Slavgorodski Pischevik, which has recently installed a new drying facility, is now offering its first lot of dried vegetables, a company representative told Interfax.
The new facility uses energy-saving infrared drying technology, the expert said.
The first lot includes dried beet roots, onions, potatoes and carrots. Also, they plan to offer dried cabbages any time soon.
Besides, next year they plan to launch dried fruits and berries, the total volume reaching 500 tonnes.
In addition, they plan to commission a temporary vegetable storage facility to accumulate 5,200 tonnes of raw stuff.
The investment projects claimed BYR 16 billion, making it possible to increase production capacity 6.5-fold. The workforce numbers in comparison with the former bankrupt veg-drying plant has doubled.
