Berju Kompleksas was acquired by the current shareholders in 2012. At the time of purchase, the farms were in a state of conservation.

Byarzhu kompleksas is a closed joint stock company with 5 main shareholders

The company has signed a contract with JSR Genetics, UK for the purchase of sows for herd renewal. JSR Genetics is also a supplier of genetic material necessary for the implementation of the genetic program.

The sale of commercial pigs started in 2013
During 2012-2014, the company made investments in order to modernize farms and improve the conditions for keeping animals, for example, the purchase of new ventilation systems, heating, the purchase of heavy equipment, auto transport, improvement of the biosecurity system (corridor systems between farms, fencing of farms along the perimeter modern fences with video surveillance and laser motion sensors), as well as general work on the renovation of farms. In November 2015, the third stage of the project for the modernization of the complex was carried out under an agreement of partial financing from EU funds.

In October 2014, Berju kompleksas began to produce its own feed. Byarzhu kompleksas ensured the production of feed for the livestock of sows, fattening and partly growing on the basis of purchased premixes.

Between August and October 2015, a project was carried out to modernize ventilation and feeding systems (manufactured by Big Dutchman) at the central farm. Ventilation and liquid feeding equipment from Big Dutchman was purchased for the central farm in Shilai to increase production performance. The total cost of the equipment is 411,000 euros (including VAT). A Massey Ferguson 7624 slurry disposal tractor was also purchased for the disposal of slurry, worth 111,000 euros (including VAT).
