In the spring of producers felt unprecedented excitement, when consumers are in a panic to stockpile before the introduction of the regime of self-isolation. The cost of production for farmers due to the weakening of the ruble began to grow, and the demand from restaurants had fallen to virtually zero. Cherkizovo, the biggest poultry producer and one of the leaders in pork production. Such companies find it hard to instantly adapt to new realities and to change production plans – it is planned for the months ahead, says the General Director of group Sergey Mikhailov. Yet, according to him, the disaster in agriculture has not happened. The crisis will reduce consumption, therefore, the main agricultural support from the state should be primarily in direct cash assistance to consumers.

“Excessive demand exceeded supply”

In March the demand for your products greatly increased?

– You know, high demand, and it exceeded supply. To satisfy him, we could not increase production, since our company already worked for a maximum load. But we were able to reorient the deliveries to the HoReCa channel, sales of which fell nearly to zero, retail. In the spring we decided not to raise prices, as he felt that it would be wrong to speculate in this situation, although demand exceeded supply – from 10-20% to several times depending on the categories. As far as I know, retail follows the same pricing policy.

– That is you yet the prices are generally not increased for retail or still increased, but not on all products?

We usually once a year prices adjusted for inflation. The increase in the price of branded products was scheduled for March – April, but we moved in the summer, given the complexity of the whole situation, which was in the spring.

– It’s interesting, because producers of cereals, for example, almost immediately began to increase wholesale prices.

– Our products have high social value and we don’t want to dramatically raise prices. We also understand that rising prices will lead to a drop in demand, so it should be done carefully and in stages. Still a lot of uncertainty: it is unclear where stabiliziruemost the ruble, it is unclear how changes in grain prices.

But if you don’t raise prices, it will shrink margins because of rising costs?

– We managed to reach almost 100% self-sufficiency in major types of meat – chicken and pork. Moreover, despite the fact that in 2014, the dollar rose from 35 to 70 rbl., the cost of meat has grown over all this time is that 5%. You can even talk about the fact that meat prices have kept inflation. Pork prices in Russia are now among the lowest in the world. Consumption, we are supported by a very efficient production. However, if prices continue to fall, vendors will work with negative profitability, and then the issue will have to be reduced.

The chicken in the manufacture of which Cherkizovo is the leader, should be the beneficiary of savings on products, expect additional demand?
