Cherkizovo Group, the largest vertically integrated meat and feed producer in Russia, has commenced construction of a new meat processing plant in the Kashira district of the Moscow region. When completed, this new plant will be the largest of its kind in Europe.

With total investment into the project expected to reach RUB6 billion (€88 million), this will be the largest food industry investment in the Moscow region.

The 80 tons per day production capacity of this new facility outstrips that of any other meat processing plant in Europe. It will be fitted with state-of-the-art equipment to ensure the highest quality and biosafety of the end products. Energy-efficient technologies will also be implemented as the sausage production process will be fully automated using raw materials from the Group’s other segments.

The proup currently employs a total of 6,000 people in the Moscow region.
