The largest sector in Tajikistan food industry is milling (please see 2.7 Tajikistan Milling Assessment).
Food processing has been expanding after a near collapse following the withdrawal of Soviet subsidies at independence. A large modern oilseed crushing plant is being built in Spitamen, Sugd province with capacity to crush 150 mt per day of sunflower seeds, soybeans and cotton seeds in three separate lines of 50 mt per day. There has been much investment in dairy facilities and packaged milk and yoghurt is now widely available.
Some companies like the Makolli and Makvolli have the necessary blending equipment to produce Unimix (CSB) or wheat soya blend. However, as of 2014 there was no production of nutritional products such as Ready to Eat (Ready to Eat), CSB or WSB.
There are strict food standards in the country, led by the Food Standards Organization.
