On May 15, Deka JSC was visited by representatives of the North-West Media Association as a part of the Small Baltic Forum. Managers and employees of information and news agencies, printed media, TV channels from various cities of the North-West were given a tour of the main shops of the production facilities. Journalists were especially interested in Deka JSC after Elena Novikova’s, CEO of the company, meeting with Vladimir Putin when one of the issues was discussion of reduction of excise duties on mead based on inclusion of this product in the list of agricultural products. We remind you about the precedent in case of wine makers, because of that the Government of the Russian Federation should present a definite solution on mead before July 1. 

 Andrey Nikitin, Novgorod Region Governor a.i., also visited Deka together with mass media representatives. He said that the company had been known and in demand even before the President's order to reduce excise duty on mead and examination of expediency of its referring to agricultural products:
“Deka Company has been well-known all over the country for a long time already. All people drinking kvass know Deka. I can’t say that this decision will immediately bring some profits to the region. But this is working on production development, on development of production facilities with creation of new jobs. And certainly we don’t want to lose our traditional recipes such as mead”.

Besides, Andrey Nikitin added that Deka was one of the few enterprises in the country where they seriously worked on national beverages: “We have to support our colleagues in this respect maximally. There are President’s orders, now we have to fulfill them”.
In the end of the tour guests tasted products and mentioned the high quality of beverages, good taste as well as interesting brand names and packaging design. New beer brands Boroda and Český ležák as well as energy drinks U nrg and S.O.VA. were presented.
