Kazakhstan: 10 thousand tons of tomatoes from Pavlodar

A new greenhouse with the capacity of 10 thousand tons of tomatoes has been launched in Pavlodar region. 200 working places have been created in Ekibastouz.

The new complex by LLC Greenhouse Qaztomat consists of two greenhouse zones, a refrigerator warehouse and a service zone. The enterprise uses the equipment of Dutch production, which enables favorable microclimate in the premises.

“We are raising four children with my wife. We have been living in the capital for 10 years, renting a flat”, shares Mr. Aldan Aydzhanov. “We have moved to Pavlodar region this year and have immediately got the job in the greenhouses”.

After the new complex has been launched, the tomatoes are grown here in the territory of 20 ha. Last year they got 2.7 thousand tons of crops and this year it is planned to reach the level of 5 thousand tons of produce.

“When the greenhouse complex was being projected, I was rather skeptical about it”, noted the governor of Pavlodar region during the new greenhouse presentation ceremony. “Today the enterprise has far going plans on production development that we are going to support. For us this project is important not only because of the increase of the fresh vegetables volume but also because of the social development. 80% of the greenhouse employees are women and the enterprise is vital for the region due to lack of jobs for women in Ekibastouz”.

LLC Greenhouse Qaztomat grow export oriented produce. About 90% of the tomatoes produced by the enterprise are delivered to the major Russian retailer Lenta. Apart from tomatoes, they grow flowers. This year in addition to Dutch roses, they are going to cut the first batches of tulips.
