Russian company Miratorg and Meyn-Ishida have agreed to the delivery of a complete 12,000 birds per hour Greenfield plant in the Bryansk region, Russia. This project is one of Russia’s largest dedicated poultry processing investments in the past years. The state-of-the-art facility will incorporate the latest proven technologies for fixed weight pack handling. The new plant is part of the poultry project in which a complete vertical integration is planned; from grain harvesting for feed production purposes up to the ready products, in consumer packaging or packaged for further processing.
Miratorg Agribusiness Holding, founded in 1995, is a leading investor in the Russian agribusiness industry, the largest pork and formula-feed producer and is one of the largest meat producers and suppliers in the Russian market. The Holding is an active participant of the national project, ‘Agribusiness Development’, and the state programme for agricultural development and regulation of markets for agricultural commodities, raw materials and foodstuffs for 2008 to 2012. Its strategic goal is to provide uninterrupted supplies of high-quality foodstuffs to Russian people.
Viktor Linnik, president of Miratorg Agribusiness Holding, said: "Meyn-Ishida has an outstanding name and reputation in the poultry processing industry. But what ultimately convinced us to opt for Meyn-Ishida was the fact that they have an excellent local service organisation in Moscow, with local availability of spare parts. Our project and equipment design are carried out in accordance with best European practices and top suppliers in the industry and we are certain that Meyn-Ishida will help us achieve the highest standards in processing and reach our production goals."
At Meyn-Ishida we are of course very proud to have been awarded this project. When completed in 2013, the Bryansk facility will be one of the leading state-of-the-art poultry processing plants in Russia.
