Investment Project for Upgrade and Expansion of OOO "Dairy plant VITA" to be launched in Kuzovatovsky District
The concept for production development was presented to Governor Sergei Morozov during the meeting regarding spring planting in the municipality.
“This plant is the largest milk processing facility in the Ulyanovsk region. I am happy to see that Vita will receive a new impetus for its development. One hundred new jobs will be created thanks to the significant amount of investments. I am sure that this is a priority project for Kuzovatovsky District now, so we will monitor it closely,”- said the head of the region Sergey Morozov.
OOO "Dairy plant VITA" was founded in 1971 in the village of Kuzovatovo. The facility makes butter, demineralized whey powder, curd and curd products, and cheese. All products are made with the use of raw materials purchased from reliable local farmers. Since 2017, Vita has been part of GK "DALIMO", which is the largest producer of milk and dairy products under the brand "Pestravka". The plant has the latest equipment that prevents contact between workers and products almost completely.
The investment project includes in-depth modernization in 2020-2021, as well as expansion of the plant's production capacity and construction of a milk drying workshop in 2020. To comply with all environmental standards, the project proponent will build waste treatment facilities for the enterprise. According to preliminary estimates, the planned investment volume for the whole project will total 2.8 billion rubles. In the near future, the company will upgrade equipment at its manufacturing facility, which will increase the output by 30%.
“Experience shows that we must attract investments to develop the agro-industrial complex. The main indicators of social and economic development of the municipality and the whole region depend on them. Investment attractiveness of the territory requires qualified human resources. We will continue working together with enterprises and educational establishments to develop labor potential and improve qualifications of employees. It is important to restore the image of laborers,” - said Mikhail Semyonkin, Deputy Prime Minister of Ulyanovsk Region – Minister of the Agro-Industrial Complex and Rural Development.According to Sergey Soluyanov, Director General of OOO "Dairy plant VITA", the enterprise focuses on development and upgrade of its production capacities. He said, “We are developing new formulations, offer our consumer more and more interesting cheese products. Earlier this year, we received two gold medals at Prodexpo Exhibition in the Best Product nomination - for the 5% curd "Pestravka" and semi-firm cheese "Emmental".”
