In accordance with the agreement signed in December 2019 during the visit of the Prime Minister Askar Mamin to the United States, Tyson Foods, together with the Kazakh company Kusto Group, plans to open a full cycle of beef production in Kazakhstan.

The production cycle will be accompanied by information and consulting services to Kazakhstani farmers based on the model of the American service Extension, which includes consultations, training of local personnel and vocational training.
