According to the results of six months of 2021, the Moscow region takes a leading position in terms of the volume of production of potato by-products. This was announced by the Minister of Agriculture and Food of the Moscow Region, Sergei Voskresensky.
“The Moscow region is the leader in Russia in terms of the volume of potato processing products for six months. These are frozen convenience foods, dry mashed potatoes, chips and more. The volume of production of potato processing products in the region amounted to 72,25 thousand tons, which is 13,8% more compared to the same period last year, ”said Sergei Voskresensky.
According to the minister, last year, in the first six months, enterprises of the Moscow region produced 63,5 thousand tons of potato processing products.
“Such high results were achieved, among other things, due to the work of such producers from the Moscow region as Frito Lei Manufacturing and Russkart, which produce chips, and the Mareven Food Central enterprise for the production of dry puree,” said Sergei Voskresensky.
He added that the Moscow region produces about 39% of the total Russian production of potato processing products.
