In total the plant produces 13 recipes. On-premises industrial laboratories are equipped with the most advanced facilities, which enable high accuracy chemical, technical and bacteriological tests. The following physical and technical parameters are determined in the course of incoming materials control: moisture, colour and smell. The next step is chemical tests on the content of protein, fat, fiber, calcium, phosphorus, ash and chlorine. For determination of vitamin and amino acid composition there is a high-liquid chromatograph in use. The level of microelement content in the raw material and mixed feed is analyzed as well.
Pig farms in Tambov region. Their total designed capacity is 207 thousand tons of live weight pork per year. Special attention at the farms is given to observance of biosafety requirements. All the production facilities are operated in the closed-type mode and are equipped with the disinfecting barriers for trucks and cars and sanitary inspection rooms for the staff. In order to enter the operating area, it is obligatory for the staff to take a shower and put on a special uniform. The traffic of vehicles is also arranged with observance of bio-safety requirements. Depending on the route, a vehicle can be washed in the washing chamber, equipped with drying facilities, several times a day. The system of manure removal and waste disposal is used at the farms.
Slaughter and Meat Processing Plant is located in Borshchevka village, Tambov region; it was inaugurated in 2015. The plant consists of the following production areas: slaughter, deboning and packing areas, case ready, and a separate rendering plant, including all stages of processing and manufacture of final products. The designed capacity of the slaughter facility amounts to 1.95 million pigs per year (450 pigs per hour for slaughter and 350 pigs per hour for deboning). There are envisaged potentials for slaughter capacity increase up to 500 pigs per hour. The modern method of pig slaughtering guarantees absence of stress for animals. The highest level of hygiene, work process safety and ergonomics are also integral parts of production process, along with a high speed of operational performance and economic efficiency.
Slaughter area: 450 pigs per hour The equipment of the slaughter area is produced in Europe using advanced technologies. All the equipment used for slaughtering and further deboning of carcasses is certified in accordance with the European and Russian hygiene standards and fire safety rules. Slaughter are products: half-carcasses, byproducts, raw intestines and endocrine material.
Case ready area: 50 tons per day. The automated lines allow to minimize manual work of deboning products slight freezing, cutting, crushing packing and labelling.
Case ready area products: chilled case ready products of 7 product ranges:
- large cuts;
- portioned meat;
- small cuts;
- minced meat;
- kupati (fried sausages);
- shashlik (barbecue);
- marinated meat products.
Deboning area: 350 pigs per hour; 11 differentiated deboning lines allow to increase labor efficiency and deboning quality for:
- fore ends (3)
- leg cuts (4)
- striploins (3)
- trimming (1)
Deboning area products: chilled and frozen packed large cuts.
The rendering plant is designed for rendering inedible waste from Tambov Bacon slaughter plant and pig farming sites. The technology of rendering is based on a comprehensive solution of high-efficient, advanced and energy saving equipment lines. The plant territory and production facility rooms are divided into two veterinary and sanitary zones, which are securely isolated from each other using hygiene sluices and a disinfection post. Initial raw materials (line-wise):
- meat and bones line- 112 000 kg/ day
- dead animals, hair, bones line – 26 000 kg/ day
- blood processing line – 37 000 kg/ day
Final products yield:
- meat and bone meal production – 26 t/ day
- fat production - 22 t/ day
- blood meal production – 6,5 t/ day
Food products safety management system is implemented at the plant, which allows to reduce risks at all production stages. The principle of compliance with the technical regulation “On Meat Safety” is observed. Products are packed 30 – 60 minutes after deboning. The products are certified according to the international standards and sold in many Russian regions. The highest hygiene level, safety and ergonomics of the work process, compliance with European quality standards enables production of meat up to every standard. Strong temperature control at all stages of the production cycle and products delivery, and the use of innovative “skin” packing extend products’ shelf life significantly and ensure visibility of the final product.
Belgorod Branch of Tambov Bacon LLC
Belgorod Branch of Tambov Bacon LLC started its operation in 2005, its structure includes:
- 2 feed mills with the capacity of 40 tons per hour and 12 tons per hour
- 5 commercial pig farms for 4 800 sows each and 1 commercial pig farm for 5 000 sows
- 3 monoblock pig farms for 3 500 sows each (PIC genetics is used as breeding material)
- 1 nucleus farm for 2 400 sows (PIC genetics is used as breeding material)
- 2 boar stud
- 1 quarantine
- Slaughter and meat processing plant
Feed production is represented by 2 plants:
- Feed mill in Shebekino with two pelleting lines of 40 ton per hour total capacity
- Feed mill in Suhosolotino (Ivnya district) with one pelleting line with 12 ton per hour capacity.
Both feed mills are modern enterprises with automated feed production lines. The plants produce feed for all groups of animals and fully meet the needs of pig raising sites in feed.
On-premises industrial laboratories are equipped with the most advanced facilities, which enable high accuracy chemical, technical and bacteriological tests. The modern analytical base allows to carry out incoming control of raw materials in terms of physical, technical, chemical and safety indicators. A complete analysis of raw materials for all nutritional indicators (protein, fat, fiber, ash) is carried out. Feed additives are tested for vitamins, amino acids and micronutrients. To carry out these tests, the laboratory uses such analytical equipment as a high-performance liquid chromatograph, an atomic absorption spectrometer, and a capillary electrophoresis system. In order to avoid the receipt of counterfeits, the laboratory specialists have successfully mastered and apply the microscopy method. Every batch of the feed produced is quality controlled.
The laboratory has been certified by the Federal State Budgetary Institution "State Regional Center for Standardization, Metrology and Testing in Belgorod Region", which is confirmed by the received certificate on the state of measurements.

- 1 nucleus farm for 3,000 purebred sows
- 1 semen production facility
- 1 feed mill with the capacity of 300 thousand tons per year and grain elevator for 120 thousand tons
- slaughter and meat processing plant with the capacity of 680 thousand pigs per year
- 1 byproducts and waste rendering plant
The total investments volume of the project amounts to 33 billion rubles Pig farms will be constructed using best practices and dividing production processes into reproduction, nursery, finisher cycles, as well as production of replacement gilts for replacement of the main breeding herd. Rusagro Group has already purchased more than 86 thousand hectares of land in the Far East to supply the feed production with its own corn and soya.
The first commercial farms were launched in 2020 and the full project production capacity is planned to be achieved by the mid of 2023.
The total capacity will be 60 thousand tons of pork per year. The total volume of pork produced will be processed at the Company’s own meat processing plant. Rusagro-Primorye LLC plans to sell around 20 thousand tons of half carcasses, 33 thousand tons of cuts and 8 thousand tons of byproducts per year. The sales will be aimed at the domestic market of the Far East, where local deficit of pork production is estimated at 70%.
The feed mill project is of a strategic importance for the future growth of the Agricultural Business. Provided export markets are opened, the project envisages the start-up of two more construction stages and the capacity increase up to 1 300 thousand tons, which will enable Rusagro to be one of the largest Russian feed and pork exporting companies to Asia, including China, Japan and South Korea.
