Danish Agro and Food Business promotion to Kazakhstan, Nur-Sultan, Almaty, 15-18 November 2021

Having one of the largest agricultural lands in the world and a significant number of the population engaged in agriculture, Kazakhstan intends in the near future not only to fully ensure its own food security, but also to export its products to many countries of the region.

To achieve its goals, the country has no other way but to develop its livestock and food processing industry leaving Danish exporters of agroindustry, genetics, food processing equipment and ingredients with excellent business opportunities. 

DANISH EXPORT PROMOTION 
The Danish Embassy in Moscow and Danish Agriculture & Food Council (DAFC) hereby invite you to participate in an export promotion trip to Kazakhstan with focus on agro-industry, genetics, food processing and ingredients. 

KAZAKHSTAN – STRATEGIC LOCATION AND A ROOM FOR IMPROVEMENT 
The purpose of the delegation is to maximise your business opportunities and sales in a fast-growing agriculture-based country in the centre of Eurasia.

WHICH COMPANIES SHOULD ATTEND
Companies engaged in:

  • Agroindustry incl. genetics
  • Food processing technology
  • Food tech and ingredients

WHAT YOU GET

  • Full business program including visits to production sites of the most promising local companies including meeting with their management
  • Meetings with key political decision makers
  • Market knowledge and expanded networks

PLANNED VISITS

  • Visits to attractive producers including meeting with management. The visits will be divided into sector specific tracks maximizing relevance for each participant 
  • Meetings with key political decision makers

WHY KAZAKHSTAN
Kazakhstan is traditionally known as one of the world's largest grain supplying states with a large area of agricultural land and significant potential for development. 

In recent years, the government has actively supported the development of the sector, and the amount of subsidies both for livestock and crop production increases every year.

The location of Kazakhstan opens up great opportunities for the export of agricultural products to the countries of Central Asia and Middle East, which is an important factor for the development of production in the country.

Despite the positive dynamics of growth in recent years, agriculture still remains among the low-productivity sectors and needs new technologies. This opens up huge potential for cooperation with Danish companies in the agricultural sector.

NUR-SULTAN
Nur-Sultan and the Akmola region, being the capital, is also one of the most developed regions of the country in terms of agriculture. It is important for the development of agribusiness to have access to all public actors, which play a significant role in all spheres in Kazakhstan, and the capital region provides such an opportunity.

At a glance, Nur-Sultan is now:

  • the largest grain producer in the country
  • the 2nd largest region by acreage of forage crops
  • 3rd largest population of pigs 
  • the 2nd largest region by poultry population
  • 2nd largest egg producer
  • direct access to decision makers

ALMATY
Almaty is traditionally one of the most developed regions of Kazakhstan, especially in terms of agriculture.

At a glance, Almaty region is: 

  • the most developed region in terms of gross output of agricultural products (services)
  • 2nd region in the country by the number of agricultural enterprises
  • the largest egg producer in the country
  • 2nd largest cattle population keeper 
  • 3rd largest milk producer 
  • 3rd largest vegetable producer
  • the largest producer of feed for farm animals

Recently, China opened up for the supply of pork from Kazakhstan and this pushes the agrarians of Kazakhstan to develop also pork production. The regions bordering China, in particular, the traditionally well-developed Almaty region, received a particularly significant boost.
