Cargill has established a technology and application center in Turkey with an investment of $2 million to help dairy and poultry customers in Turkey and Africa test and evaluate feed technologies to advance their businesses. h_74_7 Operating in global food, agriculture, finance, industrial products and services area, Cargill has announced to establish a new technology and application center in Izmir. According to the announcement of Cargill, the new center is intended to help dairy and poultry customers in Turkey and Africa test and evaluate feed technologies to advance their businesses. The new center will further strengthen Cargill’s presence in the region following a 2015 deal in which Cargill acquired a majority stake in Ekol Gida, a leading company operating in premix and feed additives markets in Turkey. Scott Ainslie, global strategic marketing and technology director for Cargill’s animal nutrition business said that this new center would enable Cargill Animal Nutrition R&D and applications teams to evaluate and test Cargill global technology under local conditions, such as heat stress. Ainslie also added “The new center allow us to more quickly deliver new products and services in the region, marketed under the Provimi brand, that meet the specific requirements of our customers for their locations.” The new Izmir center was created through a partnership with an existing commercial dairy farm owned by the Egesay Animal Agriculture Food Industry and Trade Company, Ltd. The $2 million project will first concentrate on customized solutions relating to ruminants. A poultry center is scheduled to be constructed and operational by the end of 2017.
