Growth Guarantee for the biggest retailer in Russia with integrated greenhouse

Magnit, Russia


Founded in 1994 in Krasnodar, Magnit was a small regional company. Since then Magnit has evolved into one of the largest companies in Russia and besides that they are the only Russian food retailer having its own food production capabilities. With their greenhouse, they can provide their supermarkets with fresh grown cucumbers and tomatoes year-round. Due to Certhon’s promise of offering Magnit a growth guarantee of a certain amount of kilograms per square meter, Magnit and Certhon started working together. And because that promise has been kept, Certhon has already been able to build several projects at that location.
