Cherkizovo Group is Russia’s major poultry producer and the leader in branded poultry. Our flagship brands are Petelinka (including Clean Label) and Kurinoe Tsarstvo.
The poultry segment delivered an impressive performance in 2017, with the sales of finished products reaching 522,500 tonnes. The strong results came on the back of a steadily rising share of branded and value-added products (such as ready-to-cook products) in the segment's total sales. The Group intends to further increase the share of ready-to-cook products and promote cooperation with retail chains and companies in the HoReCa segment.
The Company controls all stages of the production process – feed production, incubation, growth and fattening, slaughter and processing. The feed depends on broiler age and is made of natural ingredients such as wheat, corn and sunflower oil. The birds are kept in specially equipped premises with regulated temperature and humidity levels to provide comfortable conditions for the flock.
The Company is one of the key growth drivers of the nation's poultry industry. Over the past decade, the Company has been actively purchasing, upgrading and debottlenecking poultry factories in Russia’s central regions, working to roll out the most advanced technologies for production efficiency and veterinary safety. The Group continues to ramp up poultry production through strategic acquisitions and capacity expansion.
With 8 full-cycle manufacturing facilities in operation, we are now completely self-sufficient in hatching eggs, a big step forward to delivering on the import substitution plan.
We also continue to tap into new export markets. Our farms are licenced to supply poultry to Egypt, UAE, Tanzania, Angola, Iraq and the EU.
