Ukraine. A potato processing plant to be launched in 2018


Vimal Group (Chernihiv region) intends to launch a third potato processing plant with a daily capacity of 1440 MT in September 2018.

The new plant is being constructed with technical support from Denmark’s Sicca Dania.

Apart from potato starch, the new plant is designed to produce pharmaceutical starch and special starch for yeast production. The launch of a plant producing protein from potato juice, dry potato fibers and liquid organic fertilizer is scheduled for 2020. Technical potato protein is a readily marketable feed protein product, while food potato protein is an excellent feedstock for the food industry.

Noteworthy is that Vimal Group is Ukraine’s top producer and exporter of potato starch, reports UkrAgroConsult.

Vimal supplies its products to more than 25 countries of the world, including Germany, the Netherlands, the Czech Republic, Poland, Lithuania, Russia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Thailand and China.
