The company carries out construction by one of its divisions - "Vimal-Spetsbud". The new plant will be equipped with the company Larsen’s machines: this is reported by the magazine "Offer" with reference to the director of the firm Sergei Samonenko.

The company will produce starch that meets European standards, and will be certified by the world's leading advanced quality management systems and product safety. The plant will be able to produce up to 600 t starch per day and the number of workers will exceed 50 people.

In order to encourage potatoes and to create a raw material base, farmers receive a guarantee of product sales at the beginning of the season, avoiding the cost of washing, calibrating, packing and getting rid of problems with how to grow potatoes tasty and beautiful in appearance.

After the start of the starch plant owners plan to expand the range of production at the expense of protein, organic fertilizers and other potato processing products. The launch of these products is scheduled for 2018-2020.
