Plodorodie Agribusiness Holding (a member of Acron Group) plans to invest a total of RUB 210 million in 2021 to build a production facility in the Petrovsky district of Saratov region.
Plans include the construction of administrative buildings, products and materials storage facilities, an equipment repair and storage area, and a grain drying complex to handle processing, drying, and finished products storage at LLC Plodorodie-Saratov.
Plodorodie acting CEO Arkady Sverdlov is optimistic about the project’s future. ‘Plodorodie-Saratov is a growing agricultural business with great prospects. I am confident that the commissioning of the production facility will help us reach a new level of agricultural activity. Today, the company employs 140 people. The new production facility will create an additional 62 jobs, which will undoubtedly have a positive impact on the region’.
In 2008, Acron Group established Plodorodie Agribusiness Holding to implement agricultural projects, test the Group’s advanced fertiliser brands, and improve application techniques. Plodorodie comprises four agribusiness companies – Kubris (Krasnodar Krai), Zvyaginki (Orel region), Plodorodie-Lukoyanov (Nizhny Novgorod region), and Plodorodie-Saratov (Saratov region). The four companies own a total area of 44,000 hectares.
