Salyan Brewery has now been able to become a producer of quality beer in Azerbaijan and is a modern plant of the 21st century with the latest equipment. But up to this stage, the Salyan Brewery has come a long way and has a rich history.
The entity was founded in 1966 within the “AZERITTIFAG” Union during post-Soviet era. The holding had its own chain of stores, where all products were sold. The first name of the plant was Salyan Beer and Non-Alcoholic Plant, the main activity of which was the production of various beer and lemonades. There were only 4 such entities in Azerbaijan.
Since 1989, the brewery continued its operation under the leadership of Akif Mammadyarov. Akif Mammadyarov played a huge role in the formation and development of this entity. After the resignation, he was proposed as a good manager to lead the brewery, and he chose this still considered a small and seasonally working entity. After Akif Mammadyarov headed the plant, he imposed discipline, received new equipment from the center. And he managed to improve the quality and sales of products.
In 1991, after the collapse of the USSR, the entity began to experience difficult days. This was due to the fact that the ingredients were sent from Moscow. The plant was literally on the verge of ruin. But after the arrival of our national leader Heydar Aliyev, who raised the entire industry and opened new borders for local entrepreneurs, the brewery continued its activities and acquired new partners.
In 2008, the brewery was headed by Elmar Mammadyarov, son of Akif Mammadyarov. Elmar Mammadyarov is the Director of the entity today. Under his leadership, the brewery began a new era of activity. Elmar Mammadyarov carried out the reconstruction of the entity. Today, under his leadership, a modern brewery operates with the latest equipment purchased abroad.
