Implementation period
  • To construct a centralized site in Berezhany and install sheds for acceptance of berries (raspberries, strawberries), reloading berries into the technical room and transfer to the pre-cooling chamber (up to t = + 2℃), shock freezing chamber (up to t = -35℃) and subsequent storage chambers at t = -18℃. The centralized site will have a 96 m3 cooling chamber, a 96 m3 shock freezing chamber, and a 475 m3 storage chamber;
  • To construct three cooling chambers (up to t = + 2℃, 96 m3 each) in three rural settlements (villages of Kuropatnyky, Nadrichne, and Saranchuky, Berezhany rayon) to store products for further safe transportation to the consumer or a centralized collection point for shock freezing and subsequent storage.
Based on the project results, gross berry production is expected to reach 280 tons per season.
