MINSK, 9 September (BelTA) – Belarus will take part in Armenia Expo 2021 with a Made in Belarus exposition. The event in Yerevan will be running from 16 to 18 September, BelTA learned from the website of the Belinterexpo exhibition enterprise at the Belarusian Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
The Made in Belarus exposition will feature 11 Belarusian manufacturers that will exhibit the best latest products adapted to the preferences and needs of Armenian consumers.
The Belarusian food industry concern Belgospishcheprom will have the largest stand featuring well-known Belarusian brands: Slodych and Kommunarka confectionery factories, Slutsk Sugar Mill, and Minsk Kristall Group, Belarus' largest producer of alcoholic beverages in Belarus.
The Belarusian dairy industry will be represented by Slutsk Cheese-Making Plant and Kalinkovichi Dairy Plant. "Slutsk Cheese-Making Plant is the second largest dairy in Belarus. The company will showcase cheeses, milk powder and butter under the Yas Belous trademark. These types of Belarusian products are traditionally in demand in the Caucasus region. In 2020, they, along with cream and cottage cheese, prevailed in the Belarusian export to Armenia," Belinterexpo said.
The products of Kalinkovichi Dairy Plant are familiar to consumers in the CIS countries, Asia, Africa and the Middle East. In Armenia, the company will present skimmed milk powder, whole powder, butter, dry whey, hard and semi-hard cheeses under the Kalinka trademark.
The Made in Belarus exposition will also feature manufacturers of farm machines. For example, Gomselmash is one of the world's leading producers of combine harvesters and other sophisticated agricultural machines. Two Palesse harvesters have been working on the fields of Armenia since last year.
Grodnooblselkhoztechnika, a major manufacturer of agricultural machinery in Belarus, will take part in the expo too. It incorporates 12 enterprises producing tillage, fodder harvesting, post-harvest handling equipment, and milking systems. Its products sell into Lithuania, Ukraine, Georgia, Russia.
The exposition will also feature Gomel Electromechanical Plant. For more than 20 years, the company has been producing locomotives and rolling stock, and other complex systems.
"In 2021 Belarusian exporters took part in Expo Food & Drinks in Yerevan in May. Then the Belarus - Taste of Nature exposition brought together seven enterprises of the food industry," the exhibition company added.
The organizer of the Made in Belarus exposition is Belinterexpo at the Belarusian Chamber of Commerce and Industry. The event will be held with the support of the Embassy of Belarus in Armenia.
