CP Prima Building New Feed Mill

 

Given the high global demand for shrimp and the decreased supply of shrimp from countries hit by early mortality syndrome (EMS) in 2013, Central Proteinaprima (CP Prima), one of the largest shrimp farms in the world, is anticipating a sharp rise in demand for fish and shrimp feed in 2014.

 

Based on numbers generated by the Indonesia Shrimp Association, Atanta Mahar Sembiring, President/Director of CP Prima, anticipates a 20% increase in shrimp feed sales in 2014.  “Feed for shrimp aquaculture is to rise due to growing interest and high demand in the global market,” he said.

 

Consequently, the company is constructing a $5-$7 million feed mill on the eastern end of Java, around Sepanjang, Sidoarjo, that it hopes to complete by the third quarter of 2014.  By the fourth quarter of 2014, it expects the mill to be producing 40,000-50,000 metric tons of aquatic feeds per year, bringing CP Prima’s total aquatic feed capacity in Indonesia to 493,000 metric tons a year.
