Environmental and Social Summary

Categorised B. E&S due diligence for Tranche 1, the construction of a new extended slaughterhouse on the site of the existing slaughterhouse and construction of new rendering plant within the existing footprint of the Company's facilities, was undertaken by independent TC-funded environmental, social and animal welfare consultants. They assessed the environmental, social and animal welfare performance of the client against the existing ESAP and PRs; and the additional E&S impacts and potential E&S risks presented by the Project such as the need for additional waste water treatment and waste management. Tranche 2 of the loan is uncommitted and undefined and additional ESDD
may be required when it is presented for review.

The findings of ESDD confirmed the Company's EHS management is generally good, they have made progress with the implementation of the agreed ESAP (under the existing project with the client 'Dniprovska Agri, ID number 48474'), they are generally in compliance with national E&S regulations, are within the limits of their environmental permits and undertook the necessary EIA/OVOS for the new facilities. There is a good level of compliance with EU BAT, though with some gaps, but as yet only partial compliance with the PRs.

Other issues that require action include improvement of the Company's OHS supervision of their construction contractors, formalising the Company's environmental and social management system, development of an animal welfare and biosecurity policy, removal of bone meal from poultry feed, strengthening of the employee grievance mechanism, conducting an asbestos survey and management plan for all facilities and a number of other E&S improvements.

These have been formulated into an ESAP to ensure compliance with both national and EU standards for environment, health and safety and EBRD's ESP 2014 and agreed with the Company prior to signing. The Project is expected to result in environmental benefits such as efficiencies in water consumption and energy, emissions reductions and rain water harvesting.

The Company will be required to continue to submit annual monitoring reports.
