Facts

Krasnodarzernoprodukt was registered as a Joint Stock Company in 1993, but its heritage as a legal entity started as far back as in 1932. Initially warehouses for grain collected from deliverers were erected. They were located exactly in place where present production facilities are situated. Intake and storage of grain have been the principal company activity for many years. Later production of wheat flour and cereals (semolina and rice cereal) were introduced. Here are some important stages of the company evolution:

  • 1970 – Flour Mill was built with 245 ton/day capacity for wheat flour production of 3 grades. Several important up-grades have been undertaken since the mill was commissioned.
  • 1990 –1995 - New equipment was installed in grain cleaning department. It resulted in production lines capacity increase, followed by maximum machinery efficiency.
  • 2006 – Grain cleaning department underwent automation up-grade, process administration from the central control panel was introduced.
  • In collaboration with grain processing department of Kuban State Technical University the decision was taken to equip grain cleaning facility of the mill with photo-electronic separators – machines able to extract impurities by color. Photo separator scans the grain flow with its optical "eye" and allows prompt and efficient separation of quality wheat from impurities and rejects damaged grains. The efficiency of grain cleaning reaches 97-99%.
  • Milling department has undergone up-grade which increased its capacity up to 330 ton/day. The changes affected the process flow. Depending on quality and range of the products produced, flour feed regulation in the blending screws was introduced; flour control - on seven sieving sections.
  • 2010 - Rice processing plant was commissioned.
  • 2012 - In view of Russia’s accession in WTO rice processing plant underwent up-grade aimed to improve the process flow, to increase product diversity, to secure production of goods conforming to European and world standards.
  • In the near future KZP plans to source construction of power plant for incineration of rice husk.
