MHP: ‘Business as usual’ while communities suffer
Briefing | 29 September 2017 Download
Ukraine’s monopolist poultry producer, MHP, has received more than half a billion euros in loans from the EBRD and other public banks including the European Investment Bank, the International Finance Corporation and export credit agencies like Atradius.
These massive investments have not brought the company’s performance and culture in line with the relevant EU and EBRD standards. Rural communities in Cherkasy, Vinnytsya and the Dnipropetrovsk regions say that if the company continues with ‘business as usual’ they will face more violence and suppression of their opinions.
