Slovenian poultry producer Perutnina Ptuj is reportedly exploring options including a sale of the business.

A report carried by Reuters which cited sources close to the matter said the firm "might expect an enterprise value of about EUR120m (US$154.7m) to EUR140m".

A spokesperson for Perutnina Ptuj declined to comment on the matter when approached by just-food.

BNP Paribas, which is said to be an adviser helping the firm explore strategic options, did not respond to requests for comment.

Earlier this week, fellow Slovenian food firm Zito hit headlines as a consortium led by state investment vehicle SDH placed a majority stake in the confectionery-to-frozen food on the block.
