The Exhibition

AgroExpo Uzbekistan/Agrotech Expo, the leading trade fair for agriculture and the food industry in Uzbekistan, will take place again at the Uzexpocentre site in Tashkent from November 27th to 29th, 2024. The trade fair is an excellent platform for foreign manufacturers to get in touch with buyers from Uzbekistan.

In 2023, over 180 companies from China, Germany, Estonia, Finland, France, Hungary, Italy, India, Iran, Latvia, the Netherlands, Poland, Spain, Turkey, Uzbekistan and other countries presented their products to around 4,000 visitors. As part of the exhibition, an international conference was organized with renowned experts on various animal husbandry topics.

The Market

With around 32 million people, Uzbekistan is the mostly populated country in Central Asia. Therefore, providing a continuous food security to its population through the sustainable development of agriculture remains a strategically important issue for Uzbekistan’s government.

Uzbekistan’s economy is heavily influenced by agriculture. Agricultural production represents 27.3 percent of gross domestic product (2020). The sector employs 3.7 million people, or 27 percent of all employed people.

Due to the climatic conditions, as much as 85% of Uzbekistan’s agricultural land is irrigated. The most important crops are cotton and wheat, and significant other products include fruits (apples, apricots, peaches and berries), vegetables (cucumbers, tomatoes and potatoes), milk, silk and livestock. The production of raw cotton, a traditionally principal agricultural product, has been substantially reduced, which freed up around 170,500 hectares of land. This land will primarily be used to sow potato and other vegetables, forage crops for feed production as well as horticulture crops.

Currently Uzbekistan produces around 16 million tons of fruits and vegetables, the volume of which is expected to increase to 5 million tons by 2030. Nevertheless, only 15% of fruits and vegetables is processed in Uzbekistan, which entails a high degree of wastage and price fluctuations during on- and off- seasons. Furthermore, the capacity of refrigerated warehouses, which is estimated to be around 800,000 tons, needs to be increased because it is enough to only store 5% of the national harvest. The demand for modern machinery, processing equipment and cooling technologies is, therefore, growing as the government aims to increase the efficiency of agricultural products.

Animal husbandry encompasses 40% of the total output of agriculture. During the last five years, livestock has increased by 21% including cattle by 7%, sheep and goats be 20% and poultry 1.5 times. Today, almost 95% of livestock (or 10 million) is brought up in private smallholding and commercial farms. They produce more than 90% of the country’s meat, 95.7% of milk and 54.8% of eggs. The number of breeding farms has exceeded 400, and they currently raise 99,200 heads of livestock.
