Representatives of the Dutch potato processing equipment manufacturer Kiremko and officials of the Uzbek embassy in the Benelux countries recently met to discuss the prospects of potato processing in Uzbekistan, according to a report by AzerNews.
During the negotiations, the Dutch side was presented with details on the work done in Uzbekistan to attract modern technologies to the agro-industrial sector, modernize production processes, and expand export-oriented products.
The management of Kiremko reportedly expressed the willingness of the company to establish contacts with the Association of Uzbek Potato Producers and to consider the possibility of organizing training sessions on the production and storage of seed potatoes for representatives of the association.
The parties also discussed the prospects of creating a joint venture for the production of processing potatoes in Uzbekistan.
“For the first time, I had a chance to visit Uzbekistan a year and a half ago. I had very good impressions about the country, its investment potential and the created business climate, and there were prospects for cooperation with Uzbek partners. We plan to work more actively with potato producers in Uzbekistan so that in the future we can implement a project to create a potato processing plant in the country and establish a line for the production of french fries and chips,” said the regional sales manager of Kiremko Twan van den Berg.
