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&#39;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&#39;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&#39;s initial considerations in putting up a plant in Manado is to supply the needs of the halal poultry industry for corn-based feeds. <i>Source: Minda News</i>
