In September 2022, Agro Kush LLC, with the support of USAID’s Future Growth Initiative, received a certificate of compliance with the requirements of the Food Safety System Certification 22000. Agro Kush is the largest and only industrial-scale poultry farm in the Kyrgyz Republic. It provides the full production cycle: from the incubation of eggs to the delivery of finished products to the consumer. FSSC 22000 is one of the most advanced, ISO-based, food certification schemes in the world today. It is recognized by the Global Food Safety Initiative, major brands, and retail chains.
USAID supports locally owned and operated companies in their efforts to match international standards of quality and control, a necessary prerequisite for exporting food.
