MALAYSIA - RT-Biofarm has announced plans to raise output to six million chickens per year by 2015, following the signing of a new livestock transportation contract.

RT-Biofarm Sdn Bhd, a subsidiary of the Pahang State Development Corporation, expects its annual poultry production to increase to six million chickens by 2015, according to Bernama.

The company's director, Datuk Lias Mohd Noor, said its second farm, which would commence operations by year-end, would be able to produce 200,000 birds per cycle.

Mr Lias was speaking to reporters after signing an agreement with Kontena Nasional Bhd witnessed by Pahang Menteri Besar Datuk Seri Adnan Yaakob.

The agreement allows for Kontena Nasional to transport livestock for RT-Biofarm, which conducts contract poultry farming with Ayamas.

Mr Lias said: "A reliable and efficient transportation system is crucial when dealing with livestock as it will ultimately affect company margins.

"With Kontena Nasional's vast experience in logistics they are the right partner for us."

Bernama reports that he added the company would not terminate the services of the present transport company which delivers livestock to Ayamas plants in Port Klang.

Mr Lias also said Kontena Nasional was accredited with the halal status and the insurance coverage it offered was an added benefit to the company.
