BC, Riga, 07.08.2020.Print version
Gallusman, a company of Ukrainian and Latvian group of investors Ovostar Union, is considering former Jekabpils arport as its next possible location for its egg farm, informs LETA.

The company plans to develop an egg production plant in Krustpils county. Earlier the company has revised opportunities to develop its business in other regions of Latvia.


The company plans to operate in several real estate properties in the territory of former Jekabpils airport. Gallusman plans to have up to six million hens and up to 1.4 million chicken in its farm, creating 200 new jobs.


The complex would also include premises for processing and storing grain, production of fodder, egg sorting plant and egg processing plant, as well as storehouse for ready-made products, and a plant for processing manure into granules.


The planned capacity is about two billion eggs a year.


Public discussions on the project will be held online from August 17 until August 21.


As reported, Ovostar Union has confirmed its plan to build a new egg production plant in Latvia. So far the company considered locations in Valka, Tukums and Ogre counties.


Environment Protection and Regional Development Minister Juris Puce (For Development) suspended the decision of Ogre county council on local territorial plan for egg farms as a probe was started on a number of violations of laws and legislative norms.


Meanwhile, Tukums local council breached the agreement with Gallusman that had been signed by the previous council.
