DMK plans for more cheese in Russia
The first cheese specialties produced in the new Deutsche Milchkontor (DMK) production facility in Russia should have come onto the market at the end of this year. However, the planning is no longer realistic due to regulations during the coronavirus pandemic. DMK now expects completion of the facility in the first half of 2021.
The Bobrow plant in Russia will primarily produce cheese in various formats. DMK is already the leading manufacturer of blue cheese in Russia with a market share of more than 20%. The capacities for this are currently being expanded as demand exceeds the current production capabilities.
The milk processing volume in Bobrow is to be increased to up to 500-600 tonnes per day, from 20 tonnes a day. With considerable expenditure on production facilities and infrastructure, DMK’s entire investment in the development of the site amounts to between €18 million and €20 million.
