Israeli Company Wins Tender to Build Milk Parlors for Belarus

Thursday, September 20th, 2012

An Israeli company has won a 12 million-euro tender with the Belarusian government to build 135 advanced cow milking parlors across the country.

The Israeli dairy herd management firm AfiMilk will help Belarus bring its dairy system up to European standards following Russia’s decision to stop purchasing Belarusian dairy products due to violations of its packaging laws.  The decision was a major blow to the Belarusian dairy industry, which previously exported 95% of its dairy to Russia.

The systems will include all the necessary hardware, as well as computer software to mange the cattle.

AfiMilk is jointly owned by SAE from Kibbutz Afikim in the northern Jordan Valley, and Israeli private equity investment group Fortissimo Capital.  AfiMilk technologies are in use in 50 countries across the world.

The company won a gargantuan tender in China a month ago to build milking parlors for 50,000 cows at a price of $500 million.
