Kazakh products are in great demand overseas
Kazakh products are in great demand overseas. The locally-made goods have become popular, including in the neighbouring Russian market, due to the best price and quality. Four Kazakh trading pavilions were opened in Omsk in the autumn of last year. Nearly 20 companies sold about 1,000 items of provisions. The products were manufactured by companies in North Kazakhstan, Pavlodar and Almaty regions.
VERA TSODIKOVICH, TRADE AND SUPPLY CHAIN ADMINISTRATOR IN RUSSIA:
- Deliveries are held twice a week, particularly, on Wednesday and Friday. Products are sold because they are of good quality, organic and very tasty. Customers come for delicacies such as kazy, shuzhyk, sur yet, kumis, Kurt and kospa.
The assortment of Kazakh products is very wide. Nearly 1,000 items are offered. All of the products fully comply with requirements of the Eurasian Economic Union.
