This means creation of about 2500 jobs, mainly for young people and the ones of middle age who do not have a full-time job now or have to leave the region to support their families.

The second stage will involve a foreign investor who will carry out construction of another grain processing factory at the sites of OOO "Kuzovatovsky Compound Feed Plant"”, - reported Mikhail Semyonkin, the Minister of Agriculture, Forestry and Natural Resources of the Ulyanovsk region.
The agreement with OOO "Plaststroy73" provides creation of an agroholding for production and processing of agricultural goods in the territory of the Ulyanovsk region. Under the project, facilities of MAPO Group will be put into operation and more than 800 jobs will be created.

Domestic bird husbandry is a part of the Ulyanovsk region's agro-industrial complex that requires particular attention and significant investment. We are going to develop this branch and to improve operational performance through joint efforts”, - explained Boris Yuspa, the Chairman of the Board of OOO "Plaststroy73.
