Tatarstan has launched the new production line of halal eggs. This product is currently manufactured by the Laishevo branch of the poultry production unit of the Ak Bars group under the Yaratel brand. Every day the enterprise produces 1,620,000 eggs, 20% of them being halal.
In order to launch a new production line the manufacturers had to completely reconsider the feeding of laying hens. According to halal standards, birds were no longer given fodder of animal origin. Normally the producers used to buy flour made from meat and fish refinement products for the hens. Now the hens are fed only vegetal fodder with no animal additives.
The company director said that the new products would be supplied in an eco-friendly package conforming to modern standards. The head of the company assured that his organization would be able to supply halal eggs to all Muslim population of the republic as well as other interested consumers willing to buy environmentally friendly and wholesome high-quality products.
