Moldovan company Pomul Regal from the Telenesti district has recently sent the first trial batch of inshell walnuts to Malaysia. The buyers are a group of Moldovan repatriates that plans to retail Moldovan honey and nuts to Malaysians through their online store.
Lilian Florea, commercial director of Pomul Regal, has stated that the company is also negotiating the supply of walnuts with a potential buyer in India.
The Pomul Regal company was founded in 2010 and planted its first walnut orchards in 2013. The company now has 150 hectares of intensive walnut orchards of the “Chandler” and “Fernor” varieties, as well as its own production of planting material. It plans to expand the total area of the orchard to 200 hectares.
In addition to trying to start regular exports to Asian markets, the company plans to expand the supply of inshell nuts to the EU market this year.
