About us

The first production capacity of the enterprise “Chernigivryba” was built in the 50’s of the last century. Then, during the reconstruction of Chernigiv after the World War II, it was decided to place a new industrial area on the outskirts near the village Podusivka, within which was built smokehouse and warehouse handler for salted fish. It was not yet a complete fish processing production, the main purpose of business was the distribution of salted fish that have been brought to the trading network of Chernigiv region. The smoking plant was considered simply as a means of conservation of salt production in order to extend the implementation. But to the honour of builders who created the company in those days, it is necessary to say that  smoking chambers that was built more than 50 years ago, after some repairs and refittings  are still working. Now “Chernigivryba” uses classic technique of smoking fish, which requires great man-hours and staff, but provides unrivaled “natural” taste of products.

In the late 60’s there was carried out a large-scale reconstruction of “Rybzbut” as the company was called at that time, there was built a workshop for salting fish. But above all there was built a refrigerated warehouse cooler on 1200 m2 of railway access roads. “Rybzbut” has become a full-fledged fish processing enterprise, which has been able to conduct a full cycle of production of fishery products from import frozen raw materials and its processing into a various products (salted, dried fish, hot and cold smoked).

During the 70-80’s there was conducted individual expansion of production space, upgrading various types of production and auxiliary equipment, modernization of the fleet, that made the company the largest manufacturer and supplier of fish products in the Chernigiv region and often worked in night shifts.

In 1995 it was legally established in its present form Closed Joint Stock Company “Chernigiv company for processing and sale of fishery products” Chernigivryba. “

In the 2000 the company was made not so much in volume but very significant technological upgrading – replaced by ammoniac refrigeration equipment by modern freon, thanks to that the company ceased to be a potential man-made threat to the city and the environment.

Today the company “Chernihivryba” thanks to the found investments carries out repairs and refitting production capacity, brings the production conditions to all requirements of the regulations.
