This greatly speeds up the work of our production facilities and saves the company time" director of the meat processing department Ivan Zazuli stated in the press release.
The new slaughterhouse in Gavrilovka produces Halal poultry products, which will allow the company to export poultry to Iran, Iraq and other Islamic countries.
