“Industrialny”: the construction of new greenhouses will enable nearly a third to increase the production of vegetables
Doc22 visited one of the largest greenhouse complex in Siberia JSC “Industrialny”. 2016 became quite successful for the company: vegetable production outputs could increase by 12-15%. “We hope that this increase will continue by the end of the year,” shared the forecasts CEO of “Industrialny”, a member of the Board of Directors of the Association “Greenhouses of Russia” Ivan Zyryanov.
“I would especially like to emphasize that this growth was achieved not by increasing the cost of vegetables - prices are steady by increasing production volumes. If we produced 8.6 thousand tons of vegetables in 2015, but we expect to receive about 10 thousand tons this year,” he stressed.
Today, JSC “Industrialny” grows vegetables in greenhouses of 26.6 hectares. 15 hectares - old greenhouses, built 30 years ago, and on 11.6 hectares there are new modern high greenhouses.
JSC “Industrialny” plans to begin the construction of new 4 hectares of greenhouses next year. Replacement of 4 hectares of old greenhouses for new with photoculture will increase the production of greenhouse vegetables by about 3 thousand tons per year. The investment project is ready. Now the company is in talks with banks on attraction of credit resources for its implementation and looks forward to the support of the Administration of Altai Krai and the Main Department of Agriculture.
Products of greenhouse facility: cucumbers, tomatoes, lettuce, greens, cabbage, pumpkin, which are grown by experts of “Industrialny”, are in demand not only in Altai Krai, but also in Novosibirsk, Kemerovo, Tomsk Oblasts, Krasnoyarsk Krai, the Republic of Altai.
“To meet the needs of the residents of Altai Krai, and to supply products at reasonable prices, we are constantly expanding our own sales network. Today, we work with 12 chain stores, including in Biysk, Gorno-Altaisk, in Altai District and in all districts of Barnaul. “Farm Yard” was recently opened, in Barnaul and there we also opened own branch,” said Ivan Zyryanov.
Besides, “Industrialny” established closer cooperation with large retail chains. For example, the company increased the volume of supply twice in the regional network of “Maria RA” this year compared to last year.
