Last generation manufacturing line launched at Shakhtyorsk poultry farm

Today, on December 2, Alexander Zakharchenko visited the SE Shakhtyorsk Poultry Farm. The Head of State was shown a new line of equipment in the main cutting shop of the enterprise.

The modern complex includes all stages of meat production: from slaughter of poultry to cutting and packaging of finished products. Almost all processes are automated. The re-equipment of the enterprise will allow increasing the productivity of the factory several times – up to two thousand tons of product per month.

Alexander Zakharchenko got acquainted with the technological chain of the enterprise, talked with the staff of the factory, and tasted sausage products in the poultry factory's shop.

"The factory makes an impression. There is absolutely new line installed, there was no such modern equipment in the Republic before. Productivity of the complex is up to 6 thousand bird carcasses per hour. The increase in production will reduce dependence on the imported meat. For now our enterprises do not cover the needs, but by May 2018 this problem will have been solved definitively. The plans are to reach six thousand tons of chicken meat per month. Today, many food industry enterprises are being rebuilt, which were destroyed as a result of military actions," Alexander Zakharchenko said.

The Head of State also noted that after providing the domestic market, the possibilities of meat exports would be considered.

The state enterprise "Shakhtyorsk Poultry Farm", in addition to poultry meat supply, sells eggs, sausages and canned food wholesale and retail in 12 brand shops. In the near future, the expansion of the trading network is planned. As the workers of the factory assure, all products are natural, without additives harmful to health. High-tech means, proper nutrition and strict observance of vaccination rules for birds are used. The enterprise employs almost a thousand people.
