MHP seeking to acquire Slovenian Perutnina Ptuj
The agro-industrial holding Myronivsky Hliboproduct (MHP), following the announcement from the Slovenian Competition Protection Agency, confirmed that it was seeking to acquire Perutnina Ptuj, a well-established and vertically integrated company in Southeast Europe.
"MHP is undertaking a strategic step with this expansion, which will add value to the company and strengthen its position as a global player, while Perutnina Ptuj is obtaining a strategic long-term investor," the message reads.
Perutnina Ptuj has a strong brand and significant share of poultry value-added products, which MHP is ready to support over the coming years through investment and further development.
Together with a highly experienced management team, MHP states it commits itself to improve the quality of the Perutnina Ptuj’s production base to meet the highest EU standards. This cooperation will bring direct benefits to local farmers and employees as well as have a positive impact on the poultry industry in the Balkan’s region in general.
In 2016, MHP launched a chicken meat processing facility in the Netherlands. Next year, the company acquired a production in Slovakia. Previously, the owner of the holding Yuri Kosyuk announced the intention to buy several plants in the EU. MHP also had considered the acquisition of the French Doux Group, but the purchase was not made. Polish media also reported the interest of Yuri Kosyuk to the Exdrob.
