Cherkizovo Group invests RUB 90 million in R&D Innovation Kitchen

Cherkizovo Group, Russia’s largest meat producer, prioritizes innovation in food manufacturing, with a strong focus on R&D. To ensure a timely and effective response to evolving consumer and partner needs, we opened R&D Innovation Kitchen, a new versatile workspace in Moscow.

Launched in June 2024 at the Cherkizovsky Meat Processing Plant, Cherkizovo’s flagship facility in Moscow, R&D Innovation Kitchen is a high-tech space, spanning almost 500 sq. m and featuring a kitchen equipped with professional-grade equipment, a conference hall, a room for open tastings, presentations and workshops, meeting rooms, and a sensory lab with a certified taste panel.

When designing this space, Cherkizovo R&D experts relied on the best practices of the world’s leading FMCG players. A team of architects and designers specializing in commercial kitchen design helped Cherkizovo bring R&D Innovation Kitchen to life within a 18-month timeframe. In total, the Company invested RUB 90 million in the project.

“For us, R&D Innovation Kitchen is first and foremost a space where we can brainstorm creative ideas with partners, develop new products, and provide rapid and expert feedback on these innovations. I am confident that this project will drive collaboration in inventing product concepts and move us forward in addressing market and consumer needs,” said Armen Pogosyan, Head of R&D at Cherkizovo Group.

At R&D Innovation Kitchen, equipment (ovens, combi steamers, grills, food processors, mixers, cutters, sous vide machines, etc.) is configured to precisely recreate thermal processing of food at catering facilities and R&D labs of Cherkizovo’s foodservice customers.

There is also a video system in place to record and broadcast presentations and workshops, facilitating collaboration with the Company’s experts and partners regardless of their location, as well as a dedicated studio for product photography and videography.
