Miratorg, the Russia-based meat processor, has signed a “strategic” new contract to supply Burger King outlets in the country.

A spokesperson for Miratorg, which has supplied Burger King in the past, pointed to the tenure of the agreement.

“The new deal is important because it is a long-term, five-year contract,” he told just-food. Previous contracts had not been long-term, the spokesperson added.

In a statement, Miratorg said it would supply “agreed” volumes of “semi-finished” products to Burger King. The spokesperson said Miratorg would be supplying beef and poultry lines to the fast-food operator but declined to comment further.

Alexander Linnink, Miratorg’s chairman, said: “The long-term partnership between Miratorg and Burger King is an important moment in the development of the Russian restaurant market.”

The Miratorg spokesperson declined to provide figures on the percentage of the company’s sales that are made through Russia’s foodservice channel.
