INDONESIA - Food and agribusiness giant San Miguel Corporation (SMC) is reportedly planning to establish a modern feed mill in Manado, Indonesia in a bid to produce cheaper feed products for Mindanao's animal and halal poultry industries. Undersecretary Virgilio Leyretana, chair of the Mindanao Economic and Development Council (Medco), said the company has signified to develop Manado and other areas in Indonesia's North Sulawesi province as primary source of cheaper corn and other raw materials for its feed processing operations. He said one of the company's initial considerations in putting up a plant in Manado is to supply the needs of the halal poultry industry for corn-based feeds. Source: Minda News
