November 1, 2019

Moscow, Russia – October 30, 2019 – Cherkizovo Group (Petelinka and Cherkizovo brands), Russia’s largest meat producer, joined a working group participating in the regulatory guillotine project in animal and crop farming.

The Russian Government approved the members of the regulatory guillotine working groups whose goal is to eliminate outdated regulations, some of which date back to the USSR. Cherkizovo's CEO Sergey Mikhailov, along with 19 other members from relevant ministries and agencies as well as the agricultural sector and industry associations, was included in the group that is going to review animal and crop farming regulations.

According to the lawmakers, the work of these groups will help them navigate the guillotine reform. “Active dialogue involving more than 700 experts from different fields should help shape a regulatory framework that is clear and transparent while also being in line with new trends and developments,” said Ekaterina Salugina-Sorokovaya, Head of the Regulatory Policy Department of the Russian Government.

“I am grateful for being included in the working group dedicated to implementing the regulatory guillotine in the agricultural sector. There is much work to be done to free the industry from barriers that are no longer of any practical use to the government or businesses,” commented Sergey Mikhailov, Cherkizovo's CEO.

The first meeting of the working group for animal and crop farming is scheduled for November 11.
