In February 2013, Cherkizovo Group started renovation of the processed meat product facility at its flagship Cherkizovsky Meat Processing Plant.
The renovation project involves a multiple increase in processed meat production capacity and a significant expansion of the product range. The renovated facility will have an area of 7,000 square meters, and total investments will be more than 500 million rubles. When the renovations are completed, the new facility will have a capacity of 1,500 tonnes per month or 50 tonnes per day.
“Increasing output and expanding the range of processed meat products is a strategic decision,” says Alexander Kostikov, Head of Communications and Investor Relations of Cherkizovo Group.
“The market for chilled meat products is very promising today, so we have started the renovations in an effort to meet the steadily growing demand for high-quality domestic meat products. The new line will produce processed meats under our popular Cherkizovsky brand, which includes ground meat, sausages, rib steaks and stewing meat. Production will start by summer, and the processed meat product facility will reach full capacity by the end of this year.”
