The open joint stock company Belsolod is expanding its presence on the markets of Southeast Asia, the company’s director general Sergei Gorbatsevich declared.
“The Belarusian president set a goal to diversify sales markets. We have met this goal. Today we are advancing into new markets such as Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, and Malaysia. We have already made first shipments there. We signed a contract for 7,500 tons. This is about 10% of all our exports. It took us a year and a half to conclude a contract. This is a long period, during which we worked 24/7,” Sergei Gorbatsevich said.
Belsolod regularly exports malt to Russia, Georgia, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Ukraine, and Moldova. Trial deliveries have been shipped to Brazil.
In 2016 Belsolod was named the winner of the regional quality excellence award.
“This award shows that the Belarusian malt producer is ready to satisfy the needs of Belarusian breweries but also the transnational companies such as Carlsberg, Heineken, Efes,” Sergei Gorbatsevich said.
The open joint stock company Belsolod started out in 1989 as the Ivanovo malt plant. The company is a part of the Belgospishcheprom concern. It produces brewing barley malt. Currently, the production capacity stands at 130,000 tons per year. (BelTA/Business World Magazine)
