The company, which processes locally produced milk with Italian technology, specializes in the production of cheese, most of which is exported to other countries, mainly to Russia. As of now, the company exports 80 percent of its products, a 25-percent growth from the same period last year, which can be explained by the Russian import ban on certain types of agricultural products, raw materials and foodstuffs from the European Union, according to the representatives of the company.
