As Russia intensifies its military attack on Ukraine, a Ukrainian pet food producer Kormotech continues to produce pet food for cats and dogs and is in the process of opening a charity in Lithuania to accept donations for its pet-focused charitable activities, according to senior company representatives.
“This is a full-scale war, and since the beginning of the Russian invasion, I and most of our team have been based in Lviv, in western Ukraine, close to the border with Poland,” said Kateryna Kovalyuk-Burko, head of PR and communications at Kormotech. “We have our headquarters, factory, and warehouses here, and it’s relatively safe. Still, air raid sirens go off once in a while, forcing us to seek shelter.”

“Despite this, our team is high-spirited, and we continue to produce dry and wet pet food for Ukrainian pets,” Kovalyuk-Burko added.
She explained that the plant in Lviv has not been running at full capacity, but the company has raw materials in stock and also significant amounts of finished products in its storage facilities.
“Our major concern now is with logistics, as the Russian military has severely damaged infrastructure in many parts of Ukraine. We have distributors across the country, but in some parts, they can’t transport our pet food because numerous roads were destroyed or blocked,” she said.
“Many homes and shelters were damaged in explosions caused by Russian soldiers,” Kovalyuk-Burko said. “We decided to set up a center, operated by 25 persons, and tasked with physical deliveries of pet food to shelters, border guard outposts, and other places with pets in need. As we speak, nine tons of pet food are on their way to shelters across Ukraine.”
