As a result of initial agreements reached at the exhibition, contracts worth 1.2 million USD were concluded to export Azerbaijani products.
Thus, Azerbaijan’s Agro Norm LLC Company signed a 500 thousand USD contract with a Belorussian company and a 600 thousand USD contract with a Ukrainian chain of supermarkets to ensure the export of tomato products.
Furthermore, Ulduz Chocolate Factory LLC exported confectionery to the amount of 116 thousand USD under the contracts it concluded with companies from Jordan and Saudi Arabia.
