In accordance with the technologies, onions are supplied, washed, peeled, crushed, and dried at 60 degrees taking into account the volume and size then packed and prepared for export. Vegetables, including onions, are purchased from farms in the Sughd region.

With the construction of a new additional line, the number of employees of the Khujand-Agro workshop will be increased to 70 people.

The company’s products of dried vegetables in special packaging are in demand in foreign markets, especially in Russia.

The company is working to bring the composition, type of packaging, and labelling into compliance with international quality standards as well as the preparation and export of agricultural products in accordance with the requirements of the world market.
