We purposefully focused on modernisation in order to be able to offer a natural and high-quality product to our consumers from field to table,” – says Darius Gudačiauskas, Managing Director of KG Group's Poultry Business.

Their total area is approximately 35 thousand square metres. Four poultry houses were renovated in March, and there are six more poultry houses where renovation has already started.
