After the Artsakh war of 2020, many people resettled in Armenia. Artyom Sargsyan, one of the refugees who chose to settle in the Vayots Dzor region, founded a Soft Drinks Manufacturing Company with Artur Rustamyan in the Agarakadzor settlement in 2022.
Operating for a year, the company is poised to expand its production capacities, emphasizing a commitment to accelerating the overall production process.
Based on the importance of promoting local products in the region, the Syunik-Development NGO, under the Improvement of Income Possibilities in Rural Areas of Armenia project, has extended support to the ArtLime Soft Drinks Manufacturing Company. This assistance includes a cutting-edge blocking device, increasing the production speed from 80 bottles per hour to 250-300 bottles per hour.
Acquired through the sub-grant project of Syunik-Development NGO, this equipment empowers the company to streamline production, augment output, penetrate new markets, and generate employment opportunities in tandem with increased production.
It is worth noting that this project was implemented with the support of the German Bread for the World organization.
