LPR food industry doubles sales since January 2016
LPR food industry enterprises doubled their sales in the first nine months of 2016 year-on-year, the Republic’s acting Ministry of Industry and trade Dmitry Bozhic told a news briefing at Lugansk Media Centre on Thursday.
“Our food industry is showing positive dynamics despite the problems of reorientation to new raw materials markets and supplies therefrom. We believe that the next year we’ll consider new destinations outside the Lugansk People’s Republic and the Donetsk People’s Republic and elsewhere,” he noted.
The industry paid three times more taxes than in 2015, Bozhic said.
The official noted an increase in sales of meat, groats and macaroni products.
