Atria Baltic figures for the 2007

During 2007 Atria Baltic''s operations were centralised in Estonia and the operations at the Lithuanian factory stopped in August. The aim is to further improve operational profitability.
Due to the losing down of the Lithuanian operations, Atria Baltic''s turnover decreased and was EUR 26.7 million. The costs from the shut-down weakened the operating profit, which was in the red, at EUR -4.4 million.

During the spring Atria launched an EUR 8 million investment programme in Estonia, the majority of which is directed at ensuring raw material procurement and quality for primary production. Some of the investments were directed at increasing the capacity and cost efficiency of the Valga production plant.

In Q4 earnings was weakened by a heavy increase in raw materials in primary production, in particular in animal feed costs. During the review period, Atria Baltic''s and Russia''s operations were reorganised. Food engineer Kari Körkkö has been appointed as the country manager of Atria Baltic operations and the Managing Director of AS Valga Lihatööstus and UAB Vilniaus Mesa from 1 November 2007.

Thanks to implemented restructuring and investments, Atria Baltic has good preconditions for profitable operations in Estonia. Investments in product development and marketing will boost operational growth. We expect that raw material prices will remain high.
