With the view of development of a non-production activities area and external influence to the life of the region, during the “Days of Kaliningrad region” in the Federation Council in December 2006, OVA agroindustrial holding conducted an exhibition and presentation timed to the 60th anniversary of the region and aimed at discussion in detail of the following theme: “Status and prospects of the social and economic development of the Kaliningrad region”.

In the framework of the exhibition, there were round table meetings organized with the participation of the head of the Ministry for Agriculture of the Russian Federation, including the one addressing the “Global agricultural market challenges and food supply security” theme; the first international theoretical and practical conference “Strategy of improvement of material status and technological level of agricultural producers”; presentation of a target program project “Development of dairy cattle-breeding and increase in milk output in Russia in the period of 2009-2012”.
Young experts are the future of the agriculture. Education of qualified personnel is one of the main priorities of the governmental agriculture policy. OVA understands perfectly well that there is a need to attract young experts in agriculture, production and management to the sector.
In addition, as well as any other producer, OVA understands the need to educate personnel for it to be able to promote and popularize the production of the company on the market. Working as an agroindustrial holding, OVA strives to decrease its dependence on the external factors, including the provision of the personnel. OVA trains most of its experts on its own by sending the prospective employees to study in the core institutes of higher education, constantly organizing trainings for personality and professional development carried out by the best experts in the fields. Trainings and conferences are organized not only for the directly employed personnel but also for the employees for the big distribution companies on the local markets to give them a better understanding of the concept of the company and its brands, to inspire them with the cultural meaning of the brands and to increase their motivation in working with the company’s product range.
Thanks to its high quality and advanced manufacturing technologies, OVA production is highly esteemed by the consumers and experts.
OVA is a long-time leader in numerous contests and wins various prizes for quality and range of its products. Canned food produced by OVA regularly wins medals and diplomas in prestigious international exhibitions.
