Establishment of the Volokonovsky canning plant
The Volokonovsky canning plant is a famous enterprise that boasts the production of high-quality condensed milk. The plant we love produced the first batch of whole condensed milk with sugar in October 1957.
Since the early days of its operation, the condensed milk has been made at our plant especially tasty, having the smell of fresh milk, being soft, dense and very rich.
Ask any Belgoroder about condensed milk and they will say that the best is only ours, the VOLOKONOVSKOE milk. The plant produced the highest quality products and they were known and valued across the entire country and they were also ordered for the country’s top leadership. In general, the plant has got its loud and proud records.
