Nut Factory

The factory is a food industry enterprise destined for production of roasted nuts and seed packaged in plastic bags, weighing from 100 g to 5 kg, for the further sale to retail and wholesale networks.
Raw materials for the production are nuts from the USA – peanut, pistachio and almond. Sunflower seeds from the Ukraine and Russia. The company also expects to collect extra revenue from the wholesale trade of raw nuts and dried fruits, packed in bags from 100 g to 1 kg.


From 2008 till 2012 STARTFRUKT gained experience in the supply of nuts and dried fruits to Belarus from abroad. Our company has thoroughly examined customs legislation on import of nuts and dried fruits. During this time, STARTFRUKT had positive experience of working with Belarusian customs authorities.

STARTFRUKT has completed 38 international contracts on delivery of nuts and dried fruits.The goods were delivered from manufacturers in Chile, China, Turkey, Thailand, Iran.


Owing to the import restriction of peanut, pistachio and almond from USA to Russia, STARTFRUKT has an opportunity to enter the market and take its share. Belarus has not imposed restrictions on import of raw peanut, pistachio, almond from the USA; therefore, our company has no limitations to import them. After being roasted at our factory, peanut, pistachio and almond can be exported to Russia, as they have already become Belarusian products. The same actions can be done with any other embargoed product. STARTFRUKT’s management has great experience of working in this industry and the ties with suppliers and market.
