The project may require “a considerable amount of investment,” Zubov said, without providing any figures.
“(The launch of production of) a couple of new products, which are unique for Russia, is being considered,” Zubov said. The company will decide on whether to execute the project in January-March 2015, while the new products lines may be launched in the course of the next year.
Petmol is a unit of Russian dairy maker Unimilk, which merged with Danone Group in 2010. The plant, the second largest among Danone assets in Russia, produces 400-600 tonnes of products per day, while its projected capacity amounts to 1,000 tonnes per day.
