Cherkizovo plans to build seven feedlots in Voronezh Oblast, with a total capacity of more than 35.000 tonnes of marketable pork per year in order to expand pork production. Implementation of the project will enable Cherkizovo to triple pork output at regional facilities to more than 50.000 tonnes live weight per year.
