Hochland takes over cheese plant in Russia

On November 30, 2017, Hochland acquired a semihard cheese plant in Belinsky, Russia. The plant is situated in the Penza region about 500 km to the South-East
of Moscow.

This plant produces a Tilsit-type semihard cheese and will continue to be used for this purpose.

In the next few years the plant will undergo major reconstruction. It is planned that it will produce branded retail products after reconstruction and will supply cheese as raw material for the processed cheese plant in Raos. Hochland Russland used to purchase part of their raw material from Belinsky plant already in the past.
