Jan. 31 (Bloomberg) -- Mironovskiy Hleboproduct SA, a Ukrainian poultry producer, said its chicken-meat production rose 7 percent last year as the company boosted the efficiency of its facilities.
Chicken-meat production rose to 384,000 tons in 2011, the company said in an e-mailed statement today. Domestic demand for poultry remained high, Kiev-based MHP said.
Exports of chicken meat in 2011 rose 80 percent compared with the year-earlier period and accounted for 10 percent of all chicken-meat sales, according to the statement. MHP opened new export markets and began sales to Libya, Lebanon, Uzbekistan, Angola and other countries, it said.
