Project Background

The project idea was mooted by the Grain Marketing Board (GMB) and developed on the basis of the need to resuscitate the livestock industry which was shrinking dramatically over some years. Revenues generated from this project will be to cross subsidize the Strategic Grain Reserve.

The project building started in October 2005. During the period from mid 2008 to end of 2010 there was no meaningful progress due to hyper inflationary environment and subsequent lack of funding of the project. ┬ĚThe estimated cost of the project is around 30 million United States Dollars. Project commissioning is expected beginning August 2013.
