The Project focuses on product sales throughout Kazakhstan. In 2025, production will reach 7.3 million tonnes of hydroponic green feed (“HGF”) at full capacity.


The investment Project envisages the farming of hydroponic green feed in industrial quantities in the Akmola Oblast village of Novomarkova. The 20 tonne/day Project will be implemented on a 0.8809 ha site. 

Current Project status:

  • Design and estimate documentation has been drafted;
  • The Company has a site connected to the required infrastructure at its disposal;
  • Foundations are being created to build an HGF plant; talks are being held with equipment suppliers.

What is the attractiveness of the project?

  • Eco-friendliness and high productivity. The hydroponic system enables the effective use of water and energy resources. Plants receive only the quantity of humidity and nutrients thy need, which helps reduce water and energy consumption compared to traditional feed cultivation methods. In addition, the modern hydroponic equipment used means plant cultivation processes can be automated and controlled. Automation simplifies management and increases the accuracy of any impact on plants, which aids optimum growth and productivity.
  • Experience. The Initiator owns a cattle breeding complex and specialises in cattle breeding, cereal and legume cultivation, and feed production. It has 5,000 heads of cattle at its disposal, feed yards for 5,000 heads, and a meat processing plant with its own laboratory (60 heads per day).
