In compliance with the presidential decree, the Association of fat-and-oil industry enterprises (“Uzyogmoysanoat”) will be created on the basis of “Uzpakhtayog”.

This, in turn, leads to the inefficiency of the oil-and-fat industry enterprises with state participation and reduction of their competitiveness.
“The actual situation in the industry indicates problems associated with the lack of a unified management system for the oil-and-fat industry, ineffective product quality control mechanisms which negatively affect the introduction of advanced technologies, attracting investment and development of the industry as a whole,” the document says.

Main objectives of the association are development of a strategy for the improvement of the oil-and-fat industry as a single complex for the processing of oilseeds, production of oil and fat products, organization of marketing research in domestic and foreign markets, as well as much more things.
