Our company was founded back in 1992. Until 2016, we were engaged in the manufacturing of bakery products and wood processing. On the beginning of 2016, we began to think about expanding our business and the fact that our region is specialized in horticulture and viticulture was decisive in the choice of strategy of business expansion.
Famous "Namangan apples" were grown up In Yangikurgan District of Namangan region. Such popularity of Namangan apples are due to favorable geographical location of Yangikurgan District, which has long been famous for its delicious fruit, fertile land and fresh mountain air.
After analyzing the market, we concluded that it is necessary to expand our production in the direction of fruit and vegetable semis. For information, we can say the following: in our region processing season begins with the ripening of strawberries, raspberries and apricots (May-June), then you can count on peaches, tomatoes, plums, apples and vegetables (July to November). Provided that we have cold stores and can store fresh products there, fruits season may last for 2-3 months, but it all depends on the proper organization of production and marketing.
We also analysed juice market of Uzbekistan and concluded that most juices in our market are produced mainly from concentrates and purees by adding water, sugar and preservatives. We decided to occupy another nische in the market and to present our market new product – cold pressed juices without addition of water, sugar and other additives.
And we started with the most common type of juice – apple juices. This choice was due to the fact that:
- Apple Juice contains apple pectin, which is the only substance that removes toxins and radioactive substances from human body;
- Apple juice has a beneficial effect on the liver and kidneys, normalizes blood pressure and bowel function.
- Apple juice is so harmless that it is recommended for cmall children consuming.
- Natural juices can significantly improve the health and raise the spirit of people. Of course, the juices are not able to heal the body from any illnesses, but it can serve as an aid. The fact is that natural juices can serve as an analog to any vitamin complex.
Based on the foregoing, we have developed a product – cold pressed apple juices under trademark of “Rio Fruits”, which are produced by austrian production line Voran. And starting from October this year, launched production and started selling juices in Namangan, Tashkent and regions.
It is also worth noting that for the storage of agricultural products, on the territory of Yangikurgan District, village Istiklol, we had bought and converted refrigeration facility with a capacity of 2700 tons \ s products.
In 2017 we plan to start production of a drying plant, which will produce dried fruits; and also a line of cold pressed juices "carrot", "apple + carrot", "apple+pumpkin" and "apple+pumpkin+beet".
