Quality from field to supermarkets
Being Russia’s largest producer of raw milk, we believe that the expansion of our in-house milk processing activities for increased vertical integration is the next logical step in the development of our company.
The Group started with two smaller dairies in the Novosibirsk and Voronezh regions on a trial basis and subsequently made several acquisitions to increase its processing capacity to approx. 600 tons of raw milk per day, mostly for the production of long-life milk and milk powder.
The existing dairies are currently being converted to increase the capacity for the production of dairy products with higher margins.
The internally produced dairy products are marketed under the umbrella brand “EkoNiva” as well as under private label brands, which are sold by food stores, supermarkets and our own points of sale.
The product range includes fresh milk, yoghurt, curd, hard and semi-hard cheese as well as long-life milk and milk powder. It is our medium-term objective to make the Ekosem-Agrar Group the leading vertically integrated supplier of dairy products in Russia. In 2017, dairy products of the Group won the Metro Quality Award.
