Cherkizovo Group opens new Novonikolskaya facility

An official opening ceremony took place for Novonikolskaya in the Dankov District of Lipetsk Region, this is the first poultry production facility of the Eletsprom project, with the participation of Governor Oleg Korolev.

Construction of the Novonikolskaya facility began in August 2012 and lasted for just over two years; more than 1.3 billion roubles were invested in the project. The opening ceremony for the new facility was attended by Governor of Lipetsk Region, Oleg Korolev, Deputy Governor Nikolai Tagintsev, CEO of the Cherkizovo Group Sergei Mikhailov, Executive Director of Kurinoe Tsarstvo OJSC Sergei Sakhno, the head of Dankov District Vladimir Faleyev, and representatives of public organizations, business, government agencies, and the media.

The bird houses are equipped with the latest technologies, using modern equipment and cutting-edge developments in the poultry industry. Construction was carried out with loans from CB Gazprombank OJSC for implementing the Eletsprom project.

Governor Korolev said during the event: "In 1990, Lipetsk Region produced 29,500 tonnes of poultry meat by heroic labour. Today we achieve these amounts at only one facility. This shows that we have chosen the right investment policies for agriculture and are able to implement projects to supply poultry meat in both our region and up to six neighbouring regions."

CEO of Cherkizovo Group Sergei Mikhailov thanked the region's leaders for their strong support for the project and talked about the company's future plans for expanding poultry production.
