Dutch company has opened a new plant for the production of feed additives in the Lviv region
The plant was opened on the basis of Cowdais Ukraine.
On Friday, September 17, the Dutch company De Heus together with its Ukrainian partner Fedor Shopsky opened a new plant for the production of mineral and vitamin mixtures in the village of Khilchytsia, Lviv region.
“This project is the result of joint investments by the leader in feed production – De Heus (Netherlands) and its Ukrainian partners – Fyodor Shopsky,” the company said.
The productivity of the new plant is 1.5 thousand tons / month.
“The technology does not involve any emissions to land, water, or air,” said Shopsky, CEO of Cowdais Ukraine.
The plant will produce mineral and vitamin mixtures for the domestic market. In the future, it is also possible to export products abroad.
Cowdais Ukraine LLC is owned by D-MIX LLC, which is owned by DE HEUS ANIMAL NUTRITION BV (51%) and Shopsky (49%).
The Dutch Koudijs is a “daughter” of the De Heus feed company and exports De Heus products to more than 75 countries.
Construction of the plant began in 2020. The amount of investment amounted to 7.8 million euros, according to the Ministry of Agrarian Policy.
In May 2021, the Antimonopoly Committee of Ukraine allowed the Dutch company Royal De Heus to buy a majority stake in the Ukrainian feed manufacturer D-Mix. The joint venture agreed to operate under the Koudijs Ukraine TM. It is managed by the former owner of D-Mix Fedor Shopsky.
Founded in 1911, De Heus is an international manufacturer and exporter of a complete line of premixes, concentrates and complete feeds and is represented in 60 countries.
