On 15 May 15, Delacon Phytogenic Feed Additives opened its newest subsidiary company in Moscow, Russia.

Delacon has worked intensively over the last 3 years to build the foundations for our Russian business,“ said Delacon CEOs Helmut and Markus Dedl. “The Russian market is very different from other markets, and we have adapted our entry strategy to be able to work there successfully“.

The market potential in Russia is huge and the future looks bright, believe the company. Delacon CEE Division Director Mirek Simerda: “Russia is a sleeping agricultural giant. This enormous country still imports a big part of its meat consumption, and the Russian government plans to be self-sufficient in meat production within a few years“.

The new office is located in the centre of Moscow. At the opening ceremony, which took place on May 15 at the premises, a number of guests from the industry joined, including representatives of distributors, feed mill and premix manufacturers as well as senior faculty members of Russian Universities.

Delacon Russia Manager Emil Marecek: “The solutions of Delacon have come at the right time to the Russian market. We experience a lot of changes, and local producers are looking for innovative technologies to improve their performance and ensure food and feed safety“.
