New pork breeding facility in Russia

Cherkizovo Group OJSC, one of Russia's leading integrated and diversified meat producers, has announced that it has commissioned the first module at its new state-of-the-art pork breeding facility located in the Tambov region.

The Tambov pork complex will ultimately consist of two modules with a total completed capacity to breed more than 200,000 pigs per year. This is anticipated to translate into 12,500 tonnes of live weight per year in each module. 

The Group expects the first module commissioned today will be operating at full capacity by mid 2009. It is expected that the second module will be operational in the second half of the 2008 financial year, and will reach full capacity by the second half of 2009 financial year.
