Last year, the plan for export of condensed and dry licorice extract was fulfilled by 104%, and for export of root-by 105%. The complex’s products are sent to Serbia, China, the United Kingdom, the United Arab Emirates and India.
The natural conditions and geographical location of the Lebap velayat create conditions for the accumulation of a large concentration of useful substances in the root of this medicinal plant. The yield of useful substances after processing from the licorice root collected on both banks of the Amu Darya from Kelif to Gazachak is much higher than in plants growing in other places of this type of plant. This explains the high demand for agricultural products.
Licorice root and products obtained from it by processing are used in the pharmaceutical and food industries.
