According to the press service of the Kuban Ministryagriculture and processing industry, wholesale distribution centers will begin to accept for storage and further distribution the vegetables grown on the Kuban, fruit and berries. This measure, according to the same press service, is necessary, as regional producers are increasing their yields year by year.

To this end, representatives of the regional Ministry of Agriculturehave already visited Astrakhan Oblast on a fact-finding visit, whose authorities have been engaged in the construction of such facilities for several years. So, for the period since 2010, in the region it was possible to build about thirty modern vegetable stores and five distribution centers that can take almost 150 thousand tons of various crop production at a time.

Such a measure allowed Astrakhan farmerscreate new jobs and increase production. Subsequently, the regional authorities will continue to provide active assistance to the agrarians of the Krasnodar Territory in the implementation of the import substitution program, which is now very important for the well-being and saturation of the Russian food market.

"We are glad that the state has finally turned tous attention. Previously, we in our own country and in our own region were on the rights of poor relatives - little subsidies, heavy competition and no preferences, unlike import suppliers. I am very pleased with the introduction of restrictions on supplies from Europe and, if a referendum is held, I will speak only for their extension, "said Georgy Kvatselia, owner of a small horticultural farm in the Kuban.
