Belgorod-based vertical integration, Rusagro, plans to build a major pig farm in the Russian far eastern province of Primorye. The farm would have a total investment of more than RUB 50 billion (US$735 million) within the coming four years, the company’s general director Maxim Basov has disclosed.

He noted that the construction of the complex is scheduled for the beginning of next year. The company is currently negotiating with several investors who can enter into the project, even though the group is independently capable of implementing it.
