From October 5 to October 9, "Expo Center" exhibition complex (Moscow) hosted the 20th "AgroProdMash-2015", the largest exhibition in Russia of state-of-the-art technologies for food industry and ingredients.
"Volga Tannery" for the first time took part in the "AgroProdMash" exhibition, which was a significant step towards further successful development of bovine collagen protein production launched at the plant.
Bovine collagen protein production at the "Volga Tannery" is unique for Russia in terms of industrial engineering degree and product quality. The production involves innovative technologies and our own raw materials.
At "AgroProdMash" exhibition, bovine protein of VT-Pro trademark produced by JSC "Volga Tannery" was presented to the public for a wide range of customers; prior to that, the protein was shipped to partner companies of the tannery, such as the largest Russian meat processors "Ostankino" and "Dmitrogorsk Product".
Expert process engineers, business managers from all over Russia, CIS countries and abroad had an opportunity to get a closer look at the new product and its quality, and take samples for tests. Some customers carried out tests during the exhibition and placed their orders.
On October 6, within the framework of the exhibition, the Fifth World Meat Congress "Imports Phase-Out in the Meat Industry. Choice of Post-Crisis Space" took place in the same venue. The Gorbatov Meat Industry Research Institute presented the Russian product VT-Pro Bovine Collagen (fibrillary collagen), which is expected to be highly competitive on the international market, and makes it possible to meet the demand of Russian enterprises for the highly purified collagen protein.
Before the full-scale manufacturing facility was launched at "Volga Tannery", up to 95% of bovine collagen was imported to Russia from abroad, mainly from Europe, Brazil and Ukraine. Therefore, the launch of the new product fully conforms to the import substitution trend, and the most important thing is that the production is competitive on the global market and has the export potential due to its excellent consumer properties.
