The Joint-Stock company "Alfa-Nistru" is a dynamically working company, which proved to be reliable partner in the world of business.
The Joint-Stock company "Alfa-Nistru" was founded in 1962 after the food factory "Soroka cannery" had been reorganized. Production of fruit and vegetable preserves has always been the main field of company's activity. The enterprise started from a canning workshop.
In 1982, the aseptic processing and packaging workshop, targeted at processing of fruit juices and storing under aseptic conditions, was put in commission.
In 1993, the construction of bottling workshop for "Tetra-Pak" packing was completed. The same year the enterprise was privatized and reorganized as the JSC "Alfa-Nistru". The private property owned by the company made up 100 %, which also made for company's success.
At the very beginning the production volume of Soroca cannery was 2 mil. conventional cans. In the course of development the company increased its working area, upgraded its equipment, and updated package design with the one complying with European standards. Nowadays, the production capacity of JSC "Alfa-Nistru" has reached 100 000 tons of fruit and vegetable raw material.
When the national economy started to improve, the JSC "Alfa-Nistru" managed to increase its production capacity, extend its marketing outlets and improve its financial and economic indices due to the proper organization of the company. Being internationally oriented, the enterprise was one of the leading companies influencing the reorganization of the national economy. In order to successfully enter the foreign markets, in 1992-2001, we enlarged the range of goods and purchased such highly productive equipment as:
Swiss presses "Bucher", the output being 8 ton/hour each;
Juice concentrating equipment "Unipektin", (Switzerland), the output being 5 tons of concentrated juice per hour;
Juice production line - "Tetra-Pak" packaging (Sweden);
Closing equipment for "Twist-off" cans (Italy);
Jam production lines (Italy);
Modern autoclaves (Germany);
Green peas production lines (Germany);
Efficient production lines of canned corn (USA).
We gave highest priority to automating the process of production, which improved working environment and increased labour productivity. New technologies and equipment led to automating of all industrial processes, which changed the enterprise's looks.
In 1997, the company rented 200 hectares of land to start a nursery for breeding virus-free saplings of fruit trees and sprouts of highly productive kinds of raspberry, strawberry, and currants. In 1998-2001 the area of rented lands raised up to 2500 hectares. The enterprise allocated 6.2 hectares of land area to plant a high-intensity apple garden, which would be later be enlarged to 300 hectares.
In 1998, the JSC "Alfa-Nistru", assisted by Citizens Network for Foreign Affairs, organized the Farmers' Service Center to provide services in ploughing, sowing, harvesting, cultivation and spraying the private lots of land. The center also provides farmers with planting stock, seeds and renders consulting and laboratory services.
Today our company has a complex structure, and employs many skilled technicians. Up-to-date technologies and many years' experience of our employees make our products best in quality and taste.
"Alfa-Nistru" JSC strategy is in the production of ecologically pure products of high quality that correspond to the international standards and clients' requirements on advantageous prices.

The juices are produced in accordance with the "Tetra Pak" technology (Sweden). It permits to preserve the useful product qualities for a long time. Unlike the traditional systems sterilizing the product in the package, in case of the aseptic package, the product is sterilized separately and then it is filled in the previously sterilized package. All the process of the product sterilization and juice packing is performed with the aseptic conditions.
This system permits removing from the products:
microorganisms, able to reproduce under conditions of warehousing and distribution,
