Since founding AVANGARDCO IPL in 2003, through our successful business strategy, advanced production technologies and cohesive teamwork, we have become a leader in the production of shell eggs and dry egg products in Ukraine and globally.
Our facilities are located across Ukraine and include nineteen laying farms, serviced by three incubators, ten rearing farms, six feed mills, three long-term storage facilities and the Imperovo Foods egg processing plant. To meet growing demand and increase production efficiency, we have completed the construction of two new, fully automated poultry complexes with a total capacity of 11.2 million laying hens and expanded the existing capacity of the Imperovo Foods processing plant for the production of dry egg products.
Shell eggs and dry egg products produced at our facilities are safe, affordable and of the highest quality. They meet the current Ukrainian and international veterinary and sanitary requirements. All these factors have enabled AVANGARDCO IPL to successfully export its products to 42 countries and continue to expand its customer base while entering new markets.
Another important key strength at AVANGARDCO IPL is a consumer-oriented approach, that is constantly applied at all the levels within the organisation.
AVANGARDCO IPL is committed to fulfilling its ambition to become the number one global egg producer and continues to explore opportunities for achieving further growth by building on its core strengths.
I would like to thank all our stakeholders for their longstanding support. We hope that 2017 will bring positive changes across Ukraine. I am confident that in this case, AVANGARDCO IPL is well positioned to ensure long-term growth based on its KPIs and will be able to achieve its strategic goals quickly and effectively.
