Ekosem-Agrar: Stefan Dürr has been elected as Chairman of the Russian
National Association of Milk Producers

Walldorf, 12 February 2019 - The members of the Russian National Association
of Milk Producers ("Soyuzmoloko") have elected Stefan Dürr, Chairman of the
Board of Ekosem-Agrar AG and President of the Ekoniva Group, as their new
Chairman at the 10th Congress of the Association. He replaces Andrey
Danilenko, who has held this position for more than ten years.

Russian Minister of Agriculture Dimitriy Patrushev was also present at the
congress, which traditionally took place as part of the AgroFarm trade fair
in Moscow on 6 February 2019, and commented on the election of the new
chairman: "I am convinced that Stefan Dürr will continue the initiatives
commenced by Andrey Danilenko with undoubted success. Dairy product
manufacturing is crucial for achieving the goals set by the President of the
Russian Federation in relation to the development of the agricultural sector
and attaining a 2.5-times increase in agricultural exports by 2024.
Potentially, milk export can reach from 800 million to one billion dollars
by 2025."

The Minister stressed that public financial aid was only one building block
for the development of the dairy industry in Russia. The demand for dairy
products also had to be increased. As a remedy, Dimitriy Patrushev stated an
improvement in product quality and a decisive fight against plagiarism in
the dairy industry.

Stefan Dürr thanked the Minister of Agriculture on behalf of the present
members of the Association for his commitment and emphasized: "I am looking
forward to the special task as chairman of the Soyuzmoloko. The goal is to
strengthen and further professionalize the team of the Association in order
to implement the manifold tasks quickly and efficiently".
