Cargill Mexico has expanded its animal feed facility in Tehuacán, Puebla, Mexico.

With the construction of a new extrusion line for the production of fish feeds at the facility, the company has increased its production capacity by 5,000 tons. The expansion will serve the feed demand for catfish, trout and tilapia of Puebla, Oaxaca, Veracruz, Chiapas and the Yucatán Peninsula.

The new line is part of a $16 million investment plan in Mexico and Central America that looks to serve the needs of the region’s aquaculture producers.

“This new investment endorses our confidence in Puebla, a State that has promoted the social and economic development, in which we have had the privilege of operate throughout 49 years,” said Gerardo Quintero, Managing Director of Cargill’s Feed & Nutrition business for Mexico and Central America.

Cargill’s goal is to help the Mexican agribusiness sector thrive for the next 50 years, he said.
