RUSSIA – Finland-based meat processor, Atria, has sold its minority share to a piggery company operating in Russia, OOO Dan-Invest.

The share has been sold to the majority shareholder, Denmark-based Dan-Invest A/S.

Atria’s and Dan-Invest’s holdings in the company were 26 per cent and 74 per cent, respectively.

The deal was closed on 30 September 2013, and the holding will be transferred to the purchaser with immediate effect.
