Hungarian pasta maker Gyermelyi inaugurated a HUF 3 billion grain silo investment at its base in Gyermely (about 31 km northwest of Budapest) on Thursday, according to a report by state news wire MTI.
Gyermelyi was awarded HUF 1.5 bln in state support for the 40,000-tonne capacity silos, chairman Béla Tóth said.
Agriculture Minister István Nagy said Gyermelyi's vertically integrated business model was "one of a kind", adding that sectors in which integration levels were under 50% faced big challenges because of a lack of predictability and uncertainty.
Gyermelyi can store two-thirds of its feedstock in the silos.
The company has plowed HUF 22 bln into its business over the past five years, raising its headcount over 500.
Gyermelyi had a net sales revenue of HUF 46.6 bln last year, public records show.
