15:09, 12 August

During his visit to Minsk Dairy Plant No. 1 Belarusian President Aleksandr Lukashenko gave an instruction to set up production of food packaging in Belarus by the end of the year, BelTA has learned.

“This packaging material should be produced domestically. The production of packaging should be launched by the end of the year. How come we cannot produce this plastic having a super-developed chemical industry?” Aleksandr Lukashenko noted.

Packaging material for some types of products, such as milk, was purchased from abroad. It has become more difficult to do it recently, and this affected product supplies to the domestic market.

The head of state recalled that import substitution tasks have been set for several years already. Agriculture and Food Minister Igor Brylo will be in charge of launching the production of food packaging, while Deputy Prime Minister Leonid Zaits will oversee this matter.
