The soy manufacturing plant of Hyderabad-based Srinivasa Farms, the dominant player in poultry production, poultry breeding, animal feed production, agriculture, goat breeding and food retailing, has witnessed an increase of 24 per cent in capacity owing to the demand for its quality soy meal.

The plant, located at Nagpur, Maharashtra, has a state-of-the-art extraction unit with a capacity to deliver 500 tonne per day. Presently, the crushing of seeds has gone up by 24 per cent to 1,50,000 metric tonne in 2018-19.

India is the fourth-largest broiler producer and third-largest egg producer, with broiler production of 4.2 million tonne in 2018 and egg production of 75 billion. Ninety per cent of the broiler industry uses compound feed.

In coming years, poultry production and consumption in India is predicted to grow due to various factors, such as a shift in food habits, urbanisation, increasing awareness of balanced nutrition, etc.

“At Srinivasa Farms, we strive to provide quality feed to our customers, which makes the end product healthy and tasty,” said Suresh Chitturi, vice-chairman and managing director, Srinivasa Farms Pvt Ltd, and vice-chairman, International Egg Commission (IEC).

“Soybean meal has a high protein content, especially when compared to other plant protein sources. It also has an excellent amino acid profile that complements that of corn, the primary energy source in poultry diets,” he added.

“Our feed, fortified with nutrients and immunity building substances supports faster and uniform growth. Our scientists and nutritionists constantly aim to improve quality of feed and to bridge the gap between operations and science,” Chitturi said.

“Feed formulations are arrived at after carefully considering seasonal variations, birds’ needs and quality, price and availability of ingredients,” he added, stating, “We have recently installed two silos for storage of soy seeds having capacities of 10,000 and 3,000 metric tonne each.”
