Russian meat producer, Eurodon plans to produce 70,000 tonnes of turkey meat this year, increasing its’ output 32% on a year-to-year comparison versus 47,000 tonnes in 2015.
In a statement, the company also confirmed the expansion of its halal line. Since July, the company produces 10 tonnes of halal turkey per day, compared to 4-5 tonnes previously.
The presence of religious goods in the production range is dictated by the desire to expand consumer choice, according to Eurodon’s director general, Vadim Vaneev. “We focus on the quality of our products and turkey properties, so that it is valuable for people of different ages, gastronomic preferences and national traditions,” he said.
