The Kaliningrad region’s business community experts recognised the agricultural holding company as one of the best in the Investor of the Year nomination.
The awarding ceremony of the 2017 Top Gun Results was held on Friday, December 8, at the regional cinema Zarya.
For the first time this year, any Kaliningrader could participate in the determination of candidates in the competition for the Top Gun 2017 award. More than 3,000 people made their choice online.

The honorary guest of the ceremony was governor Anton Alikhanov who presented the diploma of the winner to the co-owner of the agricultural holding company DolgovGrupp Dmitry Dolgov.
- It was a difficult year for rural workers; the Kaliningrad agricultural sector was faced quite a tough time in the form of rains, frosts and crop failure but I am sure that the next year, 2018, will be much better and more profitable, Dmitry Dolgov said. - We hope for the best and are not afraid of investing whole lot of money in the development of our business even in these difficult times. In 2017, we opened a new feed mill in Gurievsk, launched a new broiler production in the Krasnoznamensky municipality... There are still many plans and projects that will soon be implemented. We are pleased that our region’s colleagues and ordinary residents keep monitoring our development and celebrate our success’, the owner of the agricultural holding company added.
