“Bykhov vegetable can factory” delivered the first consignment to the USA. The information is provided by the director of the company Sergey Gromyko.
According to him, the consignment is not huge: tomatoes, marinades, birch sap totaled for $4 thousand. But the company hopes to consolidate American market and to increase export to this country.
Cooperation with the USA is an attempt to diversify markets. Competition in this business is rather tough both in Belarus and abroad. Moreover, the enterprise was being modernized for 2 years (2007-2008) and production was not large. As a result, most previous traditional markets were lost.
