KSG Agro is one of the leading agricultural holdings in Ukraine, a European innovation group of companies working on the principle of vertical integration. Shares of the holding are included in the list of the Warsaw Stock Exchange. KSG Agro is part of the European Business Association (EBA). The main activity of the company is the cultivation of land and the production of crops, as well as the production of pork. Since September 2014, KSG Agro has been implementing a new development strategy, according to which the company develops the most promising projects, primarily pig farming, as well as crop production.
"In recent years, we have been living under the conditions, essentially, of a state of emergency associated with the ASF epidemic. As a result, the pork population in our country is systematically declining. The products of those producers who, like us, are investing in technologies for pig protection from ASF, are breeding products with high-quality genetics, are in high demand. And the quarantine crisis practically does not affect this, "comments Sergey Kasyanov, Chairman of the Board of Directors of KSG Agro," And the reason is that pig breeding products are among people’s priorities. You can do without expensive clothes, sea travel, but you need to eat. So even during the quarantine period, we see consistently high demand for our products. "
