ST. PETERSBURG, September 02. /ITAR-TASS/. Dairy producer Danone Group is considering a possibility of expanding production capacity of a St. Petersburg-based plant by launching two new products, Dmitry Zubov, director of the plant Petmol, told reporters Tuesday.

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.
