The history of the Kyiv dairy plant began in January 1930. The plant was built using the latest technologies at that time; its design was consulted by the enterprise at the Bergerdorf plants in Germany. In the 1930s, only a few dairies in all of Europe had similar equipment with which the Kiev dairy plant was equipped. The task of the new plant was to provide the residents of Kyiv with cheap and high-quality dairy products – kefir, cheese curds, yogurt, Varenets, sterilized cream, sour cream, cottage cheese, and subsequently ice cream and milk sugar. In 1962, on the left bank of Kiev along Marina Raskova Street (now Evgeniy Sverstyuk Street; next to Rusanovka), began the second dairy plant began its work (later became known as JSC Galakton; became part of the Danon company, and production facilities were moved outside the city – the land on which the plant was located was given over to the Galaktika housing complex) and the Kiev dairy plant on the right bank was rightfully assigned the first number.
After the collapse of the Soviet Union, the plant was privatized and it received a new name, OJSC Raduga. In 1997, by decision of the Kyiv Arbitration Court, the company was declared bankrupt. In August 1999, the dairy plant was purchased by the Milkiland company and regained its old name, CJSC First Kiev Dairy Plant. Since October 2007, the enterprise officially became part of the Milkiland company, the plant was moved to another location, and the land plot was given over for housing and office development.
In December 2009, the first Kiev dairy plant was demolished, and the site was cleared for future construction. Here they wanted to begin the construction of a hotel and office complex with built-in premises for trade, public catering and parking, divided into 5 stages with floor-by-floor construction (from 8 to 20 floors) over 10 years. The total area of the hotel complex is 34,500 square meters. Office part 111,000 square meters. The complex parking is designed for 900 cars. The hotel was planned to open for Euro 2012. But after receiving planning permission in May 2011, it had not started as of 2018.
