EFKO's Branded Products segment includes packaged vegetable oil of the "Sloboda", Altero and EFKO Food professional brands.
Our packaged oils are manufactured in Alekseevka (Belgorod Region). The production facilities are closely integrated with the Group's oil extraction complex, which enables us to enhance production effectiveness, optimize our costs, and ensure better quality of the end product. The total daily vegetable oil production capacity of the Group in Russia is up to 500 tons.
As well, in 1 July 2016 in Almaty under the national teleconference with the participation of President of Kazakhstan Nursultan Nazarbayev the launch of the line packaging of bottled vegetable oil was held at the plant LLP "EFKO ALMATY". Production plant is equipped with the advanced facilities and produces "Sloboda" and "Solnechny venetz" oil for both the domestic market of Kazakhstan and for export to nearby countries: Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Kyrgyzstan, Afghanistan and others.
To ensure its good consumer properties, the oil goes through a multi-stage refining process, eliminating any residues and impurities. We guarantee that our product is all-natural by using our proprietary quality management system Organic-Control, which ensures that the products are free from any artificial ingredients and meet the highest quality standards.
The refined oil is put in plastic bottles. The bottles are packaged in cardboard boxes and moved to a warehouse, from where they are shipped to our customers. The PET plastic bottles are blow-moulded locally, before the oil is bottled.
In 2016, the refined and deodorized sunflower oil and unrefined sunflower oil «Sloboda» were awarded with the State Quality Marks.
