Agrokombinat Dzerzhinsky opens trading house in Moscow Oblast

MOSCOW, 21 January (BelTA) - Agrokombinat Dzerzhinsky opened a trading house at Mytishchi Fair, one of the largest wholesale food facilities of Moscow and Moscow Oblast, on 21 January, BelTA learned from the press service of the Belarusian Embassy in Russia.

The decision to open the trading house was made following a Moscow Oblast trading session which the Belarusian delegation attended on 4 December 2015. According to the agreements reached, Agrokombinat Dzerzhinsky will lease more than 400m2 of office space, refrigerating and freezing facilities.

The trading house intends to sell products worth at least $20 million in Moscow Oblast in 2016. The product range will include more than 220 items: frozen poultry meat, dressed meat, readymade poultry products, sausage, and meat delicacies.

Agrokombinat Dzerzhinsky also plans to offer products to agricultural producers such as premixes and feeds for livestock made by the Negoreloye bakery. The plans also include the opening of signature outlets in retail facilities in Moscow Oblast.

According to Director of Agrokombinat Dzerzhinsky Iosif Polochanin, this is the fist time that the company has gotten a possibility to offer such a wide range of products in Moscow Oblast. "We have had strong ties for a long time. But the opening of the trading house is a big step forward," he said.

Director of Mytishchi Fair Alexander Nechiporenko called the opening of the trading house a landmark event. "We have gone a long way towards a new format of long-term and mutually advantageous cooperation. The quality of Belarusian products is well known. It is very high and is always appreciated by Russian consumers," he said.

Alexander Nechiporenko said that holding visiting fairs is actively discussed with the Belarusian colleagues. "We would like to establish ties with other Belarusian agricultural producers. Direct sales, without middlemen, help reduce the price of products and be confident of product quality,” said Alexander Nechiporenko.

Vladimir Akulov, the head of the department for regional trade and economic cooperation at the Belarusian Embassy in Russia, said that Agrokombinat Dzerzhinsky is not the only Belarusian company whose products are in demand in Moscow Oblast. Now the task is to expand the presence of Belarus-made products in Russia, he noted.

During the opening ceremony, Agrokombinat Dzerzhinsky signed a cooperation agreement with Kurinyi Dom chain of poultry meat stores.
