Despite uneasy relationship between the Chetvertynivka village community and the MHP Group enterprises in the past, the information transparency, honesty and accessibility policy contributed to the ability of Vinnytska Poultry Farm to establish the dialogue and the partnership relations with the population, activists and public organisations. The unswerving implementation of the undertaken obligations and open discussion of all the aspects of future expansion allowed the MHP Group enterprise to prove itself as a reliable partner and socially responsible investor. That is why the community supported the project of Vinnytska Poultry Farm to construct the rearing cites.
