One of the major changes in the rating of dairy holdings of 2016 was the new leader. Danone has given the first place in the rating to PepsiCo, whose share in Russian processing amounted to 8.31%, the volume of processing amounted to 1,430 thousand tons of milk in 2016. Danone that occupied the second position, processed 1,418 thousand tons of milk, the share in the total volume of processed milk in Russia amounted to 8.2%.
Both companies have reduced the volume of milk processing in 2016. The volume of processing of Danone fell by 11.3%, or by 181 thousand tons in comparison with 2015. PepsiCo has reduced processing by 4.7%, almost by 70 thousand tons.
Due to the fact that the major players have reduced the volume of processing the share of TOP 5 and TOP 10 in the volume of milk processing in the country has decreased. In 2016 the TOP 10 companies processed 29.7% of milk, the TOP 5 – 22.84%.
The third place in the top five remained for JSC Molvest that showed the biggest increase in processing in absolute terms, +69.8 thousand tons in 2016.
The company “Komos Group” has also increased processing (+23.4 thousand tons in 2016) and retained the fourth position in the rating. JSC MC Prosto moloko fell from the fifth place to the eighth in 2016, having reduced the processing by 68 thousand tons.
The fifth place was occupied by enterprises incorporated in the holding of "State property", due to adding new data onto an Interactive map RDRC and increasing the volume of processing in the state's largest milk processing sites. State enterprises processed 271.5 thousand tons of milk in 2016.
Ratings of the TOP 50 by the results of 2017 (TOP-50 companies-processors of milk, TOP 50 dairy plants, as well as the TOP 50 enterprises-producers of milk and the TOP 50 companies-producers of milk) will be prepared in the first quarter of 2018 and presented in the framework of the Dairy Olympics to be held on May 20 – 22, 2018 in Sochi.
