Russian meat giant upgrades its feed mill
Lev Tolstoy Feed Mill, part of the Cherkizovo group – an integrated pig and poultry processing company, has opened a new grain receiving centre in the Tolstoy District, Lipetsk Region of Russia, which is expected to more than double the mills capacity.
The feed mill specialises in producing all-natural pig fodder, and is one of the largest facilities in this sector of the Lipetsk Region. Its production rate is 30 tonnes per hour, and its overall grain storage capacity exceeds 95,000 tonnes.
Commissioning of the new receiving centre will speed up grain receiving considerably from 65 tonnes per hour to 150 tonnes per hour. Plus it will increase the mill’s turnover.
Nikolai Tagintsev, Deputy Governor of Lipetsk Region, Vladimir Osetrov, acting head of Lev Tolstoy District, and Andrey Kovalev, head of OJSC Lipetskmyasoprom were present at the official opening.
“The presence of a large investor like the Cherkizovo Group in the region contributes to the greater prosperity of both the region and each of its residents,” Deputy Governor of Lipetsk Region Nikolai Tagintsev said.
“Local residents do not have to look for work outside the region and have the opportunity to work close to home, earn a decent salary, and have a stable and comfortable life.”
“Lev Tolstoy Feed Mill is an important component of the company’s business,” Andrey Kovalev added.
