Uzbekistan, Tashkent, Nov. 7 / Trend V.Zhavoronkova /
Uzbekistan is interested in purchasing the Azerbaijani mineral water 'Badamli', Azerbaijani Gemigaya holding marketing director Fazil Farzaliyev said at the Azerbaijani national exhibition in Tashkent.
"The 'Badamli' brand expands the range of products, and has already begun production of fruit nectars under this brand. The quality of products meets the international standard ISO-2001", Farzaliyev said.
He said the main purpose of participating in the exhibition is to supply the products to the Uzbek market.
"Although we have many rivals, our products are in great demand abroad," he said. "Our products will be presented in St. Petersburg on Nov.15 and in London in February."
The Azerbaijani and Uzbek economic development ministers agreed to cooperate in this field in the framework of the exhibition.
"There is an agreement to conclude a contract on export of our products to Uzbekistan," Farzaliyev said.
Azerbaijan resumed commercial production of the popular mineral water 'Badamli' in August 2009. Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev inaugurated the plant to produce 'Badamli'
in the Nakhchivan Autonomous Republic (NAR) after a major reconstruction.
The plant was commissioned in 1947.
The 'Badamli' mineral water was quite popular earlier, as the water 'Istisu' and 'Sirab'. The company technologically outdated and virtually stopped production in 1990.
In 2004, the factory was privatized by the local company LLC "Gemigaya Mineral sular", which upgraded the whole cycle of production, transportation and water filling.
A new production facility was established in the plant. Its construction was launched in 2008 in the area of 2.1 hectares. The equipment of the French company SIDEL has been installed at the enterprise.
