Eurodon establishes duck subsidiary in Russia

Eurodon, Russia’s largest turkey producer, is establishing a new subsidiary, Donstar, which will be the first company to produce duck meat on a commercial scale in Russia.

The capacity of this vertically integrated project will reach 20,000 tons of meat per year. For the hatchery, which will produce 150,000 ducklings per week, Donstar has commissioned Petersime and its distributor Hartmann.

The hatchery will feature 21 BioStreamer 12S setters and 16 BioStreamer 4H hatchers. The contract also includes Petersime HVAC equipment.

Besides a hatchery, the Donstar complex comprises more than 60 poultry barns, processing plants, a feed mill, a litter processing plant and other industrial facilities that will form a single cluster of agriculture.

“We have been working with Petersime and Hartmann since the very beginning,” said Vadim Vaneev, General Director who was recently named ‘Poultry Tsar’ by Forbes magazine. “We are highly satisfied with the good and timely project management by the Hartmann team and with the quality and reliability of the equipment from Petersime.”

Eurodon is the largest agro-industrial holding company producing and processing turkey meat in the Russian market. Established on a small scale in 2003 in the Rostov region, the company is now responsible for 30% of the Russian turkey market. The meat is sold under the brand ‘Indolina’.
