Eco-Culture company is planning to develop such area of the agricultural industry as deep grain-processing. It is a main source of starch, glucose, amino and organic acids. This production is known to be highly profitable, but it requires major investment and preparation of a detailed business plan.
The estimated return on investment is 6-8 years. There are two options for the production development. In the first case, it will be processing of wheat to produce gluten, glucose and other products based on it – sorbitol and additives. The second scenario implies processing of corn and production of maltodextrin, gluten and cornstarch. The profitability of wheat processing will be 30-40%, corn processing – 10-12%.
Meanwhile, the company will continue to develop the core area of its business – to build and expand greenhouse complexes, produce tomatoes and other vegetables, forge logistics and open new distribution centers in Stavropol, Moscow, St. Petersburg, Chelyabinsk, Novosibirsk, and Lipetsk. In addition to that, the holding is going to devote its attention to the gardening industry – construction of the intensive apple orchard has already been started in the area of Mineralnye Vody.
