Every year the FoodExpo-AgroWorld Qazaqstan venue brings together over 400 companies from a variety of industries from 30 countries of the world, 10 of which present their products in national booths with a total area of 8,000 square meters. The fact there is also a lot of interest on the part of international companies means a lot can be achieved along the lines of sharing of experience and practices, modernization of domestic companies, identification of future development trends in the processing and sale of food stuffs.
Creating a positive impulse in the way all the elements of the agricultural industry function the FoodExpo-AgroWorld-Qazaqstan venue strives to promote the creation of internationally competitive domestic companies and an increase in the quality of life in the republic as a whole.
The fact that the number of domestic manufacturers of agricultural products grows every year and domestic companies offer more and more locally manufactured products on the market is welcome news indeed. Thus, in addition to their main functions these exhibitions can also be regarded as indicators of growth in production in the agricultural sector and in the food industry in the country.
