According to the Minister of Agriculture Dmitry Patrushev, the launch of a modern dairy complex today is a big step for the development of agriculture in the Kursk region and a significant contribution to the growth of indicators of Russian livestock breeding in general. “The state pays priority attention to the development of dairy farming, annually allocating a significant amount of budget funds. In 2020 alone, more than 37 billion rubles were allocated to this area. In particular, this made it possible to obtain a record increase in milk production - 865 thousand tons and for the first time to produce more than 32 million tons. Nevertheless, the task of achieving the Food Safety Doctrine indicator for milk is still urgent. And of course, such large and modern complexes bring us closer to our goal. We hope that more and more of them will appear in our country”, - the head of the Russian Ministry of Agriculture emphasized.
The governor of the region, Roman Starovoit, noted that the largest livestock project was erected in the shortest possible time - less than a year ago there was a field here, and today more than a hundred employees work at the production site, work is in full swing. “The contribution of the workers of the GC "Agropromkomplektatsiya" to the development of agriculture is tangible throughout the country. By the end of 2020, the Kursk region is in second place among the constituent entities of the Russian Federation for the supply of meat products, and the supply of milk to the Russian market last year amounted to about 362 thousand tons. And, of course, plus another 100 thousand tons after the new facilities of the Agropromkomplektatsiya Group of Companies reach full capacity, this is a significant contribution to the development of the dairy industry in our country”.
Sergey Novikov, General Director of Agropromkomplektatsiya Group of Companies, in turn, thanked the Ministry of Agriculture of the Russian Federation for the development of programs within which it is possible to implement the strategy of continuous development of the Group of Companies, as well as the regional administration for support in the implementation of this significant investment project, which will significantly increase milk processing in the Kursk region and make the region a leader in the Central Federal District and Russia. Sergey Novikov also expressed gratitude to JSC "Rosselkhozbank", with which GC "Agropromkomplektatsiya" successfully implemented more than a dozen investment projects. And today these enterprises produce quality products, increase production volumes and ensure food security in Russia.
Boris Listov, Chairman of the Board of JSC Rosselkhozbank, congratulated the Group of Companies on the implementation of a major project, the investment of which amounted to 8 billion rubles. “Every second liter of milk in the country is the result of the implementation of investment projects financed by Rosselkhozbank. As a pivotal bank for the agro-industrial complex, we are interested in the balanced development of the dairy industry, which is very important for Russia. After all, milk and dairy products have a special place in our daily diet. The opening of the Dmitrievsky complex with the support of the Rosselkhozbank is an important step in providing the whole country with fresh and high-quality milk, ” - stressed Boris Listov.
