The main raw materials of feed mills are Maize, Rice Bran, Meat Bone Meal, Rapeseed, Soya bean Meal, Fish Meal, Fish Oil, Protein Concentrate, DL Mathanine, Salt, Premix, Growth Propoter, Enzyme, Mastered oil, Mastered Oil Cake, Atta etc. Some of the raw materials are mostly imported from India and rest of the raw materials is available in local sources.

Roughly every year 160,000 MT of corn is needed for the current production facility. Out of the total, around 60% is imported and the rest is sourced locally. Of the imported corns, almost 100% is imported from India. Large feed manufacturers have their nominated corn supplier in India and Bangladesh who supplies corn on season basis. Imported Corn is routed to the Bangladesh Hill Station by train and from Beanpole to feed mill’s production facility – truck transportation is used. Sourcing of corns basically depends on the seasonality. In India peak season for corn production is from October-December and May to July. In this time frame, feed manufacturers can import corn from India. The critical time is August-September when feed millers have to bear higher price to procure corn.

Second most important raw-material is the soya bean. Yearly around 82,000 MT soybean is consumed for producing feed, of which 60% is imported from India and the remaining is procured locally. Moreover, for producing feed - millers import a variety of other raw materials which include premix (a mixture of vitamins and other additives to the feed) from Thailand, Meat and Bone Meal, oil, vitamins and other additives. Overall, feed millers store 3/4 months’ stock in hand at all times. Produced feed is supplied to the DOC production unit and rest is supplied to different poultry factories of Bangladesh through nominated distributors. The pricing is mainly fixed by auction.
