About the Department

The department of “Expertise of consumer goods” was established in September 2015 as a result of the merger of two departments – “Commodity science and expertise of non-food products” and “Commodity science and expertise of food products.” At present, the department is headed by prof. Ali Hasanov.

“Commodity science and expertise of food products”. In 1967 it was separated from the department of “Commodity Studies”. Training of specialists in this field began in the 30s.

At different times the department was headed by Assoc. Prof. Nazim Mustafayev (1967-1973), Assoc. Prof. Aliya Karasharlı (1973-1983), Assoc. Prof. Ahmad-Jabir Ahmadov (1983-1984; 1989-2001), prof. Aliya Karasharlı (1984-1989), Assoc.Prof. S.H.Isfandiyarov (2001-2005), Assoc.Prof. A.J. Ahmadov (2005-2015).

The department, which has been operating for a long time as ” Commodity Studies of food products”, was later renamed and continued its mission as “Commodity studies and expertise of food products” in new conditions.

Colleagues of the department made scientific reports at conferences in Moscow, Kiev, Odessa, Mogilev, Kharkov, Tbilisi, Almaty. 7 employees of the department received copyright certificates, prepared 4 technological instructions and applied the production of 4 new products to production.

The department conducts state-funded research work on the examination of the quality and environmental friendliness of food products produced at two enterprises of Azersun (“Baku Oil and Food Industry LLC, Caucasus Canning Factory). At the same time, students have a commodity-technological internship at “SUN TEA AZERBAIJAN” OJSC. The department is in constant contact with the production. Research work is carried out in connection with the production.

The department carried out research work on “Study of the consumer properties of canned fruits and vegetables, edible oils, cereals and fish products produced in Azerbaijan” dedicated to the problem of “Ways to increase the consumer value of food products offered to the population in Azerbaijan.”

“Commodity science and expertise of non-food products”. The department has been operating since 1967 on the basis of the department of “Commodity Studies”. In 1967-1976, the department was headed by a prominent Azerbaijani scientist on commodity science, associate professor Soltan Salmanov. In 1976-1985 Ph.D., associate professor Javanshir Valimammadov, in 1985-1992 prof. Ali Panah oglu Hasanov, in 1992-1994, Assoc.Prof. Nuraddin Hasanov, 1994-2008, Ph.D., Assoc.Prof. J.M Valimammadov, in 2008-2014, Ph.D., Assoc. Prof. S. I.  Abdullayeva headed it.

According to the new specialty approved by the Cabinet of Ministers in 2009, the department was merged with the department of “Expertise of consumer goods” and renamed “Commodity science and expertise of non-food products.”


The department had training program on bachelor’s and master’s degree  in 2 specialties: “Commodity science of non-food products” and “Consumer goods quality examination”.
