Strawberries for Italy and Spain To Be Grown in Rivne Region

This spring, a Polish company TERRA-PLANT plans to plant the first strawberry seedlings in the Rivne region. The head of the Rivne Regional State Administration Vitaliy Koval and the director of the company TERRA-PLANT Pyotr Kachmarchyk have recently signed a Memorandum of Cooperation, writes “Agro-Center” with a reference to “Radio Track”.

TERRA-PLANT is one of the most successful companies in Poland. They export their products to Italy and Spain.

“The company is interested in developing its business in Ukraine. Negotiations began back in September. Ukrainian soil is suitable for growing the products they export. Besides strawberries, the company also grows raspberries and onions. To begin with, they are ready to lease more than 50 hectares of land,”

said Deputy Head of the Regional State Administration of the Rivne region Sergey Hemberg.

The preparation of documentation is in progress. And the first preparatory work will be done in spring.

According to Sergey, this project is informally called “The storks return home” because about 70 residents of the Rivne region are now working at the Polish enterprise.

Once the project is launched, people will be able to come back to Ukraine and work in their homeland.

The size of the investments has not been announced yet. Preference is given to land in Sarnensky, Berezovsky and Kostopil districts.
