In this project, the company, opened in 1957 and focused on the production of vegetable oil, animal feed and corn flour, has 50 percent of Banco BIC's financing, within the framework of the Credit Support Program (PAC) and another half are own funds.

In an interview with Angop Monday , Induve's financial administrator, Kidy Aragão, informed that the investment amount reached this figure because the physical structure already exists, otherwise the value could be between 30 and 35 million US dollars.
