The company aims to hire 200 specialists additionaly and invest over 60 million euros in four new production lines, scheduled to be operational by 2028.

“Kormotech” started its operations in 2020, opening a 4500 sq. m. factory in the Kėdainiai FEZ.

The expansion plan of “Kormotech” envisions the launch of the first production line in the new factory in 2025, with one line added each year until all four lines are operational by 2028. The company will be searching for qualified engineers, food technologists, and other specialists to ensure the success of the project.

Including its headquarters in Lviv, the company currently employs more than 1,200 people globally. “Kormotech” is recognized as one of the top 50 employers in Ukraine and is known for its active participation in various social projects. The company promotes a humane approach to animals, supports the development of veterinary medicine in Ukraine, and provides assistance to animal shelters across the country.
