The potato crop grown in the fields of the Tolochin cannery will be able to receive the fast freezing shop under construction here this year.
Such thoughts were voiced by the chairman of the State Committee for Science and Technology Alexander Shumilin and the director of the Belarusian Innovation Fund Denis Korzhitsky.
It should be noted that the quick freezing shop is included in the list of 60 projects that are being implemented in the country under the current program of innovative development. A total of 18,6 million rubles were invested in the project. Of these, 9,1 million are funds of the republican centralized innovation fund.
With the opening of the new workshop, it is planned to launch the production of a semi-finished product - French fries. As the director of the enterprise Anatoly Anyukhovsky noted: “It is surprising that while producing such a quantity of potatoes in Belarus, we still import certain products from them from abroad. The creation of a new production facility in Tolochin will allow for import substitution. "
