The Center for the Study of the Dairy Market (DIA) represents the top 100 largest milk producers in Russia. In 2020, the volume of raw milk production in Russia amounted to 20.7 million tons, 5.4% higher than in 2019. The growth rate of raw milk production in 2020 was higher than the average level of the last seven years.
The share of the TOP 100 largest producing companies in the total volume of milk production in 2020 was 30.3%. The share of the first hundred companies in the Russian market continues to grow, in 2019, the TOP 100 companies occupied 28.4% of the market. In 2020, the TOP 100 companies produced 6.3 million tons of raw milk, which is 12.9% more than in 2019. EkoNiva remained the undisputed leader, 925 thousand tons of milk were produced on the holding’s farms in 2020, which is 21.9% (+166.4 thousand tons) more than in 2019. The growth rate of EkoNiva milk production in 2020 slowed down, in 2019 the growth was 56.7% (+274.5 thousand tons).
Nevertheless, the company’s share in the production of raw milk in Russia has grown to 4.5% (in 2019, the share was 3.9%). Taking into account the eco-reserve, the growth of milk production in Russia in 2020 amounted to 5.4%, without the eco-reserve 4.9%. If we subtract the indicators of the economy from the volume of milk production in the agricultural sector, the difference will be even more significant. In 2020, the growth of milk production in the segment of agricultural enterprises with EkoNiva was 5.3%, excluding the company 4.7%.
The first three of the rating remained unchanged, EkoNiva-Agro-industrial Holding took the first place, the State Property holding took the second place, the Tkachev Agrocomplex Company JSC took the third place, all three players continued to increase the volume of raw milk production. Public sector enterprises increased milk production by 12% (+52.8 thousand tons) to 490.3 thousand tons compared to 2019, the agricultural complex increased production by 15% (+40.6 thousand tons) to 312 thousand tons.
The St. Petersburg Piskarevsky dairy plant remained in fourth place, among private companies, although the growth of milk production on the holding’s farms in 2020 was small, only 1% (1.5 thousand tons).
Rusmolco Holding (Olam Int) rose to the fifth place in the rating. The company increased milk production by 43% (+39.4 thousand tons) in 2020 and climbed six steps up. The company entered the top ten participants of the rating with the fastest growth in milk production in 2020. In general, the top ten of the rating has undergone changes in 2020.
Ak Bars dropped from the fifth place in the ratings to the seventh, reducing the volume of raw milk production by 12.7% (-17.1 thousand tons) to 117 thousand tons. The Kirov company APH Doronichi continued to grow and rose from the eighth to the sixth place in the rating, the volume of raw milk production amounted to 125.5 thousand tons, by 14.8% (+16.2 thousand tons) more than in 2019.
CJSC Kirov Dairy Plant rose from the tenth place to the eighth with an indicator of 116.9 thousand tons, by 15.5% (+15.7 thousand tons) more than in 2019. JSC Concern Pokrovsky went down from the sixth place to the tenth, milk production on the company’s farms increased, but only by 1.8% (+2 thousand tons) compared to 2019 to 112 thousand tons. JSC Krasny Vostok Agro went down two steps in the rating to the ninth place, despite the fact that the volume of milk production on the holding’s farms increased by 5% (+5.6 thousand tons). The Green Valley Group of Companies left the top ten.
Belgorod holding Green Valley in 2020 increased milk production by 1.6% (+1.6 thousand tons) to 104 thousand tons, but this was not enough to remain in the top ten of the rating. The company went down from ninth to 11th place in the TOP 100 milk producers. It is noteworthy that Efko Group, which became a part of the shareholders and founders of the holding several years ago, decided to leave this project in 2021 and focus on plant products. In general, the TOP 10 companies produced 2.7 million tons of milk in 2020, which is 18% (+416.4 thousand tons) more than in the 2019 rating. The share of the top ten in the production of raw milk in Russia in 2020 was 13% (in 2019 it was 11.7%).
It is curious that the” second echelon ” of the rating (tens from 51-100 places) it grew faster than the first one. The fastest growth compared to the 2019 rating was shown by the penultimate ten of the rating (81-90 place), enterprises increased milk production by 30%.
The” second tier ” of the rating is regional milk producers, which show growth rates no worse than giants. The top ten companies with the fastest growth were led by Lipetsk LLC KoloSS, +71.2% (+36.9 thousand tons) to the level of 2019. The company plans to build a cheese factory with a production capacity of up to 23 tons of products per day. The player has moved from 86 to 51 places in the rating. Another example of growth is Sarmich Holding, whose farms produced 58.4 thousand tons of milk in 2020, by 70.2% (+24 thousand tons), more than in 2019. The company rose from 46th place to 26th. In the rating of the TOP 100 milk processors, the holding took the 15th place.
The holding company Zalessky milk from the Kaliningrad region rose from 28th place to 18th in 2020, the growth of milk production amounted to 43.4% (+22 thousand tons). There are quite a lot of newcomers in the rating who have entered the last ten: from the Leningrad region, CJSC Rabititsa Plemzavod (85th place) and LLC Bugry Plemzavod (96th place), LLC Base JV from the Republic of Bashkortostan (87th place), LLC Donskoye JV from the Volgograd Region (94th place) and LLC Molchnik (98th place) from the Kursk region.
Left the rating: Grand-NN LLC (93rd place in the last rating) from the Nizhny Novgorod region, Gomontovo Plemzavod JSC (100th place in the last rating) from the Leningrad Region, APK Rus LLC (96th place in the last rating) from the Ryazan region, Belgrankorm LLC (97th place in the last rating) from the Belgorod Region and Sovagrotech LLC (54th place). Someone has reduced the volume of raw milk production, someone has not grown enough to stay in the rating.
The companies of the dairy market, the first hundred and other players, survived the storm of 2020, but poor visibility remained in 2021, and even the market leader has problems with a tailwind.
In 2021, the growth of raw milk production slowed down. In the first half of the year (January-June) of 2021, 10.5 million tons of raw milk were produced in Russia, which is only 2% more than in the corresponding period of 2021. For comparison, in 2020, the growth of milk production in the first half of the year was 6.4% compared to the level of production in 2019.
According to DIA estimates, the volume of milk production in Russia in 2021 will exceed 21 million tons, an increase of 2-2. 5%. The future is preparing new challenges and the strongest, but not necessarily the largest players, will survive.
