Dairy brands

Belarus is one of the world’s biggest exporters of dairy products.

Belarus’ dairy holding companies and plants make a wide range of products: milk of different types, butter, sour cream, kefir and other fermented milk drinks, farmer cheese, yogurts and desserts, ice cream, cheeses of traditional and elite varieties. The list of legendary brands also includes Belarusian condensed milk from Rogachev and Glubokoye.

The dairy production process meets the sanitary, hygienic and thermal standards. The dairy companies of Belarus have actively supported the idea of developing industrial tourism. Among them are well-known brands Babushkina Krynka, Savushkin Product… As a rule, the companies welcome tourist groups. The most convenient way to visit a dairy in Belarus is to book a tour with a travel agency.
