In September 2021, ASTARTA launched a new investment project to add a new technological line of advanced soybean processing to existing soybean processing facilities in the Poltava region. The production capacity of the line is up to 100kt of soy protein concentrate per year. The project timeline is two years and planned investment is circa USD50m.

The technology is innovative for Ukraine. The soy protein concentrate is made by aqueous alcohol extraction from non-granulated soybean meal. Soy concentrate is used as a high-quality feed component for livestock, poultry and fish.
