Acquisition of a new feed production unit

Compagnie Soussia de Nutrition Animale (Cossona), is a limited company created in 1995 and specialised in the production of animal feed. The company operates in the manufacture and marketing of simple and compound feeds for livestock. The feeds manufactured on site are mainly intended for feeding birds, cattle and sheep.

In order to modernise its old and outdated industrial unit with very low yields and to improve product quality, the company requested funding and technical assistance from the Green Value Chain programme. The support aimed to renovate, modernise and increase the capacity of its feed manufacturing unit by acquiring a new fully automated unit in replacement of the old machines with new state-of-the-art machines. The new line is equipped with various intelligent sensors, probes and sensors that allow the company to better control the output of the machines to ensure the best possible performance.

Thanks to this investment, the company is now producing up to 45,000 tons/year, an increase of more than 90% compared to the old production line, thus generating a significant gain in productivity, in addition to a clear improvement in product quality.

The implementation of this project, financed by Banque Populaire, has allowed a reduction in electrical energy of 33.37%, as well as a reduction in GHG emissions of approximately 216 teq CO2/year.
