Joint-Stock Company “Karaway”’s Story and Current State.

It so happens that the bakery plant is older than the city of Angarsk itself. The “Karaway”’s story began in 1949 when the first bread-making plant was built. Since then, they began to bake bread necessary for the builders in that newly established village. Three years later the village was turned into a city and the small bakery plant needed to be expanded. A new bakery plant appeared in the central part of the city on Mira Street in 1957. A new enterprise, “The Bakery plant of Angarsk,” was formed. Implementation of the new high-capacity plant made it possible to expand the production of bread. They began to make breads and baked goods, and in 1967 a new department of waffle and waffle cake production opened. Bakery plant №1 was placed in operation in southwest Angarsk in 1979. The first in Irkutsk rye bread production lines were installed here. The well-known “Angarskiy Darnitskiy” bread was one of the first to be produced. After approving the bakery plant privatization plan in 1993, the enterprise was reorganized into a new joint-stock company “Karaway”. The new status gave the enterprise an opportunity to make decisions independently. In 2005, the bakery plant “Karaway” made its way to the food market of Krasnoyarsk by buying out its municipal bread-making plant “Yenisei”. Since 2006, Shelekhovskiy bakery plant has been a part of the enterprise as well. In 2010, another bakery plant appeared in the city of Ulan-Ude, the capital of the Republic of Buryatia. Nowadays, the joint-stock company “Karaway” includes five bread-making plants which follow the traditions of baking breads and ensure time-tested quality of their products. There are two bakery plants in Angarsk, one in Shelekhov, Ulan-Ude and Krasnoyarsk. Each of them has its own story of development, but all of them have the following as their purpose: serving the consumer and the society in general, creating tasty and healthy foods, and providing people with the most important and necessary kind of food, bread. Due to the unique combination of Russian baking traditions, modern techniques, and effective management, “Karaway” strengthens its positions on the market, obtaining recognition of the consumers, which makes the enterprise one of the most prominent producers of bread, baked goods, and confectionery in East Siberia.
