Russia's largest duck farm goes up for sale

Chicken-Duck, Russia's largest duck producer Russia is being put up for sale. Included in the sale is an incubator (total capacity of 300 thousand eggs in one tab), feedlots (capacity 500 thousand ducks per year), feed factory and slaughter plants.


After the commissioning of an additional 25 poultry houses at a total cost amounting to 315.2 thousand rubles, production will increase five-fold and reach 5.2 thousand tons of duck meat per year. However, according to reports the reason for the sale of the farm is its low profitability.

It is reported that one of the potential buyers may be the company Eurodon, the largest producer of turkey in Russia. Eurodon, is currently implementing a major project to build a complex for production of duck meat with a design capacity of 20 tons per year. The total investment in this project will amount to 5 billion rubles (US $ 166 mln), and the achievement of full capacity is scheduled for 2013. If Eurodon acquire the company it will take a dominant position in the market for the production of duck meat, with a share of around 60% according to experts.

    Regarding this comment - probably Eurodon didn't have negotiations of this deal - but at that time there was such information, which was disseminated by various journalists. There were no official comments from representatives of Eurodon or Chicken-Duck that Eurodon intend to buy the farm.
