Representatives of Israeli company LR Group have signed an agreement with Kazakhstan’s National Managing Holding KazAgro to construct a beef-producing facility facility near Almaty, KazTAG reports citing IzRus.
“Last week representatives of Israeli company LR Group signed an agreement with KazAgro national holding and a private Kazakhstan company on construction of a unique beef production complex near Almaty,” the message states. The parties agreed to “construct a huge full-cycle beef production facility".
The facility is expected to reach the production level of 5 thousand tons of meat per year within 3 years.
According to the head of the Bilateral Israel-Kazakhstan Chamber of Commerce Mikhael Roe accountable for organization of the talks between the parties, this is a unique project. “This is the first time Israel is going to invest in a project and not just sell technologies or goods. KazAgro will become one of the sponsors of this facility,” Roe said. He also said that the planned project had no equivalents in the region.
“Special fodders will be grown at the farm and an automated system will process them and feed the animals. Butchering, storage, packing and even delivery to major trade networks will be based on Israeli technologies. The complex will also have special freezers manufactured in Israel. But that’s not all. The process will also involve recycling of wastes: biological fuel will be produced from animal waste products. Such fuel is normally used to generate electric power,” representative of the Chamber of Commerce said.
“Kazakhstan will be able to present this project at the EXPO-2017 exhibition in Astana in 4 years,” he stressed. The project’s cost and its implementation dates are unknown yet.
