ECO-Culture Holding took part in the Agrorus-2020 XXIX International Agricultural Exhibition. The exposition displayed products grown in the Kruglyi God (“All Year Round”) greenhouse complex. The enterprise is located in the Leningrad Oblast and is a part of the agricultural holding. The main crops cultivated here are lettuce, cucumbers, and tomatoes. Advanced intensive and environmentally friendly cultivation technologies similar to those used in Finland and other Nordic countries have been introduced into the production process.
The exhibition was held from 2 to 6 September in St. Petersburg, in the Expoforum exhibition center. It is the largest exhibition platform in the country, where hundreds of agricultural enterprises annually demonstrate the best products and production technologies of the industry. Not only do the participants demonstrate their achievements but they also share their experience, discussing the prospects of the industry development and ways for the current problems to be solved.
Almost all regions of Russia and about 20 foreign countries demonstrated their products at the Agrorus exhibition. Representatives of retail chains, the HoReCa sector, and producers had an opportunity to establish new contacts and conclude long-term agreements with the clients as part of the “Network and retail purchases” program.
The products of the Kruglyi God complex were shown at the stand of the Boksitogorsky District. It is here, in the city of Pikalyovo, that the greenhouse complex with the total area of 7 hectares is located.
The official opening ceremony was headed by Alexander Drozdenko, the Governor of the Leningrad Oblast. The event was also attended by Olga Gatagova (the Deputy Minister of Agriculture of the Russian Federation), Sergey Bebenin (the Chairman of the Regional Legislative Assembly), along with other regional and federal government representatives.
The exhibition was the first event of this scale after the global pandemic. It became not only a celebration of the harvest but also an opportunity for live communication between people working in the most important industry for our country. The event showed that most farms have survived these difficult months and are ready for further development in new conditions.
Together with the exhibition, the Agrorus fair was held, where producers were offered a chance to sell their products. Every year, the marketplace is visited by over 90 thousand citizens and guests of the city.
