Moscow To Get Food Wholesale Market
01.02.2014  Moscow International

A model of a giant food market was presented at the "Golden Autumn" Agricultural Exhibition at the All-Russia Exhibition Centre – within the information zone of the exhibition of Moscow. This is one of the three projects generated by the city focusing on an agro-industrial cluster that will accommodate the wholesale arrival of fresh products to the capital. Such complexes are based on the RUNGIS French hypermarkets, appearing to the north, west and south of the capital.

"Moscow is one of the largest consumers foodstuffs," said the head of the Department of Trade and Services, Alex Nemeryuk. "Each year, Muscovites consume more than 12 million tons of food, and 4,000,000 of this volume can be attributed to fresh farm produce. Unfortunately, the existing infrastructure of wholesale trade in food does not meet the requirements of international standards. Today we have a major problem – it is logistics, that is, delivery of fresh produce from the producer to the end consumer. In connection with this, the option of creating an agro-industrial cluster was brought to the table, which would ensure the supply of fresh produce to the capital: meat, dairy, vegetables, gastronomy, fish. About 100 sites were considered. Up to now, three of them have remained – to the north, south and west of the city. There is a need to create an area of 700 thousand square meters of warehouse and industrial premises, and this will include the agro-cluster."

The largest wholesale and logistics centre, an area of 440,000 square meters, will be located between the Varshavskoe and Kalugskoe shosse, another complex in the Western direction: Borovskoe highway – Marushkino, and the third has been identified in the north – Leningradskoe highway, Molzhaninovo district.

The clusters will operate on the basis of the French RUNGIS centre, that is around the clock: delivery of products is carried out during the evening, at night they are allotted in the warehouse and orders are formed so that customers are able to pick what they wish up in the morning. This mode of operation provides another doubtless plus: it will lessen the burden on the nearby highway to the cluster, and thus reduce the transportation burden on Moscow roads.
