UKRAINE - The opening of its new poultry farm helped boost MHP's poultry meat output by 50 per cent.

Ukraine agro-industrial firm, MHP, has reported a good harvest in 2009 with crop yields per hectare significantly higher than the average in the country, according to IB Times.

Citing Business Financial Newswire, the report continues that MHP's poultry and poultry-related operations segment performed strongly despite the challenging economic conditions in Ukraine.

During the year, the company increased its monthly poultry production volumes and sales by almost 50 per cent compared to the end of 2008 due to the launch of phase two of the Myronivka poultry farm, its new state-of-the-art production facility.
