GOMEL, 12 May (BelTA) - Rogachev Milk Canning Factory has shipped the first batch of dairy products to Libya, BelTA has learned.
This market is new for the Belarusian producer. It is not traditional condensed milk with sugar that is popular here, but condensed milk without sugar. It is added to tea, coffee and is used in cooking. "Libyans consume a significant amount of condensed milk without sugar. The partners immediately noted the high quality of our product and announced their intention to cooperate with us," Rogachev Milk Canning Factory said.
The company shipped several containers of condensed milk to Libya in April.
Libya does not have sufficient production capacities to meet the local demand for food. The country has to import most of food products, including condensed milk. Now Rogachev Milk Canning Factory is working on further deliveries to this market.
Founded in 1938, Rogachev Milk Canning Factory manufactures more than 80 products. It is one of the CIS largest high-tech producers of canned milk, baby food, whole milk products, cheese and butter.
