27.02.2015

Industrial Milk Company (IMC) is going to build a sunseed and soybean crushing plant at one of its own elevators. The plant’s capacity will approximate 350 KMT of oilseeds and will be launched in early 2019. In addition, Industrial Milk Company wants to increase its land bank to 300 Th ha by 2019 against the present 140 Th ha.

The company intends to keep the focus on cultivation of a limited number of more remunerative crops, with a gradual expansion of soy plantings (up one-quarter) and a corn acreage reduction (down two times). By increasing the land bank, IMC is going to boost oilseeds cultivation to 280 KMT by 2019, including 178 KMT of soybeans and 102 KMT of sunseed.
