Third quarter 2018 highlights:

 

  • Chicken: Sales volume of 131.3 thousand tonnes remained on par with 3Q17 and the previous quarter and was positively affected by 7 thousand tonnes destocking in August. Average sales price increase of 12% y-o-y and 6% q-o-q was driven by Petelinka and Chicken Kingdom branded products, as we move up the value chain towards a higher share of branded value-added products, with a larger proportion of deboned, RTC/RTE products, as well as domestic supply disruptions.
  • Turkey: JV Tambov Turkey sales volume of 9.3 thousand tonnes advanced by 30% y-o-y, but declined 12% compared to the previous quarter due to a temporary operational setback. Average sales price improved by 2% y-o-y and 16% q-o-q due to the expansion of Pava-Pava branded offering and lower base effect of 3Q17.
  • Pork: Production and sales volume was higher compared both to 3Q17 results and the previous quarter as we ramped up output at newly built facilities in Lipetsk and Voronezh regions. Prices gained 17% compared to 3Q17 and 13% to the previous quarter, as the pork market was supported by seasonally higher consumption, the worsened epizootic situation across selected regions and associated supply constraints coupled with lack of imported pork meat.
  • Meat Processing: Sales volume increased by 13% compared to 3Q17 results, and 3% vs. the previous quarter due to a higher level of carcass sales, offset by lower sales of sausages and cuts. In sausages category, a greater share of dry and semi-smoked sausages in sales contributed to a higher average sales price. Cuts and carcass prices dynamics were in line with live pork prices.
  • Grain: Due to the seasonal nature of the business, the results of this segment are reported annually to better reflect business performance.
