We are pleased to announce the opening of Serdobsk dairy farm. This is one of the largest farms on the European continent with 7,200 cows; 17,000 total herd and a milk production potential of 300 mt/day, i.e. 100 million liters per year. The farm is not only focused on the productivity, but it’s based on the most modern concepts (UN Sustainable development goals – UNSDG) of the environmentally sustainable production with high standards on animal health and welfare as well as social responsibility. We are an industry leader in the milk production with a low carbon footprint of about 1.48 kg of CO2e per liter, which is ahead of global averages and with a strategy to further improve on this.”

More than 30 billion rubles were invested in the agriculture of the Penza region. But it's not only about the money, it's also about people: nearly 500 people have found jobs at this enterprise, this is very important. Additionally, there is also return of duties - 40 million rubles arrive to the budget of the Serdobsk area. If we talk about all levels of the budget, this figure is 540 million rubles. This is a serious enterprise with solid turnover and high tax responsibility."
