Project Description
If provided by the financial institution, the Early Warning System Team writes a short summary describing the purported development objective of the project and project components. Review the complete project documentation for a detailed description.

IFC is considering an investment in Bel Ga Myanmar to support the construction of a new parent stock (PS) breeding farm with a capacity of 96,000 PS and a new hatchery facility with a capacity of 12 million DOCs per annum in Myanmar.

The company is in the process of identifying the land required for the project in a suitable industrial zone near Yangon. The total land requirement for the breeder farm and the hatchery is expected to be 12 ha, and will be leased from the industrial estate authority or purchased outright from a private seller using a market-based willing buyer/willing seller transaction. The breeder farm and the hatchery is expected to be operational by May/2017.


Since the project in Myanmar is at a very early stage, and the location/land is not yet finalized, IFC's environmental and social (E&S) review of this investment focused on the company's existing operations in Vietnam; it is expected that the company will largely replicate those operations for the proposed development in Myanmar.IFC, therefore, reviewed (i) the project development and implementation plans submitted by the sponsors for Bel Ga Myanmar; and (ii) technical, environmental, health and safety (EHS) related information for Bel Ga Vietnam, including: regulatory permits and licenses, operational policies and procedures; organizational charts; operational details about the company's existing operations; EHS, food safety and human resource (HR) policies and procedures; EHS related monitoring records; layout drawings and technical designs for the proposed expansion project.The appraisal also included site visits to PS breeding farm in Loc Quang and the hatchery in Bao Loc city; and discussions with Bel Ga Vietnam's senior management and technical teams at their office in Bao Loc city.
