Kazakhstan is an exciting and interesting sales market for Swiss food companies but there are also a lot of opportunities in the food processing and agriculture sector. The government has launched "support programs" to increase and modernise the local food production. Especially Swiss companies in agriculture and food processing (food tech) sectors, could benefit a lot from this situation. The destination is Almaty, the economically most important city in Kazakhstan with almost 2 million inhabitants.

  • Agriculture: Kazakhstan has huge areas for cereals, fruit, vegetables and other agricultural products. In addition, the country has set itself the goal of optimising the utilisation of these areas. Innovative Swiss solutions are needed to achieve this goal. This concerns e.g. seeds, fertilisers, technologies/machines/vehicles to increase harvest quality and quantity, to optimise the management of cultivated areas, storage and much more.
  • Food processing/-technology and packaging: Swiss technologies are important for Kazakhstan processors to improve the quality and quantity of processed agricultural products. Shelf life and shelf life of the end products are also to be increased. This applies in particular to the processing and shelf life increase of meat and milk products, fruit, fruits (e.g. juice production) or cereals.
  • Ingredients: Swiss ingredients can also be used profitably to increase the quality and shelf life of the products.
  • Food: The Kazakhstan market with 18 mio. people offers an interesting potential for Swiss food. There is a constantly growing middle class, which can afford more and more often also imported goods. Especially in the larger cities such as Astana and Almaty, there is an exciting market for Swiss food and beverages.
