A significant increase in the production of poultry meat became possible due to the launch of “Ural” Poultry Complex, the Ministry of Agriculture of Bashkiria commented. It stopped working in October 2017 due to a difficult financial situation and in the absence of agreements between the owners. In 2019, the right to production assets lease was transferred to the Moscow LLC “Ural” Poultry Complex. In November 2019, the first batch of hatching eggs was delivered to the facility. In 2020, the company reached full capacity: the number of turkeys reached 850 thousand heads, and more than 25 thousand tons of meat were produced at the enterprise during the year.
