The Vietnamese entity proposes to work for 24 hours, with an initial production capacity of 200 tons (t) of feed each day, said Michel Ravelo Herrera, director of the Basic Business Unit (UEB) located in the municipality of San Cristóbal.

He also specified that they have imported raw materials in warehouse such as rice bran, soybeans and other by-products, among these bactericides; Meanwhile, in the province of Mayabeque they have about 200 hectares of corn already planted as a guarantee not to stop in the production of feed, to begin in the coming days.
