Dear Ladies and Gentlemen!
On behalf of the National Chamber of Entrepreneurs of the Republic of Kazakhstan “Atameken” let me greet the participants and guests of the exhibition.
Time dictates new quality standards of the products. It is very pleasant that the production development process in the agro-industrial complex is constantly improving and Kazakhstan companies demonstrate high potential in this direction. The exposition of the exhibition includes all areas of the agroindustrial complex: raw materials and ingredients, food products and beverages, food and processing equipment, materials and packaging equipment.
I believe that the new achievements in the sphere of food production, modern production, storage and packaging standards, which are presented at the exhibition, contribute to the promotion of competitive and in-demand products on the market, strengthening of partnerships, updating and expansion of the range of quality food products.
I wish all participants and guests of the exhibition successful work and useful contacts.
Chairman of the Board
Dear Ladies and Gentlemen!
On behalf of “Agrarian Credit Corporation” JSC, I am glad to welcome all participants, guests and organizers of the WorldFood Kazakhstan 2017 – Food Industry, AgroWorld Kazakhstan 2017 – Agriculture international exhibition!
It is known that the food industry is one of the most important part of the economy of the Republic of Kazakhstan and the third in order of importance industry after metallurgy and oil refining. In 2016, volume of gross production of agriculture increased by 5.5% in comparison to 3.4% in 2015.
Kazakhstan faces a critical problem of lack of fruit and vegetables storages. In the Republic 3.3 million tones of vegetables are grown on open ground from May to October, this volume completely covers internal market. But in low season in hothouses Kazakhstan produces only 153 thousand tones of fresh vegetables and more than 530 thousand tones of vegetables is compensated due to fruit and vegetables storages and import from the Central Asia countries, China, Russia and Iran. Now the country has 1.2 million tons of volumes for storage, thus deficit of volumes of industrial storage is 417 thousand tons. To cover the lack it is necessary to make storage volumes of fruit and vegetable products by 2020 up to 1.5 million tones. The most vulnerable regions according to provision of vegetables and products of hothouse are Atyrau and Kyzylorda regions and Almaty city.
To promote increasing competitiveness of products of Kazakhstan agricultural producers, as well to increase producing and exports of products, "Agrarian Credit Corporation" JSC from the end of 2016 implements AgroExport program – establishment of agricultural parks on the south of the country. The concessional financing is made on direction of creation and development of intensive apple gardens, construction of fruit storages and processing enterprises, as well as associated productions in the south regions. In general, during its activity the Corporation financed more than 40 thousand facilities of agro-industrial complex in total sum of more than 463.5 billion KZT within crediting programs.
The AIC of Kazakhstan is an industry that can become a real locomotive of the economy. The development of agriculture directly depends on favorable financing conditions, which are currently fully created, and this work continues.
I wish the organizers, participants and guests of the exhibition further prosperity, fruitful work and implementation of new projects!

On behalf of the Union of Poultry Farmers of Kazakhstan and on my own behalf, I extend our cordial greetings to all participants and guests of these exhibitions Agroworld Kazakhstan 2017 and WorldFood Kazakhstan 2017.
AgroWorld Kazakhstan and WorldFood Kazakhstan are the two largest events of the farming sector and food industry of Kazakhstan. The uniqueness of these events resides in the fact that together they cover the whole cycle of the food production chain: starting from rearing and to retail sales of the finished foodstuffs.
Nowadays, poultry-breeding is the most surging segment of the agricultural sector of Kazakhstan, and it undoubtedly makes a significant contribution to the cooperative arrangements of the food security. For 12 years by now, poultry farmers of Kazakhstan thrive on the business platform of the Forum to strengthen their portfolio and partnerships, establish useful contacts and get acquainted with the latest tendencies and developments of the industry.
In this regard, I would like to bring your attention to the close involvement of the poultry companies in the Exhibition AgroWorld Kazakhstan 2017. This year, the exhibition is being attended by about twenty international suppliers of the equipment and poultry-breeding products.
It is important to point out that domestic poultry farms have a high demand for such events. This Forum provides them with a real chance to find new suppliers and negotiate on the terms of delivery of ready products to mass retailers around the country.
Let me wish all participants, guests and organizers of the event fruitful negotiation, reliable partners and continuous excellence in their production performance.
President of the Union of Poultry Farmers of Kazakhstan
For the attention of participants and visitors of the exhibition WorldFood Kazakhstan 2017!
Greetings to participants and visitors of the 20th largest international food industry exhibition –
WorldFood Kazakhstan 2017, which takes place in November, 1-3 in the pavilions of Atakent Exhibition Center in Almaty, the Republic of Kazakhstan.
Due to the dynamic nature and high level of interaction between Kazakhstan and Russia, there is unprecedented number of exhibitors from Russia. Taking into consideration that Kazakhstan is one of the main foreign trade partners of Russia, the participation of federal and regional Russian export organizations has been increased.
This year more than 10 companies have a possibility to present their production with the support of the Russian Export Center - some of them participate within the framework of the National Pavilion. It also should be noted that not only food will be presented within the REC stand, but packaging, equipment, and food technologies as well. Traditionally, World Food Kazakhstan includes such events as AgroWorld Kazakhstan, KazUpack, ColdChain Kazakhstan, Horex Kazakhstan, in which companies from Russia also actively participate.
I wish all the companies-participants of World Food Kazakhstan 2017 a successful exhibition and further prosperity!

Dear ladies and gentlemen!
On behalf of the ATAKENT Exhibition Center and my own, I would like to congratulate participants and guests on the opening of the 20th anniversary Central Asian International Food Industry Exhibition “WorldFood Kazakhstan 2017”. Let me also welcome participants and guests of the 15th Kazakhstan International Exhibition “Packaging, Tare, Label and Printing” - KazUpack 2017; 15th Kazakhstan Specialized Exhibition "Cleaners and Detergents, Dry Cleaning and Laundry Machines, Cleaning Equipment"- CleanExpo Kazakhstan 2017; 13th Central Asian International Exhibition «Everything for hotels, restaurants, supermarkets» - Horex 2017; 12th Central Asian International Agriculture Exhibition - AgroWorld Kazakhstan 2017; and the 2nd Central Asian International Cold Storage, Transportation and Cold Chain Services Exhibition - ColdChain Kazakhstan 2017.
Exhibition of Food Industry WorldFood Kazakhstan for the first time opened its doors in 1998 and since then its popularity is growing among experts in Kazakhstan, Central Asia and around the world. The exhibition annually demonstrates new technologies and achievements in the field of food production, ingredients and packaging products.
Modern agriculture has also long been associated with innovation and high technology. These concepts are far from new to both industry experts and farmers. In this regard, it is encouraging to note the high level of the companies-producers participating in the exhibition AgroWorld Kazakhstan and regularly presenting new technologies developed based on their own scientific research.
Packaging not only protects the goods, but is also a "silent seller" that promotes it in the market. Modern packaging has become not only a part of the product, but also an independent product that plays an important role in the economy, which will be demonstrated and confirmed by KazUpack exhibitors.
Holding ColdChain Kazakhstan, the first highly specialized exhibition in Central Asia, which main theme is innovative solutions, products and services to meet the requirements for a special temperature regime for the storage and transportation of perishable products, allows covering all the stages of production and sale of food products.
I wish the participants and guests of the exhibition a good mood, quality meetings, fruitful work, success and achievement of the goals.
