KOKSHETAU, KAZAKHSTAN — Agrimer-Astyk, a Kazakhstan-based company, has chosen Ocrim to design and build a durum wheat milling plant. It will produce organic semolina and has a capacity of 200 T/24h. The facility is scheduled to be tested in May.

“For our company, offering an organic, safe and fully traceable product is a duty,” said Tair Batalov, chief executive officer of Agrimer-Astyk. “Our customers and, in general, consumers are our first interlocutors. We relied on Ocrim to build our plant, because we want to be sure that organic semolina is of high and guaranteed quality. We therefore considered it a duty to choose a partner, such as Ocrim, who had our own point of view and modus operandi.”

Agrimer-Astyk noted Ocrim’s attention and awareness of organic product played a role in selecting them to build the mill.

“For Ocrim it is an honor to work for the first time with Agrimer-Astyk, and not just because it's a new customer,” said Alberto Antolini, CEO of Ocrim. “What makes me and, in general, Ocrim, proud concerns the concept of the supply chain, and so traceability and certainty of the high quality of the product. Being chosen by a new customer like Agrimer-Astyk gives us the complete certainty of having made the right choices a few years ago, when we embarked on the path that has led us to the Italian agri-food chain choice.”
