Avangardco suspends Vyhlehirskyi poultry feed mill in Ukraine after seizure



Avangardco, the largest producer of shell eggs and egg products in Ukraine and number one producer in Eurasia, said its Vyhlehirskyi feed mill in the Donetsk region has been occupied by armed individuals on July 18 and has since stopped production.


The plant supplies feed stock to the group's poultry farms, which are located in the Donetsk, Luhansk and Kharkiv regions.


The mill-one of six feed plants owned by the group-accounted for 11% of Avangardco's total production of feed stock in 2013.
