Madari Akos, Senior Export Advisor, Hepa Hungarian Export Promotion Agency

I am an official representative of the Hungarian National Export Promotion Agency. This is the first time we are at this exhibition and for the first time we are presenting Hungarian products at the stand. 15 companies have come with us, which will also present their best products at the exhibition. I think this shows our serious interest in the Kazakhstani market. We had very successful negotiations at the exhibition and concluded preliminary agreements. We are very pleased with the organization of the exhibition. I think that the Kazakhstani market is interested in the application of new technologies, new products, modern goods from Hungary. We have a very wide range of products, from alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, canned food, which were popular even in Soviet times and I think that now there is also a lot of interest in this. We have the highest quality and we would like our products to find their place in the local market. A lot of visitors were interested and I can say with confidence that most of the visitors of the exhibition gathered at our stand. We can be proud of this and will continue to expand, engage in marketing and expand ties with local entrepreneurs. We have a great interest in the Kazakhstani market, so we plan to participate in the exhibition next year. We will also consider the possibilities of participating in other exhibitions of your company.

Aidos Sultankulov, Sales Manager of Tsin-Kaz LLP

Our company is a domestic producer of tomato products, we mainly produce tomato paste, salads, sauces and other products. The exhibition was very cool for us, there were a lot of visitors in the pavilion who were interested in our assortment, as well as many companies that participate in the exhibition. Many of the guests were interested in cooperating with us, they managed to conclude agreements with someone, and some details need to be discussed with someone else. In 2025, we plan to participate in many exhibitions organized by your company. We saw great potential in the InterFood Astana exhibition, and we will make the final decision on participation next year a little later.

Dilyara Kerimova, Supervisor of SULTAN-MARKETING LLP

Our company has been known in the market for more than 25 years. We specialize in the production of pasta and confectionery, our factory is located in Petropavlovsk city. The impressions of participation in the exhibition were very positive. We met a lot of companies, made new acquaintances and got a lot of useful contacts. Our company is already large and has successful cooperation with various countries, but at the exhibition we also strive to attract new partners, including countries such as China. Our products have aroused considerable interest among many companies, and we have received many positive feedback about the demand and quality of our goods. These wishes and opinions confirm the correctness of our choice to participate in this event. We definitely plan to return to this exhibition next year, as it is an excellent platform for promoting our brand and expanding business ties. In addition, we are considering participating in other exhibitions in different cities in order to strengthen our market position and build up our international partnerships.

Eric Yafasov, Engineer, Rodals Kazakhstan LLP

Our company represents European plants, as well as Iranian and Turkish equipment manufacturers. We provide technical support on the territory of Kazakhstan, as well as the sale of products from the above-mentioned plants. The exhibition left a good impression, a large number of people visited our stand. There is a unique target audience and exactly what we were looking for. I think that a large number of applications that people have left will be transferred to long-term contracts in the future. We made some agreements at the exhibition, our potential customers left their requests and wishes, we work out everything at their request. I think that we will participate in the exhibition and increase our area, because the exhibition showed that the end user or customer is interested in looking at the equipment that is presented at our stand. Next year we will bring new products and present them. 


I represent a company that is the first innovative manufacturer of ready-made semi-finished products in Kazakhstan, located in the city of Kosshy, Akmola region. Participation in the InterFood Astana exhibition is a debut for us, since our production was launched just a month ago. We came here to express ourselves, present our product to the general public and find reliable partners for development in the Kazakhstan market. At the exhibition, we not only attracted the attention of our Kazakh partners, but also aroused the interest of foreign companies from the customs union and other countries. We have held many productive meetings and have already signed several contracts by sending commercial and price proposals. I am confident that the effectiveness of our negotiations will exceed more than 80%. Our plant has just begun its journey; we plan to actively develop both in terms of production volumes and product range.Тaking into account the positive experience at InterFood Astana, we intend to participate in this exhibition next year and also take part in FoodExpo in Almaty this year. These are events that help us not only strengthen our position in the market, but also expand the geography of our business contacts.


Veronika Talaban, Specialist, Chelyabinsk Region Export Support Center:

This is the first time we are taking part in the InterFood Astana exhibition. We really like it. We brought eight companies with different products. These are drinks, micro greens, packaging and food products. Our products are unique because they are made of natural ingredients, we are set and aim to supply it to the Kazakhstani market. We are first of all interested in the local market. We are very happy with this exhibition, there are companies from many countries: Uzbekistan, Vietnam, Armenia, all the countries we regularly cooperate with and want to maintain relations in the future. The exhibition is interesting with its interactives, interviews, various B2B meetings. Everything is great, the organization is perfect. Thank you very much!

Alexandra Averyanova, Export Director, EcoNiva:

EcoNiva is the number one company in the production of raw cow`s milk. We are located in Russia, Voronezh region. We brought milk and cheese to the InterFood Astana exhibition for tasting, to introduce them to the natives of Kazakhstan. We hope for long-term and fruitful cooperation with them. Yesterday was a great day, we had a lot of visitors, and we got great and qualitative feedback on our products. Everyone was delighted with our milk. Earlier, about six months ago, we participated in the HorexExpo Qazaqstan exhibition in Almaty. Thanks to it we have very many contacts and we subsequently concluded contracts.

Alexei Sorokin, International Business Development Manager, Fitness Food LLC:

I am very pleased to be here and represent our company at InterFood Astana. I was surprised by the fact that, despite the small size of the exhibition hall, there is a very intensive flow of visitors, and specifically targeted ones, who are interested in cooperation and finding partners. We have entered in more than 30 contacts in the last day and conducted a great number of negotiations. We see great interest in our products from Kazakhstani part, from chains, distributors and wholesale clients. Besides, it turned out to be very useful that Astana is geographically convenient for visiting all our potential and existing partners from Northern and Central Kazakhstan. Since not everyone can come to Almaty, many came to Astana. Here we saw that the potential of our product is very big, we did not expect so much interest. Thanks to events like this, our brand and production becomes better known, and we have a better opportunity to talk about their distinctive qualities and useful properties, and about our potential for cooperation. I would like to wish for the future that such events would continue, that they would be more widely covered in the media, for an even greater flow of targeted visitors, that the results of this exhibition would turn into successful contracts, and that the representation of our products on the Kazakhstani market would increase.

Kristina Schastnaya, Export Manager, MICROWORLD:

We came to Astana for the InterFood Astana exhibition with our amazing product - microgreens. The microgreen growing kit is very interesting, which is now a trend all over the world. Organic, clean, amazing greens that contain vitamins and minerals! We are incredibly impressed by the activity of buyers and distributors who are interested in such a useful product. We are very happy with the organization of the exhibition, everything was done in time. It was beautiful, interesting and we were delighted with the negotiations. We hope that our product will soon appear in the Kazakhstani market.

Olga Denisenko, Leading Specialist of Exhibition Management, BELINTEREXPO:

This is not the first year we participate in the food exhibition InterFood Astana. The national stand of the Republic of Belarus this year includes 4 enterprises. They are three meat processing plants from Grodno, Slonim and Volkovysk and a confectionery factory. Yesterday, Pavel Utyupin, Ambassador of the Republic of Belarus to Kazakhstan, visited our stand and the exhibition. Today we are expecting visits from trade networks, business representatives and distributors to conclude contracts and deals, because that is what the stands are built for. We hope there will be demand and that we will get profitable partnerships and contracts. I would like to express special gratitude to the organizers of our stand for holding this exhibition and organizing additional events for our participants. I hope that it will not be the last time we cooperate with you and that we will come back next year to participate in the exhibition.

Alexander Volkov, Leading Sales Manager, LEBO Professional:

We represent our company at InterFood Astana for the first time, we are very happy to attend this event. We want to introduce our brand to the Kazakhstani market. We have two directions – retail and HoReCa, respectively, we want to get a positive feedback on our product here, and we already get it from visitors who have tried our coffee. We also want to find good partners, so that in the future people will drink our wonderful coffee.  

Vasiliy Tokmakov, Commercial Director, RAIM FOOD LLP:

Our company participates in exhibitions all the time. The trend is that such events provide an opportunity to find clients and new business partners. Yesterday we talked to the participants that the exhibition is a meeting point for clients and sellers. We felt uplifted after the exhibition in Almaty in November 2022. Accordingly, we try not to miss it, that is why we are here. Based on the results of InterFood Astana, we already have partners, new developments, suppliers, and new packages. I think it is great when everyone you need meets in one place. 

Vahagn Gevorkian , Director, Gevorkian Winery LLC:

This is our first time in Kazakhstan, our first time participating in InterFood Astana.  It is a great pleasure to be in your country and in Astana.  We see very great potential for the sale of our wines on your territory. I would like to add that the exhibition is successful and productive. We have already gathered 15-20 contacts, it is 99% that we will sign contracts with them, and we are planning further general distributors and sales. We hope that next year this exhibition will also be held and we will take part in it.

Tatyana Mizyurina, Director General, KREMLIN AWARD:

We represent our company and our products in your market, in Kazakhstan. This is Kremlin Award vodka. We supply vodka to India, China, the UAE, we used to supply to all European Union countries and to America. Our impression of the exhibition: the InterFood Astana exhibition is small, but behind the scenes, everyone is friendly, exchanging experiences and opinions, trying and testing each other's products. Kazakhstan met us very well. Thank you!

Armen Zakaryan, Commercial Director, Yerevan Ararat Brandy-Wine-Vodka Factory LLC:

At InterFood Astana 2023, we are presenting our plant's products. In general, the exhibition is very productive, we have already had a valid contract in Kazakhstan, and the first batch of our products entered the Kazakhstani market. The aim of participating in this exhibition is to present our product in a new way, to introduce our high-quality products to Kazakhstani clients, so that our products will be presented more widely in Kazakhstan. 


Sabrina Regolo, CEO M.I.N.E. –Business Consulting s.r.l.s.

I take part in the Interfood Astana exhibition together with partners with whom we have been working for a long time. For us and our partners, this is the first participation, but not the last. The InterFood Astana exhibition is a kind of "Welcome to Kazakhstan" showcase for us. I really liked the reaction from the people who came and tasted our products. Their positive reaction says that, firstly, our products are good, and secondly, the market of Kazakhstan can accept completely different, new tastes. We want to take part in the next exhibition in Almaty, which will be held in November. Therefore, you will hear more about us. I am very happy about our participation and the opportunity to be in Kazakhstan.

Bessonov Stanislav, Deputy Director for Commercial Affairs of Technostyle

The InterFood Astana exhibition turned out to be quite unpredictable for us, in a good sense of the word. We are here for the first time and we are presenting our products on the market of Kazakhstan for the first time. This is an indescribable feeling. We already have a major contract concluded, almost all the distribution products have ended. We will continue to work here. The audience showed great interest in our products, which gave even more inspiration and a positive effect from participation.

Polukhin Vladimir, distribution manager "Trapeza"

Our company is a manufacturer of spices and seasonings from Novosibirsk. Throughout Russia, we actively participate in exhibitions for a long time, every year we take part in an exhibition in Moscow. We came to InterFood Astana for the first time. We are very glad to participate. According to my impressions, we managed to hold B2B negotiations with all the declared participants, today we are waiting for a number of important meetings. There are preliminary agreements on cooperation in the market of Kazakhstan. I am glad that among the visitors there were specialized organizations, large buyers. We duly announced our products, told them, gave them a try, so we believe that we definitely did not go in vain. We recommend everyone to take part in the InterFood Astana exhibition and expand the horizons of their work.

Kirdun Elena, marketer of the Minsk Soft Drinks Factory

During three productive days, we were able to introduce everyone to the products of our factory. We focused on our unique drinks – birch juice and fruit drinks. Potential buyers highlighted that this is a unique drink that is useful to detox the body. The exhibition turned out to be very productive, we found potential distributors, partners with whom we hope to conclude agreements and contracts. Therefore, upon returning to the Republic of Belarus, we will work through all the contacts we have received and choose the best option for both a potential partner and for us. Soon, we hope, you will be able to buy our wonderful products at your market. All this is thanks to the InterFood Astana exhibition.
