Sweet products from altyn ýunus

Dozens of types of cookies, crackers, chocolate bars, chocolate eggs with a surprise inside and waffles with various fillings – all this is born at one of the enterprisies, a confectionery factory of the Altyn Ýunus private enterprise, located in the Ak Bugday etrap, Ahal velayat. This is where we came to learn about the production of our favourite sweets. The smell of chocolate, which came from a nearby factory, like a navigator, led to sweet things. A high level of cleanliness is maintained there. Putting on overalls, we went to the production workshop, equipped with modern and high-tech technologies, ensuring the automation of the production process. There are kneading tanks at the entrance, where the mass is kneaded at high temperatures.

Entrepreneurship: for Quality Products

We live in a time when everyone in our independent neutral country is provided with the conditions for self-development and self-realisation. And having changed their lives abruptly, many have joined the private sector of the economy. During the years of independence, a number of industrial and agricultural facilities have been built by entrepreneurs in the Ahal velayat. Rapid transition to industrial development is one of the brightest examples of scientifically-based strategy of President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov for building an economic potential in the Ahal velayat. An evidence of this is modern high-tech production complexes, factories, production enterprises and new processing industrial facilities intended for increasing the manufacture of high-quality competitive domestic products, which are built all over the Ahal velayat in the Era of Might and Happiness. In recent years, owing to the policy of Arkadag, carried out under the motto “The state is for the people!”, private entrepreneurs of the Ahal velayat have made great strides in animal husbandry. The number of livestock and poultry is increasing with every passing year, and this contributes to the increase in the production of goods of animal husbandry.

Ak Gaýmak – for Family Gatherings

At a recent meeting of the Cabinet of Ministers of Turkmenistan, President Gurbanguly Berdimuhamedov underlined the necessity of taking measures aimed at increasing the production of consumer goods. In particular, the head of state noted that in connection with the onset of summer heat, more ice cream and fruit juices should be produced. The Neutral Turkmenistan editorial staff decided to prepare a series of materials about the producers of these useful delicacies and drinks. It is, of course, very difficult to tell about everyone who is engaged in this delicious business in our country. There are not dozens of them, but rather hundreds. Therefore, we asked specialists of the Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs of Turkmenistan for help and following their advice, chose several brands, both widely known in our country and those that are just making their first steps in the Turkmen market. And let's start with a delicacy loved by everyone, both children and adults, – ice cream.

Entrepreneurship as a key market segment

Quality Products for Export

Thus, Batly Gadam, a private enterprise from Balkanabat, specialising in the production of socks and yarn, due to the use of the most advanced equipment increases the volume of exports with every passing year.

Components of Successful Business

Due to the comprehensive state support, the potential of small and medium-sized businesses in the Dashoguz velayat and also throughout the country is noticeably growing. Successful entrepreneurs, showing initiative and fulfilling the important tasks of increasing production and improving the quality of domestic products, make a significant contribution to Turkmenistan’s economic growth. In recent years, entrepreneurial activity in the agricultural sector of the region, which is one of the crucial factors in saturating local consumer markets with vegetables and fruit, has expanded significantly. For example, farmers’ associations and private agricultural producers, including the members of the Dashoguz velayat branch of the Union of Industrialists and Entrepreneurs of Turkmenistan, received a large number of plots from the special agricultural land fund for long-term use to grow various food crops. An increasing number of farmers prefer growing potatoes.
