The Agrokultura Group greenhouse complex is located 130 kilometers from Moscow, in the Kashira district. This is a modern complex in the Moscow region with supplementary lighting technology, a controlled microclimate, watering, and monitoring of plant growth and status. Last year, 65,000 tonnes of crops were harvested from an area of 103 hectares.
With the purchase of this complex in the Moscow region, the production area of ROST Group greenhouses has exceeded 600 hectares. This will make it possible to harvest more than 420,000 tonnes of fresh vegetables in the 2023–2024 agricultural year.
ROST is the largest employer in the agro-industrial sector. More than 10,000 people work at 20 enterprises, united by common values and guidelines: passion for business, innovation, excellence. These are professionals in their fields who are solving ambitious problems—developing the market and culture of consumption of fresh vegetables, and are achieving significant results in their work.
The enterprise will grow exclusive tomato hybrids for well-known brands such as Sladkaya Yagoda and FLAMENCO, and will also continue growing cucumbers and lettuce.
We saw significant demand for our vegetable brands last year. Exclusive hybrids from ROST differ significantly in taste from other offerings on the market. As such, we need new space to satisfy the growing demand for FLAMENCO tomatoes and the sweetest Sladkaya Yagoda and Medovye cherry tomatoes, says the holding's press service.
We are continuing to implement the strategy of maintaining maximum proximity to consumers and presence in all markets. The spread out geography enables us to pick vegetables ripe, at the very moment they acquire their rich taste, and deliver on the same day.
