A large logistics investment project was implemented in the Novosibirsk Region.

A logistics center for the largest retail chain of the Russian Federation was opened here. According to local officials, the “Magnit” company, actively developing in the territory of the Novosibirsk region and neighboring regions, gives an impetus to the development of local producers – first of all, agricultural producers and processors.

The cooperation of the network with regional suppliers was also discussed at a working meeting held after the ceremony of the ceremonial launch of the facility, writes the Ministry of Agriculture of the Russian Federation.

The Minister of Agriculture of the Novosibirsk Region, Evgeny Leshchenko, stressed that the agro-industrial complex of the region is now one of the largest in the country.

“In the first eight months of 2020 alone, the volume of self-produced food products shipped in the region exceeded 100 billion rubles. Food products were produced by 8% more than in the same period last year, drinks – by 7%. And this is far from the limit. At present, a number of large investment projects in the agro-industrial complex are being implemented in the region, with a total investment of over 60 billion rubles. The launch of these facilities will also significantly increase the volume of food production in the region, the minister said. “In addition, our existing converters now have a large reserve of free, idle production capacities. In some branches of the agro-industrial complex, it reaches 43%. They are ready to increase the output of products, adjust them to the tastes of the consumer, expand the assortment – the main thing is that the demand allows it, the capacity of the sales markets allows. We are extremely interested in expanding cooperation with the Magnit trading network and in expanding our goods through this trading network to other regions of the country. “

In turn, Magnit confirmed that the network gives preference to local producers. Over the past two years, the share of locally produced products on the shelves of the Novosibirsk region has more than doubled: from 14 to 32%. In the future, the retailer plans to increase this share even more, as well as more actively supply products manufactured in the NSO to stores in neighboring regions.
