2 Plants in the Mykolaiv Region Have Resumed Production

"PepsiCo Ukraine" and “Agrofusion” have restarted production, stopped due to the war

The head of the Mykolaiv regional military administration, Vitaly Kim, announced the restoration of 2 robust plants for the production of food products and non-alcoholic beverages in the territory of the Mykolaiv region. This is a positive signal, as this region has been under constant fire from Russian missiles for a long time.

The first plant PepsiCo Ukraine: fruit processing and production of soft drinks. The second is the internationally known plant for tomato processing and production of tomato products Agrofusion. It is known that Agrofusion also plans to resume production and further export in the Kherson region.

"That's why business is not afraid either, it works and recovers, but we would like it to happen faster," Vitaly Kim.

Currently, entrepreneurs face a large-scale task: the restoration of production facilities damaged by the war and adaptation to work in the territories still mined.

"The south of Ukraine is the territory with the most mines in the world. As for the Mykolaiv region, 10% of the territory of the region, 270.000 ha, needs to be demined or surveyed for the presence of mines. Because of this, it is tough for a business to plan anything, part of the business has been destroyed, part has been relocated, and it is necessary time and conditions, including from the lending side, for a business to recover," Vitaly Kim.

PepsiCo launched 5 factories in the Mykolaiv region, the Kharkiv dairy plant in Ukraine, the Kyiv dairy plant and the baby food manufacturing plant.

We remind you that Coca-Cola donated $1.1 million to restore a kindergarten destroyed by the war, where the CC plant has been operating for 25 years.
