Cherkizovo's New Poultry Farm Opens

15 March 2011

RUSSIA - Meat producer, OJSC Cherkizovo Group, has opened a poultry breeding facility at its Penza cluster.

The Komarovka facility, which was built as part of Cherkizovo's ongoing poultry capacity increase project in Penza, consists of 34 bird houses, with a combined capacity of almost 1.1 million broilers.

The bird houses will be populated from the group's own hatcheries, and equipped with state-of-the-art technologies that reflect the latest innovations and best practices in poultry keeping.

Building work on the facility began in 2010, and investment totalled approximately US$18 million, with 30 per cent funded by internal investment and the remaining 70 per cent provided by Sberbank.
