The company, which will be engaged in the production and processing of potatoes, opened in the Tyumen region. This is the first enterprise of its type in Russia, the press service of the regional government said on Thursday.
“A unique enterprise was launched in the Tyumen region. Here they learned to work not only with the production of marketable potatoes, but also to introduce sufficient areas into the crop rotation structure and produce seeds for other agricultural producers. Now there is processing, something that is not in many regions of the country. This is certainly a revolutionary and breakthrough approach, ”the words of the Deputy Minister of Agriculture of the Russian Federation, Ivan Lebedev, quoted the press service.
The report states that the project included installations for the production of freshly cut potatoes, treatment plants, high-tech equipment, machinery and equipment for field work. 51 jobs created.
“The government will always provide support to enterprises that are developing such projects. They will be supported at the federal level. This is only the first step on the road to deep processing, ”the press service of the region’s governor, Alexander Moor, quotes.
In March 2018, the press service of the government announced that KriMM Agrofirm will open the first Russian plant for the production of potatoes prepared for cooking in 2019 in the Uporovsky district of the Tyumen region.
Agrofirm KriMM is the largest agricultural holding company, one of the leaders in seed potato production in Russia. In 2016, the company produced 53% of potatoes in the Tyumen region and 25% of seed potatoes in Russia.
