The article offers use of economic and mathematical model of optimal functioning of fruit and vegetable storages in agricultural companies in accordance with the maximum profit criterion. The model takes into account use of fruit and vegetable infeed and shipment facilities, available and recruited labour resources, other production resources (heat, electric power, containers, etc.) and financial resources with introduction of additional restrictions. Algorithm of calculation of certain technical and economic ratios is recommended for practical realisation of the model. The proposed economic and mathematical model of fruit and vegetable storage functioning provides a possibility to optimise the following indicators: structure of stored fruit and vegetable products by types, distribution of investments by main directions including renovation of operating and expansion of existing facilities.
