A workshop for the production of chocolate glaze and chocolate was commissioned in the Tole Bi district of Kazakhstan’s Turkistan region, Trend reports referring to the press service of the region’s administration.

A working group headed by the Governor of the region Zhanseit Tuymebayev visited the workshop of Balmuzdak LLP.
