Vadim Shalvovich Vaneev, CEO of the Eurodon Holding, the Mother company of Donstar, says: “Our brand represents high-quality fresh, tasty, tender and succulent duck meat. We are reviving this great forgotten Russian tradition, a classic. It is a 100% Russian product, made in our Russia for our Russians. Duck is becoming an affordable luxury product and is growing in popularity just like turkey meat. Consumers can choose from a wide variety of attractive Utolina products such as whole ducks, half ducks, legs, quarters, fillet, wings, giblets etc. They are superior to what the market had been supplying until now.”
Controllable production for high quality
The whole Donstar project involves the construction of a feed mill, a hatchery, over 60 growing sheds, a processing plant and a waste treatment facility. Control over the whole production chain ensures quality control at all stages of the process and guarantees consumers reliable top quality, a safe product grown and processed in an optimum environment.
High capacity, high automation
The ducks are processed at a high capacity plant with a current capacity of 4,000 ducks per hour (66 pm). The initial yearly capacity of this project is 26 thousand tons of duck meat. Expansion plans are being developed to expand up to 40 thousand tons and more. The modern state-of-the-art plant employs 900 workers and is unique for Russia. A duck processing plant of a similar high capacity with such level of automation is a rarity anywhere in the world.
