"In addition to the acquisition of the elevator, we launched another investment project – the construction of a modern potato storage facility with a capacity of 16 thou. t in Lviv region, one of these days we plan to commission it"
Reportedly, Continental already owns 4 grain elevators and 3 grain drying complexes with a total storage capacity of 420 thou. t in Ternopil and Lviv regions.
