Ashtarak Kat CJSC welcomes the Armenian Government's steps aimed at
establishing state control over milk and cheese production quality
in Armenia, the company's press release says.

Such an approach meets first of all the consumers' interests,
contributes to growth of the local production quality and development
of export. The quality growth will allow forming the brand "Armenian
cheese". Ashtarak Kar assures that the most important principle of
the company's development strategy is to ensure high quality of the
whole production.

The company says that all the production shops, as well as the milk
reception points are equipped with up- to-date laboratory facilities.

If the milk does not comply with the company's requirements, it is
not received. The reception points have refrigerating units to keep
the milk fresh and preserve its qualities.

The cheese of Ashtarak Kat company has occupied a worthy position in
both domestic market of Armenia and foreign markets. This is proved by
the fact that at the recent international exhibition ProdExpo 2011 in
Moscow, where 2000 participants from 55 countries took part, the cheese
"Lori" produced by Ashtarak Kat was awarded "the best product of 2011".

To recall, at the recent sitting of the Armenian Government, Armenian
Premier Tigran Sargsyan said that Armenian cheese is dangerous for
health and the cheese production causes the Government's concern. The
premier promised to toughen the control over the cheese production.
