AgroEco is based in Voronezh, Russia and has 30,000 sows today. They are currently expanding to 60,000. Also under construction is a slaughter plant that will be used to kill and process all production.

Genesus is very proud to be chosen as the genetic supplier of Agro Eco, who are recognised as an excellent producer within Russia.

There are very many similarities between Russia and Canada, such as climate and scale of operations.

Russia is nearing self-sufficiency in pig production and is targeting Asia to develop export markets. Canada is a country that exports more than 50% of its production and Genesus is the major supplier of genetics to China and South East Asia.
