“So far we are looking at what gives synergy. This is our own production, primarily in Ukraine. But we are watching the market, if any interesting enterprises will appear. We are definitely ready to invest in agriculture – in the land bank, first of all. This is a strategy for us,” Sergei Tigipko said.
Tigipko added that he is looking out for investments in processing, which the group has not yet engaged in. “Where exactly we will go, we do not know yet to the end,” – said the founder of the group “TAS”.
The businessman also said that among the plans for 2024 is to increase the production of apple concentrate.
“We want to increase the export volume of apple concentrate. We plan to invest in one of the two plants, and if everything succeeds, to double production,” Tigipko added.
At the same time, according to the founder of TAS Group, logistics currently “eats up” a large share of funds. He noted that his own logistics company mitigates the situation, but the issue of logistics remains complicated, so the group is studying the possibility of acquiring a European transportation company.
“We are considering buying a European transportation company. This will allow to link the supply chain for the client – both in Ukraine and the EU,” he said.
Financial and industrial group “TAS” was founded in 1998 by businessman Serhiy Tihipko. Its business interests include the financial sector (banking and insurance segments) and pharmacy sector, as well as industry, real estate and venture projects.
