On 1 June Governor Alexei Gordeyev met Professor Michael Popp, chairman of Bionorica SE. They discussed the plans of the pharmaceutical companies Bionorica SE and Aenova GmbH to build a pharmaceutical enterprise in the region. The site of almost 12 hectares that this will need has been chosen in the Maslovsky industrial park. The total investment is 30 million euros, the regional administration’s press office reported.

The project includes building a factory to produce medicinal products using the method of extraction from natural raw materials (medicinal herbs). The companies currently grow the raw materials for their products on their own sites in Majorca (Spain), but they are looking at the possibility of growing part of their medicinal herbs in Voronezh Region. The Pavlovskaya Niva company has contracted with the company to sow trial fields with four medicinal crops and has already obtained its first good cultivation results.

According to Michael Popp, one of the next steps will be to sign a contract to lease a plot of land, which will take place in the near future. Bionorica SE plans to start building the factory in 2016.
