BAKU, Azerbaijan, Dec. 27
By Matanat Nasibova – Trend:
Sabirabad cannery, Azerbaijan’s biggest producer of canned goods, has increased production of pomegranate juice, a source at the cannery told Trend.
From the beginning of this year, production volumes amounted to slightly less than 12 million bottles of pomegranate juice, according to the source.
“Last year, this figure was about 11 million bottles,” the source said. “Next year we plan to increase this figure to 13 million bottles.”
The lion's share of products is exported, and a small part is sold domestically, according to the source.
In addition to pomegranate juice, the export share includes narsharab (pomegranate sauce) and minimal volumes of aseptic pomegranate concentrate.
The company's products have a Certificate of Conformity issued by Azerbaijan’s State Committee for Standardization, Metrology and Patents.
The factory has been operating since 1982, and uses Italian and Moldovan equipment.
