“Volganin”- 100% natural product

Main principles of success

The history of OJSC “Volganin”, one of the leaders in Russian poultry farming, dates back to 1978 when the first stage of the poultry factory under construction was put into operation on the grounds of the Volga state farm near the village of Yermakovo, Rybinsk district. The largest agro-industrial complex was equipped with the most advanced Hungarian equipment at that time, with an estimated capacity of 130 million eggs per year and an average annual population of 520,000 laying hens. Time flies, and next year the company will have its 40th anniversary. Through all these years one thing has been remaining the same - consumers are the main value of the company. All company's strengths, experience and capabilities are every day directed to the creation of a useful, environmentally friendly and affordable product for healthy human nutrition. Company understands very clearly that the development of the Society is impossible without a harmonious combination of economic, environmental and social goals. That is why it contribute to the development of modern Russia, realizing the mission in relation to our Customers, Clients, Employees, Shareholders. Company is responsible to the society and the people for whom we work. Therefore, it invariably sets a high standard for itself, organizing the management and all the technological processes of production at the highest European level in accordance with world standards.

OJSC “Volganin” company is actively developing in several directions – it is the leader of the Russian Federation in terms of egg production for consumers with overall production output of 1,5 billion eggs per year. It also takes the leading position of the supplier in the deep egg processing market, working with both HoReCa segments and with the largest food producers. It actively considers export issues and works with its European partners.


High-technology processing of eggs

One of the priorities of OJSC “Volganin” is the production of natural egg products manufactured with observance of all parameters of the technological process and biosafety. Egg products are a processed egg in a dry or liquid form, passed several stages of processing and ready for use in the confectionery, fat, meat industry and public catering.


The production is equipped with facilities from leading foreign companies (France, Holland, Belgium, USA, Italy, Germany) and according to international experts is one of the best in Europe and Russia. Thanks to high-tech equipment, the workshop produces egg products with quality characteristics higher than those specified in the GOST. All the equipment of the workshop works in an automatic mode, the human factor here is minimized. All technological processes are monitored by control programs installed on several computers, each of which, in turn, is responsible for its own workshop section. All equipment has several protective systems from various unforeseen situations. The equipment is designed to process a whole egg, as well as separated products - yolk and protein. All units and components are designed for efficient and hygienic processing of the egg product. Flows of liquid products after breaking and separation are processed, filtered, cooled, pasteurized, and prepared for sale in a dry or liquid form. The production is based on a centering machine with a capacity of 43 thousand eggs per hour, from the Dutch company Conradts. The heart of the plant is the pasteurizer of the French company Aktini with a capacity of 3000 kg per hour for liquid melange. Drying installation from the American company FES with a capacity of 750 liters / hour in evaporated moisture, Dutch thermal chambers for dry pasteurization of the protein forming additional properties: whipping or gel strength. First of all, only company’s raw materials are used in production - eggs that are smuggled by chickens at a poultry farm, where they carefully monitor the diet of the bird and sanitary standards. Therefore, egg products – are absolutely natural, without impurities or preservatives. Company’s egg products are in demand, already outstripping supply. For food industry enterprises, the benefits from the economic and safety point of view, which are brought about by the use of dry and liquid egg products, are becoming increasingly evident. Therefore, domestic confectionery companies willingly switch to the protein produced by OJSC "Volganin", noting but a high quality and naturalness. Long-term contracts have also been concluded for the supply of yolks with the leading producers of sauces and mayonnaise in the territory of the Russian Federation and in the countries of the Customs Union. The first developments appeared in the framework of exporting products to the European Union and company is glad to see positive responses from its potential European colleagues.
