By the end of autumn 2022, KSG Agro will complete the reconstruction of the slaughterhouse serving the pig farm of the holding in the Dnepropetrovsk region and located at the Dnipro meat processing plant.

Stunning devices purchased include electric stunners, stunning tongs and other optional accessories.
