São Paulo, October 22, 2018 – NovaProm and Natural Casings, two companies belonging to JBS Novos Negócios, will be making their first appearance as exhibitors at AGROPRODMASH 2018, which was held in Moscow, Russia, in October. The companies shared a stand where they showcased products and built closer ties with their customers.

Walter Lene, NovaProm director, noted that despite significant competition in Russia, it offers significant commercial opportunities for the Collagen and Ingredients division, which is why the decision was made to attend the event.

“NovaProm offers ingredients solutions for the food industry, which is precisely what the fair focuses on. Being here gives us the opportunity to build stronger relationships and strengthen our brand on the Russian market”, he said. NovaProm also took the opportunity to present its new visual identity, which was unveiled earlier this year.

Alexandre Lago, Natural Casings manager, explained that this was a significant chance to better understand the Russian market, one of the largest consumers of beef casings. “Natural Casings is one of the world’s biggest casings manufacturers. We need to be at an event of this importance to showcase our products, identify market trends and build closer ties with our customers”, he said. ​

Over 800 companies exhibited at AGROPRODMASH 2018, which attracted visitors from 60 countries.
