Last week, president Sjavkat Mirzijojev got acquainted with the activities of the Uz-Segang joint venture in Uzbekistan's Tashlak district.
Uz-Segang LLC is capable of processing and exporting 16,000 tons of agricultural products per year. A modern logistics center has been created, equipped with advanced technologies from Italy, Turkey, South Korea and China.
Twenty fruit, vegetable and viticulture clusters were created in six specialized districts of the Fergana region. This year they plan to produce 288,000 tons of products and export 120,000 tons. For this, there are refrigerated warehouses with a capacity of more than 330,000 tons, 25 logistics centers and 90 processing enterprises.
Via Italian ICEOL technology, cherries are sorted and packaged by color and size. The line is capable of detecting and isolating defective fruits with a laser. A South Korean line sorts pomegranates in the same way, showing which fruits have not ripened or started to rot. This contributes to gaining customer confidence and supplying only selected products to the market. The company’s products have Global G.A.P. international certificate.
This year, products worth $20 million will be exported to China, South Korea, the United Arab Emirates, Poland, Russia and Kazakhstan. 250 young men and women work here.
According to an article on uza.uz, the president paid special attention to the issue of a constant supply of raw materials to the enterprise. He gave instructions on cooperation with local gardens and organization of new gardens and laboratories.
