Welcome to a factory in Astrakhan that produces qualitative canned vegetables without preservatives and colorants. Only salt, sugar and vinegar are widely used.
In Soviet times people enjoyed eating healthy food. We didn’t have very large companies that had to use preservatives and other additives to deliver their products throughout the whole country because there were factories in every region. All the products were sold out immediately. Soviet people came to know about preservatives after the fall of the country.
Products are cleaned before heat treatment.
