WALNUT PROCESSING UZBEKISTAN
Creating a walnut processing facility in Uzbekistan for high-quality nuts
An Uzbek walnut cooperative was looking to export nuts and therefore needed a high-quality processing facility aligned with international standards. We provided and facilitated setting up all the machinery for washing, cracking, hulling, and drying walnuts to comply with food safety standards.
The system can dry 250.000 kilos of walnuts per season, giving farmers and nut collectors access to the market and improving local economic conditions.This project was commissioned by GIZ (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit, www.giz.de)
