MANILA -- Century Pacific Food Inc said Tuesday it would supply tuna, sardine and coconut milk products to Russian farms, under deals signed during President Rodrigo Duterte’s visit to Russia.

The maker of Century Tuna said it signed separate memoranda of understanding with Magnit Food Retail Chain, Dalimo and LLC Dalpromryba for tuna and sardines and with Panasia Impex Co for coconut milk.

"Russia is an attractive market for us because of its large, increasingly affluent, and highly educated population,” Century Pacific COO Gregory Banzon said in a disclosure to the stock exchange.

Shares of Century Pacific were unchanged at P15.08 at noon trading Tuesday.
