Chicken company rules the roost



HP looks set to take its all-conquering poultry produce to the EU elite following the commissioning of Ukrainian export at the end of 2012, with the company expecting to start exporting its poultry produce to EU countries in the first half of 2013. It has taken 15 years to reach this point, despite some staggering and rapid expansion since Mr Yuriy Kosyuk founded the company in 1998. And having become the number one poultry producer in its native country, the business’s international influence 2

is now spreading at an equally impressive rate. International relationships MHP now exports 15 percent of its chicken internationally, having formed relationships outside of the Ukraine over the past five years. The Middle East has been a welcome exponent of this geographical growth, while 2012 also saw African nations introduced as part of the organisation’s evergrowing distribution network. “It is a little challenging to export to these countries but it works really, really well,” said Head of

The entirely self efficient Ukrainian poultry producer and agricultural specialist continues to expand at a staggering rate as its sets its sights on new international markets Written by: Matthew Staff and Produced by: Kelly Keegan >>> Investor Relations and PR at MHP, Anastasiya Sobotyuk. “Total production in 2012 was roughly 400,000 tonnes of chicken, and we expect this to grow over the next six years, with a new capacity launch.” Vertical integration MHP’s recent successes overseas, and imminent expansion of a similar kind, is testament to the capacity growth that the company has achieved over the past decade. As well as the business’s well established poultry operations, MHP also pays homage to its

grain growing development which has been an integral part of the organisation since 2005. “We established our grain growing operations, and started to cultivate land,” Yuriy Kosyuk continued. “Step by step we introduced a vertical integration business model so that we are now 100 percent vertically integrated across the whole company, starting from production of grain to production of fodder, from breeding to hatching eggs, from processing to distribution. “From 2004 until 2007 we built a huge new complex investing more than US$500 million to increase 3

capacity. At this time, this complex could produce more than 200,000 tonnes of chicken per annum; the biggest poultry production capacity in Ukraine. “From 2010, we began the construction of the Vinnitsa complex which we launched by the end of 2012, and which will double our current production capacity of 400,000 tonnes in the following six years.”

“This US$1.2 billion investment into this complex is not only about poultry, but I’m talking about processing, rearing sites, fodder production, infrastructure, trucks, everything. It was for the entire vertical integration. It is a huge complex,” explained Sobotyuk. Further to this cause, MHP’s land bank has also increased from 180,000 hectares during 2010 to around 300,000 to aid

self sufficiency in the production and sale of crops. The company’s purpose is to continue land expansion, to cultivate around 500,000 hectares by 2016. Number one “Our nearest competitor has three times less market share than our 50 percent. Competitor number three has five times less again,” continued Sobotyuk. “We are able to sell our produce at premium price too, which is around six percent higher than the nearest competitor. People know that quality and bio-security are cornerstones for the company, and they have been with us for more than 15 years already.” A strong emphasis on bio-security,

safety and quality control is pushed through extensive media advertising, and all of this effort, investment and expansion resulted in US$1.2 billion in revenue for 2011, and a projected US$1.4 billion for 2012. Something new Following the collapse of the Soviet Union the company was brave in trying to offer a new food solution to the country quite so soon. “It was 2000 and many enterprises in Ukraine closed their operations and it was difficult to find fresh chicken produced in Ukraine at the time,” explained Sobotyuk. “At that time most chicken was imported from the USA and it was all deeply frozen. “When Mr Kosyuk established 5

his enterprise back then, we started the commercial production of chilled chicken, which was branded and produced by the local producer.

From this, we receive two products: first of all we produce gas, second we receive chicken manure. With the manure we fertilise our land and from the gas we produce electricity, hot water and cold water; all required for use in our operations.” 16

Striving for self efficiency and entire vertical integration, as well as an outstanding marginality of the business is what separates MHP from its rivals domestically and what is now promising to put it on the global landscape too. Sobotyuk concluded: “Mr Kosyuk’s key philosophy is ‘if you want to do something really well, do it yourself’, and that has been a very successful philosophy for this company over the past 15 years.”
