One of the largest meat producers in Russia, the Miratorg agricultural holding, plans to buy about XNUMX hectares of land in the Stavropol region for a new project for the production of vegetables and potatoes. This was reported by the Russian Antimonopoly Service.
According to Kommersant, we are talking about all the shares of Izobilie LLC, Izobilnensky District, which the holding wants to buy from the owner of the company, the AVG Capital Partners fund. "Abundance" grows corn and soybeans on an area of 6,7 thousand hectares with its own irrigation system. According to preliminary estimates, on average one hectare of agricultural land in the region costs 90 thousand rubles, and with an irrigation system - even more than 100 thousand. Thus, the cost of the transaction can be up to 700 million rubles.
This year, the holding plans to open the production of 300 thousand tons of vegetables and potatoes per year. According to experts, the economy in the Stavropol Territory is being sold due to management difficulties, and its holding is acquired due to a drop in demand for meat products. They also believe that the holding wants to rebuild production to grow more profitable vegetable crops.
Earlier, Miratorg already launched a project last spring to produce more than 100 thousand tons of garlic, onion, potatoes, cabbage, carrots and other crops in the Tula region. Its value amounted to more than 6,4 billion rubles.
