One of the main holidays of the year, Nauryz Meiramy, is approaching. It embodies spring renewal, the triumph of love, fertility and friendship. The day of the spring equinox was also celebrated at the enterprises of the Kazakhmys Group.

During Nauryz, entrances and premises of the key production enterprises of the Kazakhmys Group were decorated with national and festive decorations. In canteens on March 22, the day of the holiday, in addition to the main menu, employees were offered national dishes: shubat, kymyz, shelpek-bauyrsak, irimshik-kurt and, of course, Nauryz-kozhe, consisting of seven ingredients that symbolize the seven elements of life: water, meat, salt, fat, flour, milk and cereals (rice, corn or wheat).
