Feed Mills and animal nutrition
Feed production is carried out by putting into practice, within the manufacturing processes, the knowledge and expertise of our specialists and the latest technologies we have.
The feed produced in the two Feed Mills – Vinga Feed Mill and Pădureni Feed Mill – are of premium quality and based on recipes that provide animal nutritional intake, balanced optimally by age and functional needs.
Following investments in production capacities, as of 2014 we’ve entered the market of feed producers in Romania, by producing and marketing best-quality feed to our customers. Based on the grains purchased from local farmers, we produce best-quality feed, certified under the Food Safety Management System ISO 22000. The objective of the Feed Production Division is progressively increasing feed volume sold and responding as accurately as possible to the new recipes of our customers.
To ensure the feed of our animals, Smithfield Romania invested in building and updating two Feed Mills in Timiș and Arad Counties.
Vinga Feed Mill (Greenfield investment):
· Total storage capacity – 60,000 tons of grains
Pădureni Feed Mill (investment in updating of the existing plant):
· Total storage capacity – 65,000 tons of grains
The Feed Mills facilitate the reception and drying of grains produced by local farmers and the storage of dry grains and produces swine feed based on own recipes, developed by our specialists in animal nutrition.
