SLAVGOROD, 2 June (BelTA) – Setting up production facilities outside Belarus will reduce the cost of exports, Belarusian Prime Minister Roman Golovchenko said as he visited the Slavgorod branch of Babushkina Krynka dairy, BelTA has learned.
A delegation headed by the prime minister inspected the Slavgorod branch of Babushkina Krynka which produces hard and semi-hard rennet cheeses. When discussing the development of the enterprise, Roman Golovchenko outlined the issues of reducing the cost of exports, including by means of setting up new industries outside the country. Such logistics stimulates the further development of the enterprise. Today most of the exports go to the Russian market. In figures, this is more than 72%. However, it is important to explore other destinations.
Today, the Slavgorod branch manufactures 33 types of products of various maturity periods. The production capacity is 12 tonnes of cheese per day.
"Last year, we processed 44,600 tonnes of milk and more than 3,500 tonnes of cheese. It was 25.3% more than in 2021,” the head of the branch Vladimir Belyus said. “The modernization, which was completed two years ago, enabled us to increase the output and expand the product line-up. It was carried out in accordance with Decree No. 235 ‘On the social and economic development of the south-eastern region of Mogilev Oblast'.”
