The largest food company in South Korea, CJ Cheiljedang Corp., announced Tuesday that two animal feed plants were recently completed in Indonesia, raising the company’s annual capacity to 2.8 million tons, according to a report Tuesday from South Korean news wire service Yonhap.

A facility in Central Java’s Batang has an annual production capacity of 260,000 tn of chicken and fish feed, the news organization said, and another site in Kalimantan on Borneo can manufacture 180,000 tn of chicken feed each year.

The company plans to construct an additional four animal feed factories in Southeast Asia in 2017, including two in Vietnam, one in Indonesia, and a facility in the Philippines. With the addition of the two factories in Indonesia that were recently completed, CJ now owns 12 animal feed factories in total.

The company told Yonhap that the new facilities are part of plan to double its production of animal feed in the region by 2020 and become the largest vendor of animal feed in Southeast Asia.

“We will ramp up efforts to become the unrivaled leading feed maker in the Southeast Asian market,” said a company official quoted by the news organization. “CJ’s animal feed and livestock division relies on overseas operations for nearly 70% of its sales.”
