"SUT BULAK" CLOSED JOINT STOCK COMPANY
In January 1996, within the framework of the implementation of the Kyrgyz-Swiss intergovernmental dairy programme, the "Sut Bulak" Closed Joint Stock Company was established with the funds provided by the Swiss Government as the major shareholder and part of the shares were distributed (free of charge) to the farmers of Issyk-Kul district.
Investors treated the construction of the enterprise with Swiss exactitude and precision. Experts from Switzerland explored all the regions of Kyrgyzstan in search of the best place to build a modern cheese factory. The main task was to find an environmentally friendly place, similar to Switzerland in terms of natural conditions. The altitude was important, because we needed alpine meadows (1700-2500 meters above sea level) with their special motley grass. The plant was built at an altitude of 1720 meters on the outskirts of the village Jyluu-Bulak in the Tyup district of Issyk-Kul region. The production is located in the center of the Tyup district and the company maintains friendly relations not only with its own staff, but also with suppliers who are exclusively farmers with natural methods of milk production.
