Under the terms of the agreement, APK Mikhailovsky and Cherkizovo-Pig Breeding (both companies belonging to Cherkizovo Group) now own 99% and 1%, respectively, in Vishnevsky Selective Breeding and Genetics Centre.
Established in 2006 in the Orenburg Region, Vishnevsky Centre breeds thoroughbred Yorkshire, Duroc and Landrace pigs, as well as F1 hybrid pigs. It also engages in commercial swine production, with a pig stock of more than 250,000 head a year, and has five sites manufacturing meat products.
Cherkizovo Group has never operated in the Orenburg Region previously. In this new area, the company will be able to engage independently in pig selective breeding and genetics. This will not only strengthen its own vertical integration in pig production but will also contribute to reducing the entire industry’s dependence on imported pedigree material by meeting market demand for high quality products.
