New Standards for Dairy Products Being Drafted in Azerbaijan

11 May 2018

AZERBAIJAN - Azerbaijan's Association of Producers and Exporters of Milk and Dairy Products (ASEB) plans to introduce new standards for these products in the country, ASEB Executive Director Samir Eyyubov said at a meeting of the Association participants in Baku today, 11 May.

"Azerbaijan needs to promote such a concept as "farm milk". That is milk and dairy products manufactured in compliance with the necessary standards. Special logos should be on packages of finished products for this end," he said.

According to Trend News Agency, Mr Eyyubov said a number of marketing activities are being developed to promote such products in the Azerbaijani market.

"We need to use all available media platforms for this. Particularly, the work on our website will be completed by late this month, and we seek to manufacture competitive products that should be sold in domestic market and directed for export," Mr Eyyubov said.

ASEB was established on 26 January 2018. Currently, it unites 20 companies, and talks underway with new companies.
