Norway-based Orkla Brands has decided to merge its Russian chocolate and confectionery companies – Krupskaya and SladCo – into one entity named Orkla Brands Russia. The integration process has already started. Headquartered in St Petersburg, Orkla Brands Russia will have about 3,350 employees and a turnover of approx. RUB6.8b (Eur170m).

Vadim Ter-Israelyan has been appointed chief executive of Orkla Brands Russia and the chairman is Paul Jordahl, chief executive of Orkla Brands International.

“Combining the best of both organisations, we will improve our competitive position in a demanding Russian market. The establishment of Orkla Brands Russia is an important step in our long-term commitment in the Russian chocolate and confectionery business. We will keep and develop the local brands, thereby maintaining the Russian tradition and proud history,” says Paul Jordahl.

SladCo has been owned by Orkla since 2005. In 2010, the company had net sales of RUB3.8b and 2,100 employees. SladCo is the market leader in Urals and South Volga, with production in Ekaterinburg and Ulyanovsk.

Krupskaya was acquired by Orkla in 2006. The company is located in St Petersburg, and is the market leader in Northwest Russia. The company had net sales of RUB3.0b in 2010, and 1,250 employees. Over the past years, Krupskaya has fortified its position in Northwest Russia by acquiring several companies and trademarks.
