AMC: two companies occupy half of poultry market in Ukraine in 2015-2017

The Antimonopoly Committee of Ukraine (AMC) estimates the share of PJSC Myronivsky Hliboproduct of the poultry market at 38%, and that of Agromars Complex LLC at 12%, the press service of the agency has reported.
“During the period from 2015 to 2017, more than 100 business entities were engaged in production of chicken meat. According to the preliminary results of research, the share of the largest poultry producers PJSC Myronivsky Hliboproduct was 38%, Agromars some 12%, and Agro-Oven some 6%,” the agency said.
According to the AMC, according to the preliminary results of the study of the poultry market, the agency is considering two possible violations of the legislation on economic competition protection: abuse of a monopolistic dominant position by one of the largest chicken producers or the anticompetitive concerted actions of the largest producers in terms of price policy coordination.
“After receiving information from the market participants, analyzing and clarifying it, the committee will draw conclusions about the presence or absence of signs of violations of the law on protection of economic competition,” the AMC said.
