According to the company’s technologist Irina Arutina, the green walnut jam is in great demand. Armenian colleagues shared the recipe and technology for its preparation with Abdumannon Ermatov, the director of Subhi Vatan, when he visited Armenia as part of a delegation from the Sughd region in 2019.

Representatives of Subhi Vatan often take part in international exhibitions and fairs of fruit and vegetable products. In 2020, they participated in online fairs due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Their excellent product quality and contacts from these fairs allowed the company to provide products in both domestic and foreign markets in 2020. Under the Shirin Premium brand, the company sold 163.7 tons of various canned products in the amount of $43,300 to Kazakhstan. A total of 21.5 tons of various canned fruits in the amount of $6,700 were delivered to Ukraine and neighbouring Kyrgyzstan purchased 65.6 tons of canned products from Subhi Vatan for a total of $16,600. Also, exports of various juices increased due to the fact that they are bottled in modern glass bottles with a capacity of 750 grams.

Irina Aryutina also announced that Subhi Vatan purchases various fruit and vegetable products for processing on a contractual basis from farms all across Tajikistan. Last year, consignments of dried mulberries, apples, and apricot kernels were purchased in southern Tajikistan and in the Gorno-Badakhshan Autonomous Region (GBAO).

Currently, Subhi Vatan provides permanent jobs and decent wages to more than 60 people.
