EDINBURGH, Scotland. – Aviagen LLC has been honored with the Tula regional Golden Mercury 2019 award in the category of best foreign company serving the Russian market. At a ceremony on March 27 at the Assembly of the Nobility, President of the Tula Chamber of Commerce Yuri Agafonov presented Aviagen LLC General Director Valery Starodubtsev with the award.
