This was announced by Vice Governor Andrey Korobka following the results of participation in the XIV Congress of the National Union of Milk Producers in Moscow.
Russian Minister of Agriculture Dmitry Patrushev noted that according to preliminary data, the volume of raw milk production in 2022 amounted to 32.6 million tons. This result became possible due to comprehensive state support and improvement of the production process. Speaking about the prospects for 2023, Dmitry Patrushev noted that the department expects to maintain positive dynamics both in raw milk and in processing.
The Vice Governor stressed that the Krasnodar Territory traditionally makes a significant contribution to the all-Russian production of milk and dairy products.
– Last year, according to preliminary data, the region increased the volume of milk production from 1.5 million tons to 1.6 million tons. This result became possible due to the increase in the number of dairy herds, the replacement of low-productive livestock of cows with highly productive ones, the improvement of cattle, as well as systemic state support, – emphasized Deputy Andrei Korobka.
Andrey Korobka added that the positive dynamics gives confidence that by 2030 the indicators of the Strategy for the socio-economic development of the Krasnodar Territory will be achieved.
– By 2030, the region should receive at least 2.1 million tons of milk annually. The plan for 2023 is 1.6 million tons. Thanks to the colossal work that is being done in the livestock sector, there are all prerequisites that we will reach this indicator,” said the vice-governor.
