MOSCOW, January 25. /TASS/. McDonald's plans to fully cross to locally-made products for its restaurants in Russia, president of McDonald's Russia Khamzat Khasbulatov said on Monday.
"We intend to fully localize production in Russia, not because of sanctions but those being our long-standing plans," he said.
According to Khasbulatov, the company will fully replace imported chicken and cattle meat with Russian analogues within 2 years and will have its own potato production in Russia by 2017.
"The [joint] project with Belaya Dacha is in force. They promise we’ll receive the first product by the end of 2017," Khasbulatov said, adding that McDonald's is not in talks with YugAgroHolding on similar project.
"Russia is still one of the most interesting regions for investing and opening new outlets," he said.
