RUSSIA, Moscow. Cherkizovo Group has completed the acquisition of Altaisky Broiler from the Prioskolie holding company.
The deal size amounted to RUB 4.5 bn, and the Russian Federal Antimonopoly Service already approved the transaction. Cherkizovo announced its intent to acquire the Altai Territory based poultry producer in summer 2018.
Altaisky Broiler is one of the leading players in the Siberian poultry market with an annual output of 67,000 t (live weight) of poultry products (58,000 t of finished products). The acquisition will enable Cherkizovo to access the Siberian Federal District market and strengthen its market-leading position in the domestic poultry market.
In order to supply the Altai producer, and cover the Group’s self-sufficiency in hatching eggs supply, Cherkizovo also acquired production facilities of the Krasnoyaruzhsky Broiler (Belgorod Region) from Prioskolie along with the parent stock.
The Company plans to use Altaisky Broiler as the foundation for its distribution system in the Siberian Federal District, selling chicken products under Altaisky Broiler, Petelinka and Chicken Kingdom brands. The Group also intends to increase its processed meat supplies to Siberia.
The No. 1 poultry producer in the Altai Territory, Altaisky Broiler is also among the largest poultry producing companies in the Siberian Federal District. Established in 2007, Altaisky Broiler delivered its first products to the market in December 2008.
