On November 26, the Government of the Tyva Republic hosted a meeting on the implementation of a project to organize a meat processing plant.

The initiator of the project became the Finland-based company Omos OY, which has experience in supplying food products to the Scandinavian markets. The head of the company Mirza Mirzayev made a proposal to organize the production of lamb meat and cattle meat products with an export orientation. The production is planned to be organized on the basis of Finnish-made modular structures and further certified for the supply of products to the European Union.

The construction of the agro-industrial park is carried out within the national project “Small and Medium Enterprises and Support for Individual Entrepreneurial Initiatives”. The first production facilities of the agro-industrial park will be launched at the end of 2021, at the same time the project under consideration can also be launched.
Deputy Director General – Head of the Directorate for Attracting Investment Projects of the Yenisey Siberia Development Corporation Alexey Nikolaev presented proposals for organizing support for an investment project, and also informed the meeting about the existing infrastructure for meat processing, which can be used as part of the project. “On the part of the Corporation, we can offer the investor a mechanism for mutually beneficial cooperation and accelerate the project implementation. We also offer the investor to consider the possibility of exporting products: vegetables, wild plants, fish, which will also be produced on the territory of the Tyva agro-industrial park,” added Alexey Nikolaev.
