Volume sales in the poultry division increased by 9% to 225,223 tonnes, while value sales also grew 17% to 95.38 RUB/kg (£1.04) from 81.53 RUB/kg (89p) in the first half of the year.
Volume sales in the pork division declined 9% to 74,379 tonnes, due mainly to the quarantine closure of two finishing facilities following an outbreak of African Swine Fever in December 2014, the company said.
Average pork prices increased 17% to 103.37 RUB/kg (£1.12) in the first half of 2015 from 88.72 RUB/kg (96p)in the first half of 2014.
Sales in the meat processing division increased by 28% to 81,755 tonnes on the back of increased sales of case-ready products and meat on the bone, all manufactured from meat sourced from the company’s farms.
Last week GMN reported Cherkizovo had begun a major $336 (£215.18) million pig farm project following the approval of a loan from Sberbank CIB. The 12-year loan will enable the company to develop pig farms housing 46,000 sows.
The project will allow the company to boost pork capacity by 70%, leading to an overall meat capacity of more than one million tonnes per year.
