Cherkizovo Group to Export Poultry Products to Iraq

Cherkizovo Group, the largest vertically integrated meat and feed producer in Russia, has received permission to export poultry products to Iraq from its Vasilyevskaya production facility.  The Vasilyevskaya poultry farm is Cherkizovo Group’s largest poultry production facility. The permit was issued by the Iraqi Ministry of Agriculture in August 2017.

A key requirement for the export of poultry meat to Iraq is the observance of halal – a set of rules in the Islamic religious tradition that sets strict guidelines for the slaughter of animals. The slaughter facilities at the Vasilyevskaya poultry farm comply with these rules, according to certification from the Halal International Centre for Standardisation and Certification of the Council of Muftis of Russia. Cherkizovo Group’s halal products are produced under the brands “Latifa” and “Dajajti” and are intended both for export as well as for meeting the domestic demand for these products.

The Vasilievskaya poultry farm is located in Bessonovsky district of Penza region. The enterprise was founded in 1978, and in 1998 it joined Cherkizovo Group. Today, it is one of the highest capacity poultry producing facilities in Russia.

Obtaining the right to export products to Iraq is a significant step in the development of the Group’s export potential. Exports are increasingly important for the Cherkizovo Group in current market conditions. Iraq is one of the largest markets in the Middle East. The requirements for imported poultry meat are very strict. Cherkizovo Group products meet the most stringent international requirements for biosafety. The group has already received permits to export to Egypt, the UAE, Tanzania and the EU.
