The growing demand for food in the UAE has led to the search for effective solutions to ensure food security. One of the main goals of the National Food Security Strategy 2051, launched in 2018, is to become a leader in the global food security index. This goal is to be achieved by ensuring that all residents have access to safe, nutritious and high quality food.

Regions facing the challenge of food security often look to large countries for potential cooperation, which ironically proves problematic as large countries also have very high food needs. When it comes to ensuring food security, it is worth noting technologically advanced and logistically well-developed countries located in particularly favorable climatic zones.

One of these countries is Lithuania, located on the eastern shore of the Baltic Sea. The country, which ranks 16th in the European Union in terms of area, is one of the largest grain exporters in the region, exporting up to 5 million tonnes of grain annually.

The leader in this field is Agrokoncernas Group, the largest agricultural enterprise in the Baltic States. The Agrokoncernas Group implements large-scale projects that fundamentally change the position of the Baltic States in the world. It is the largest seller of fertilizers and pesticides in Lithuania. The group owns more than 40 enterprises, 15 agrochemical supply centers, 23 grain silos and 14 agricultural farms.

According to Alina Adomaitytė, CEO of Agrokoncernas GDP, the latest project of Agrokoncernas Group is a sustainable deep grain processing plant. It is developed by Agrokoncernas GDP – a company that aims to become the most progressive grain processing company in the world by implementing cutting-edge technologies and sustainable zero-waste manufacturing solutions. This project is of national importance as it will sow the seeds of the green revolution in the grain sector.

“The green revolution in grain processing will start on company land. Agrokoncernas Group currently owns 40,000 hectares of arable land, 1,400 hectares of precision farms and has a certified research laboratory,” says Adomaitytė.

The raw material of the plant is wheat grain, from which products such as starch, gluten, bioethanol, biogas, biofertilizers and others will be produced. The most promising product is starch, which is actually used in the pharmaceutical, chemical and food industries. It is also one of the main contributions to food security. The priority of the Agrokoncernas Group is to create added value from grain, using the opportunities offered by renewable energies.

Adomaitytė adds: “The factory will operate on the principle of circular zero-waste production and will use green energy, including solar and wind power. One of the main objectives of the company is to deal with ecological shortages without degrading the environment.

By investing in the most modern technologies in the world, Agrokoncernas GDP aims to reduce carbon emissions and pollution through better energy and resource efficiency and to create starch production technology for the European market with less consumption water than any other existing starch production plant.

Experienced partners from the UK, Germany, Switzerland and Austria are helping build the plant. Bringing together the world’s best technologies, all the processes of the plant will be closed, in order to avoid the emission of noise, dust or causing other inconveniences to the inhabitants.

One of the biggest advantages of this plant is the particularly favorable climatic zone, where the costs of water and energy resources are among the lowest in the world. Lithuania also has a highly developed agricultural sector that can easily supply the plant with the required amount of grain.

After the first sustainable strategic project of deep grain processing, the next phase will be the construction of a bioplastics factory to fight against global pollution. The construction of such a plant is also planned in the United Arab Emirates. These mark the first steps of the Agrokoncernas Group in solving various global challenges in the food industry and food safety.
