In April 2017, Ukrainian business media reported sensational news: “Elevator BUDInvest” company started constructing an oil extraction soybean processing plant in the village of Adampil in the Khmelnytskyi Oblast. The enterprise will produce high quality soybean oil and peanut butter for the food industry. According to the investor’s plans, this plant should become one of the most powerful enterprises not only in Ukraine, but also in Europe. At the same time, the volume of investments will be about UAH 1,5 billion, and the total number of employees will exceed 140 people.
However, this project became well-known all over Ukraine not due to its scope: Stara Synyava rayon council failed to approve the normative value of the land plot for the second stage of the plant construction at several plenary meetings in July 2017. The documents submitted by the investor did not raise any objections, however, a decision was not taken for a few months. Although this was a simple formality, the implementation of a large-scale project was suspended.
In the end, the Starosynyavska rayon council has finally voted for the necessary document. And now the construction of the second stage of the plant is already over. Vitaliy Zdebskyi, head of Starosynyavska AH, told the Decentralisation portal of the difficulties encountered in cooperation between the businessmen and hromada, as well as on the features of investor’s search.
