OREANDA-NEWS. Products of Cherkizovo Group’s Petelinka Brand Won 2 Gold Medals at Prodexpo 2015 International Exhibition.

Petelinka chicken products won top awards in two categories:

  • “Innovation in a product” (chicken patties with broccoli from the Healthy Eating line)
  • “Innovation in consumer convenience” (Italian style chicken drumsticks for preparation in a microwave).

Both products are new on the market and are part of the traditional Petelinka line created from new recipes. The chicken patties with broccoli from the Healthy Eating line are prepared specially for people who prefer a healthy lifestyle. The product contains no E-components, and the chilled minced meat is enriched with fibre to improve digestion and is low in salt.

The Italian style chicken drumsticks are vacuum packed in a specially designed thermoformed pan that can withstand a high heat load. The product should be cooked in a microwave oven for 8 minutes at 800 W until done. The main advantage of the packaging is consumer convenience. There’s no need to touch it; you just cook it right in the pan after removing the label. It’s a fast and easy meal.

Cherkizovo Group has always cared about consumers’ health and offers delicious and nutritious products. In early January, the company announced the market launch of a unique line of products that can be prepared in a slow cooker or steamer. Gourmets and food lovers can choose from a wide range of meals prepared from chilled poultry meat, including chicken rissoles, chicken patties with cheese and spinach, chicken croquettes with tomatoes or cheese, chicken patties with broccoli, fillets with vegetables, and chicken meatballs with tomatoes and cheese.

The secret of Petelinka’s gold medals is continuous quality control at all production stages, fresh natural products, and a team of professional poultry breeders. The products are produced ecologically near Moscow with minimum time required for delivery “from farm to fork”, so they are always fresh and tasty.
