New Cannery Built In Bishkek

Wednesday, June 21, 2017 - 16:56

Bishkek, the capital of Kyrgyzstan, has seen the completion of construction of a new large canning plant that will export its products: primarily to Russia and other EEU countries. Annually, the plant will produce over 100 tons of pickled canned vegetables and fruit juices, most of which will go to Russia and Kazakhstan. “We have already assembled all the necessary modern equipment of Italian manufacturers, and we have the opportunity to process the full range of vegetables and fruits that grow in Kyrgyzstan,” said Oleg Vandaev, the technical director of the new plant.


The construction of this enterprise was started in 2016, and all the works were completed in less than a year. The project was financed at the expense of the Russian-Kyrgyz Development Fund.


The new enterprise has a specialized food laboratory fitted with all the necessary testing equipment. The lab specialists will check the raw materials and finished products for the content of nitrates and other harmful substances.


“All of our products are environmentally friendly, so our canned goods will be both healthy and tasty,” said, Shailohogul Mailyeva, the general director of the Bishkek cannery.


According to experts, the company's canned products will compete with producers from China, Europe and South America. In addition, due to the absence of customs duties within the Eurasian Economic Union, products of Kyrgyz origin will be cheaper for buyers from Russia and Kazakhstan by about 10 percent than similar products from other countries.


In addition to this project, the Russian-Kyrgyz Development Fund intends to finance a number of other projects. In 2017, it has allocated funds for construction of machine-building plants in Kyrgyzstan.
