Pailin factory planned

PBCK Development will spend US$2 million to build an animal-food factory in Pailin province starting in August. Company President Chea Kea said the project would be built on 20 hectares of what he described as a resource-rich area, would take about five months and 40 workers to finish. Local produce such as potatoes, corn and bran would be used to make the feed, while other materials and technical equipment would be imported from Thailand. The company is also set to spend $4 million to $6 million to open a separate farm on which about 30,000 pigs would be raised, as well as expand a stock factory for dry farm products.
