For the first time in 12 years, the SOE “UKRSPYRT” exports alcohol from Kovalivka Business Site to Turkey (photo)
Thus, for the first time in 12 years, a Turkish company purchases alcohol from the Kovalivka Business Site in the Ternopil region.
We recall that the Turkish market has been blocked from 2006.
“This is an important signal from our foreign partners concerning the trust in the business reputation of the enterprise.
This contract was implemented as part of the strategic development plan of the SOE “UKRSPYRT” in Ternopil region in accordance with the memorandum signed between Ternonil Regional State Administration and SOE “UKRSPYRT” on February 2, 2018.
Yuriy Luchechko said: “The commitment to foreign markets and import substitution are important elements of our activities. In 2017, the SOE “UKRSPYRT” launched a vodka production line, which is also exported, and currently we received orders for the supply of two more machines to Germany”.
"We got 10 tank cars, which take 32 thousand tons of alcohol for export (1 decalitre is equal to 10 liters, - editor's note), said Andriy Chorba, the head of the Kovalivka Business Site of the SOE “UKRSPYRT”. – The cars will go to Odessa, from where they will go to Turkey by the ferry. In the future, we are very much looking forward to working closely with our Turkish partners”.
“We need to develop a common strategy to move in the same direction, because the alcohol industry is very important, since it forms not only the budget of the state, but also the budget of the region. And at the time, the alcohol industry generated about 20% of its own revenues in the Ternopil region. Therefore, we clearly hold the position that the plants which are ready and capable of producing high-quality, competitive alcohol should continue to maintain their professional orientation towards the production of potable alcohol. The second category of plants which can no longer produce high-quality alcohol should be reoriented to bioethanol production. And this issue shall be resolved at the state level, and that’s exactly what we are working at”, underlined Stepan Barna.
Currently, the Kovalivka Business Site is one of the most powerful plants in the region. It produces 2 thousand decalitres of alcohol per day. Almost 90% of alcohol is shipped for export. The main partners are Hungary, Poland and Georgia. In addition, the enterprise provides employment for local residents and residents of the surrounding villages. In general, over 100 people are employed at the alcohol plant.
