Belarusian food and beverage manufacturers are participating in the Interfood Azerbaijan exhibition, which opened in Baku on June 10. The exposition "Belarus - a taste of nature" demonstrates new products from sixteen Belarusian manufacturers of meat and dairy and confectionery products, drinks and equipment for food products.
Interfood Azerbaijan is the first exhibition that has been held in Azerbaijan since the beginning of the pandemic. The event is attended by about 300 companies from 28 countries of the world. The exhibition is traditionally attended by the President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Ilham Aliyev.
The event is attended by Belarusian brands, many of which are already well known to Azerbaijani consumers. Azerbaijanis associate Belarusian products, first of all, with high quality; large supermarkets allocate separate, appropriately branded shelves for products under the brand “Made in Belarus”, and four stores under the eloquent name Belaruski are successfully operating in Baku.
The national pavilion of Belarus is regularly organized at the largest food exhibition in Azerbaijan by the Belinterexpo enterprise of the Belarusian Chamber of Commerce and Industry, traditionally being the largest national presentation at a prestigious event. This year was no exception.
The Brest region is widely represented in the Belarusian exposition. Concern Brestmyasomolprom comprehensively demonstrates at the exhibition the products of subordinate enterprises: Brest meat processing plant, Kobrin butter and cheese plant, Luninets dairy plant. At the stands, you can see a number of interesting novelties, including the Raclette cheese, produced using Swiss technology and perfect for preparing the dish of the same name, which visitors of the exhibition will be able to taste. Other well-known brands of the Brest region are also effectively represented: Pinsk Meat Processing Plant (Pikant trade mark) and Pruzhany Dairy Plant.
“At the exhibition we present a novelty of this year, the meat product“ Bresaola ”- it is a whole piece of beef cooked in the Spanish style, in addition, we demonstrate“ Sudjuk in Azerbaijani style ”- this is a dish with red pepper, which is popular in Azerbaijan and we supply it to the local market for about 5 years. But it should be noted that Azerbaijani buyers, although we try to take into account their tastes, are very interested in traditional Belarusian products, because they want to try Belarusian cuisine, ”said the Pinsk Meat Processing Plant.
Within the framework of the Belarusian exposition, the largest milk processing enterprises of the country are presented - "Babushkina Krynka", "Molochny Mir" and the Slutsk cheese-making plant.
The Mogilev meat processing plant presents its novelty, beef sausage, with a product range of more than 300 items.
