimal cross-contamination risk. The Pietermaritzburg facility positions the company to achieve its growth plans through increased production capacity and flexibility in product manufacturing, packaging and logistics.
President and business leader of Cargill Animal Nutrition's premix business David Webster said, "In addition to producing animal feed products that contribute to feeding billions of animals, which ultimately reach the dinner tables of more than one billion people every day, our Pietermaritzburg facility employees support the local community and provide assistance to many worthy organizations."
