The leading producer of plant protection products Shchelkovo Agrokhim and restaurateur Anton Viner, co-owner of the Uryuk projects, OSH, Anton Bar and others, announced the start of a partnership in creating a certified food control system. This is the first domestic experience in the collaboration of a plant for the production of plant protection products and one of the largest restaurateurs in the Moscow region. The corresponding memorandum was signed in the framework of the Golden Autumn 2019 agricultural exhibition held in Moscow.
High-quality food begins with competent, scientifically sound agricultural technologies and responsible farming. Following strict standards should apply to all stages of production - from the field to the finished dish. In this regard, the leading producer of plant protection products, Schelkovo Agrochem, and Wiener Group LLC, which develops restaurant chains, have announced the launch of a pilot project to introduce a food quality control system based on accredited laboratories. There, the products used for cooking in Anton Wiener's restaurant chains will be examined for residual traces of pesticides. Based on the results of the inspection, the dishes on the menu will be marked in a special way - this means that they meet the highest quality standards.
“The problem of using pesticides is not new. Consumers treat them with caution, but at the same time, pesticides are a boon to humanity - they allow us to produce large volumes of products with good consumer characteristics, - explained the general director of Schelkovo Agrochem, doctor of chemical sciences, academician of the Russian Academy of Sciences Salis Karakotov. - However, we urge the use of plant protection products responsibly and control the presence of pesticides in final products. Our joint project involves the introduction of such a quality control system. So that the guests, having come to the restaurants of Anton Wiener, not only enjoy the interior, service and taste of the dishes, but also are confident in the safety of the products ”.
“If earlier we didn’t fix questions from guests about the safety of the initial products for cooking, now requests to clarify“ what's inside ”sound more often- explains the reasons for creating a collaboration Anton Wiener. - We strongly support the all-Russian trend towards the development of food quality and the introduction of the principles of healthy cuisine. We want to integrate the joint project with Schelkovo Agrochem into our entire network, and this is about 30 restaurants. ” The restaurateur expects that the idea will be generally picked up by the players of the HoReCa segment, and the trend for healthy eating will be more actively spread throughout the country.
The next stage of the project will be joint work with agricultural producers on the cultivation of environmentally friendly products. Schelkovo Agrochem is ready to offer the appropriate technologies for the implementation of integrated systems for managing the vegetation of cultivated crops. Own scientific base, many years of practical experience of the company allow us to create unique products that reveal the potential of the culture, significantly reduce the pesticidal load on the soil and have a beneficial effect on the ecosystem.
The partnership will give Schelkovo Agrochem an opportunity to develop new areas of activity, and the restaurants co-owned by Anton Wiener will receive guaranteed high-quality food products all year round. However, first of all, consumers and lovers of healthy and environmentally friendly food products will benefit.
