“The company’s strategy is aimed at increasing exports of high value-added products that are competitive in price and in demand on global markets,” said Miratorg’s President Victor Linnik, as quoted by the company’s press service. He noted that Miratorg takes into account the peculiarities of food culture in importing countries when planning future supplies.

Miratorg supplies meat to almost 30 countries, including the Persian Gulf, Southeast Asia, Africa, the Eurasian Customs Union and the CIS.
