Today 96% of food products in Uzbekistan are produced domestically

Uzbekistan focused on the provision of food security among other priorities yet at the dawn of its independence. The strategic goal was successfully achieved in 20 years. In 1990, the population’s need for food, meat, aairy and confectionery products was almost entirely met by imports, while today 96% of food products are produced domestically.

Today, food companies in Uzbekistan produce more than 3,000 various items of foods. Moreover, the list is annually updated by about 80 new domestically produced foods. In order to ensure quality, 363 food companies have introduced IS0-9001 international quality standards and ISO-22000 international quality standards for finished product safety.

In the years since independence, per capita meat consumption has increased 1.3 times, milk and dairy products 1.6 times, and processed fruit and vegetables almost four times. Since the beginning of the current year, the industry’s enterprises have drawn $46.23 million in investments and manufactured products to the tune of 10.1 trillion soums, 16.5 percent up from last year. As many as 1,005 new investment projects worth 291.7 billion soums have been implemented in the industry, thus creating 9,836 new jobs (currency rates of CB RU from 18.11.2015   1$= 2721.12 soums).

Today, the national food industry is facing new tasks and challenges. Changes in the global food market and the resultant price fluctuations cause serious imbalance in global production, and definitely affect the situation in the domestic market. There is therefore a need to intensify efforts to create capacities on the production of food additives and food chemistry, and ratchet up the production of confectioneries.

Bolshoi Theater of Uzbekistan opens its doors after years of reconstruction

A majestic concert program has become adornment for the opening of the 86th theater season of the State academic Bolshoi theatre named after Alisher Navoi. After three years of renovation, the fans of high art were able to see the Bolshoi in all its splendor. This event can rightly be called the main in the cultural life of the country this year.

Although the concert was scheduled for 5 o’clock, the spectators began to gather long before this time. They came with families, friends, couples. They said that they were anxious to see the theater after restoration. And, of course, everyone was waiting for something extraordinary and magical.

– I have long waited for this event, and finally, it happened. Today we are waiting for a miracle. After the opening of the theater, I think the theatrical life of the country will become even more interesting. I hope that the artists in this season will present many new performances that we as an audience will be happy to attend, – Namuna Irgasheva.

The opening of the theater has long been awaited not only by the audience, but also by the performers of the theatre who had no opportunity to perform at their home stage for 3 years. While guests were looking for their seats and examining with interest the restored interior of the hall, we managed to get backstage and talk with the artists.

– Participating in a festive concert dedicated to the opening of the State academic Bolshoi theatre is one of the exciting moments in my life. I’m very excited, but I think that today all will pass perfectly well, – said the soloist of the ballet troupe of the Bolshoi theatre Madina Yusupova.

Finally, after the last third ring sounded, the curtain went up. The theatre has prepared a program that included excerpts from the best international and domestic works. Here you could enjoy the Stretta Manrico from the Opera “Il Trovatore” by Giuseppe Verdi, “Waltz of the flowers” from the ballet “Sleeping beauty” by Tchaikovsky, Uzbek folk song “Kashmirda” to the music of Mukhtor Ashrafi.

The audience literally traveled in time and space. They found themselves in Samarkand in the times of great Ulugbek, in medieval Germany, where a crafty Mephistopheles sings the verses on the eternal idol.

The artists of the theater in this evening showed the most favorites. It was impossible to choose the best, because all of the performances were so exciting.  Meanwhile one thing is clear, the Bolshoi theater itself performed the title role brilliantly. Today, all the applause are in honor of its performance.
