Janakpur Agro Pvt Ltd will be opened in Dhanusha with an investment of more than 1.5 billion. The company is going to put the organic fertilizer plant and CNG biogas plant into operation along with the poultry farm with an investment of 1.62 billion 33 lakh rupees.

The company has taken a loan of 1 billion 1363 million rupees for the construction of the company. According to the company, by the middle of June 2022, the physical progress of the company has been 60 percent, while the financial progress has been 48 percent.

According to the economic survey for the financial year 2077/78, the production of meat in Nepal is 54.6 percent, i.e. 552 thousand metric tons. Similarly, 1.49 billion eggs are produced annually. In recent years, annual meat production in Nepal has increased by 3.53 percent, and 1.9 billion eggs were produced during the 8 months of 2022.

In order to protect poultry and become self-sufficient, the government has imposed a ban on poultry products imported from different countries. So there is no need to rely on imported poultry. However, despite the ban on imports, the company says that there are many risks in the poultry sector due to various problems including bird flu.

Janakpur Agro company construction started in September 2018. The company will produce 51 thousand 840 poultry products in two sheds and 1 lakh 800 chickens in each shed in 5 laying sheds.

In addition, the company is going to expand the annual 8,720 metric ton organic fertilizer plant to an 800 KW biogas CNG plant power generation capacity.

The company has rated 1.39 billion rupees for long-term and short-term loans.
