Allana to build 371 mln birr meat processing plant
Addis Ababa, 2 January 2014 (WIC) –Allanasons Ltd, India's largest exporter of processed food products, signed an agreement with an indigenous firm, ETG Designer and Consultant PLC, to build a meat processing plant at a cost of 371 million birr.
The agreement was signed at the Ministry of Industry on Wednesday, January 1, 2014 by Dr Eshetu Temsgen, Director General of ETG Designer and Consultant PLC, and Aman R. Kahan, representative of the group.
Dr Meberatu on the occasion said the construction of the plant would help to improve Ethiopia’s meat export, thus assisting the efforts to attain the meat export target set in the GTP.
It would also enable the pastoral community to effectively benefit from their animal resources as well as it allows leather industries to get hides and skins reliably, he said.
In addition to promoting technology transfer, the plant to be built on 75 hectares of land around Zeway, Oromia Regional State, will create jobs for several residents of the area, he said.
Allana decided to build the plant here taking into account Ethiopia’s livestock potential and its favorable climate, Aman R Kahan, representative of the group said.
The company would commence exporting meat by erecting the plant soon, he said.
