Milk and meat production growing in Belarus

Over the years of the country’s independence, Belarus’ agricultural sector has undergone large-scale modernisation. As a result of it, the country produces 1.5 times more milk and 1.8 times more meat than in 1995. The domestic market is fully secured: over 1,500 dairy products and more than 1,000 meat products are offered to buyers.

As Belarus’ Agriculture and Food Minister, Igor Brylo, noted at today’s Belarus Meat international forum in Minsk, the country exported $6.7bn of food last year and, by 2025, the increase in agricultural production should be at least 14 percent. By then, 9.2m tonnes of milk and 2.1m tonnes of meat are to be produced, and exports are expected to reach $8bn.

At the moment, the Belarusian agro-industrial complex operates stably. No failures in the supply of food are registered, and a sowing campaign meets all schedules.
